The Worldwide Web was filled with ugliness yesterday after the Steelers unveiled their atrocious throwback uniforms and bloggers rushed to express dismay and also explain how their eyes had been violated by the ugly soaked new garments. While the Steelers uniforms are especially horrid, I don’t hold it against them too much. What can they do? They wore bumble bee jerseys back in the day, and they are just being true to history (as in, we’ve always been putrid ass-clowns and we Still are). With the cheating happy Steelers’ fugly uniforms in the spotlight, though, it seems like a good time to point out something about their “regular” uniforms, and try to teach their lunk-headed fan base a little bit about colors.
Fair followers of The Legend may know that Squeelers fans refer to their team as the Black and Gold. Boy do those smug bastards love their Black and Gold. Unfortunately, they do not know the difference between gold and yellow. A gold brick, for instance, would carry a tasty, hefty price tag. A yellow brick, on the other hand, is just a yellow brick. The Bond villain Goldfinger wouldn’t seem so threatening if he was just “Yellowfinger.” Please look at the picture below and tell me where the mother flipping gold is.
It is black and yellow, Steelers fans, black and canary yellow (stealing a term I heard Erie radio sports personality Chico Bormann use often) to be more precise. I realize that many people are visual learners, and I want to help. Since education is a hallmark of great blogging, we are providing a color review in pictures. Featured colors are black, gold, and yellow. Happy learning!
About the Author: I am a Cleveland sports and Buffalo Sabres fanatic. I'm currently living in Erie, but even when I'm not there, Erie runs deep in me. I'm an ex multi-sport goalie, and we goalies tend to see things a bit differently. I went to college with Cecilio's Scribe and I am also a Big Red afficiando. Otherwise my college sports loyalties are all over the place. I try to keep my posts light, but I'm a Cleveland fan so the occassional rant is possible (inevitable?).
