Where the gold is gold, and so is the yellow

Ugly, bumblebee jerseys

Honk if you think this is ugly as sin!

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.

Puke

I see yellow pants, black shirts and white numbers. No gold here.

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?).

    F*** Shitsburg.

  2. Very nice w/ the Gold/Yellow comparison. I think these are ugly, but nobody ever wants to change the uniforms because they want to stick with ‘tradition.’ Every time a “traditional’ throwback comes out, nobody likes it either. If we never changed uniforms, they’d all still be this or the brown/yellow Denver ones from a couple years back.

    • Thanks. I agree with you on NFL throwbacks. The worst is when the throwbacks look like jerseys from Any Given Sunday, I think the Eagles (and/or Jets?) had some like that.

    Don’t the Browns wear orange helmets? That is just as misleading.

  6. To my knowledge, nobody alludes to the Browns as the Brown and Tangerine

    You guys take thing FAR too literally, and don’t understand the power of the insane mind. If you did you would realize that Steelers fans call it the black and gold, because they are FANS of the team, and it’s a way of showing fandom. This is going to strike many of you as odd, or stupid, or make you think that Steelers fans are dumb for saying it. This leads me to question your sanity. Obviously you’re insane, at least a little bit. For otherwise how is this issue directly affecting you? Maybe you’ve grown up in Baltimore, Cincinnati, or Cleveland all your life, [If that be the case, I apologize], maybe you’re just bitter about the fact that the AFC North has the 2nd most superbowls wins out of the entire NFL, and only 2 teams have superbowl wind in them, whatever the case you’re insane to some magnitude, and need to come to accept the fact that people say insane things, in support of things they feel they are emotionally attached to.
    Whatever the case, the steelers have 6 trophies for a reason, and have my support through and through.
