It’s nice to know that Nike doesn’t discriminate on the basis of color-blindness or general grasp of aesthetics. The athletic shoe and apparel company just rolled out their latest set of special uniforms for the rivalry games of the schools they represent, and I’m not impressed.
A lot of people get excited over these rollouts, but I’m not one of them. For example, the Ohio State getup is a nice nod to the 1942 national championship team, but those scarlet helmets just look…weird, man. Is that my team? Will there be buckeyes on those helmets? Almost certainly not, but what I’m trying to say is, “Get off my lawn, you little bastards!”
Here’s the full lineup here. And then come back and tell me what a curmudgeon I am.
