Attack of the Bad Uniforms
Last night, the Houston Texans completely dominated the Denver Broncos, beating them 31-13. Given the uniforms that the Texans decided to wear, this is a surprising result. Their normal home uniforms consist of navy blue jerseys and white pants, but they were wearing all red last night. The red jerseys just don't look right, and the sartorial sin is compounded by the matching red pants. This monotone uniform thing is a recent trend in football, and I don't understand it at all. Granted, it's not as bad as those all-yellow uniforms that the West Virginia Mountaineers wore a month or two ago, but they're still pretty bad. And they would still be bad even if professional sports teams had not taken to using lots and lots of different uniforms to drive merchandise sales.
