Here’s something that’s totally pointless!
If you haven’t already checked them out, go here.
I honestly don’t know WHAT to think. I don’t hate them nearly as much as I thought I was going to. And, actually, I don’t hate them nearly as much as I did when I first gazed eyes upon them this morning. I’m still an ardent hater of the green Nike just HAD to shoe-horn into our color scheme, but I guess there’s nothing you can do about that.
I first read about them on my iPod Touch without seeing the pictures and I was fucking alarmed when they were talking about “feathers” on the uniform. All I could picture were those fruity shoulder-pad feathers on the Oregon Ducks uniforms and I wanted to puke. But, whatever is running up the legs of these Seahawks uniforms are not feathers. Whatever they are, they’re not totally disruptive.
What saved the whole thing for me, what turned my sourpuss upside down, were the grey alternate jerseys. Those things are SICK. I very much look forward to all the combinations the team opts to use, so long as they include one of the grey halves. I am ALL about the grey.
As for the helmet, ehh. I’m not wild about the design in the front. But, I like the darker color scheme.
Overall, who gives a shit? I’d have them wear those hideous, shit-brown throwback Packers jerseys as long as it meant I was watching a winning football team.
