Yeah, It's Pretty Much As Bad As I Figured It Would Be

The unveiling came this Thursday. I had predicted that the Minnesota Vikings' new uniforms would be horrible, and indeed, they are. The helmet was only tweaked (the horn now looks three-dimensional, like it belongs in a comic book), but the rest of the uniform, both home and away, makes it perfectly clear that since the Vikings have won as many Super Bowls as an Arena Fooball League team, they may as well dress like one.

I've said it before and I'll say it again: why can't the NFL just skip its horrible uniform period and move on to the time we all know is coming, i.e., the time when those of you (that is to say, stupid people) who think these new uniform designs aren't ridiculously awful finally come around, and everyone goes back to normal? It's going to happen; why can't we just get there already? Do I have to remind you about the NBA in the mid '90s? Don't make me remind you about the NBA in the mid '90s... okay. That's it. You asked for it. And let's not forget baseball, and the hell that the Major Leagues put us through in the late '70s and early '80s.

Don't people realize how stupid it looks when one of these teams (and there are more and more every year) with stupid uniforms plays a team that wears actual football uniforms?

Anyway. Just wanted to let you know that the Vikings' new uniforms are as bad as I figured they'd be.
