Thursdays during the NFL season mean one thing and one thing only: it’s color rush night, baby. The league’s obvious plea for eyeballs has yielded some unsightly efforts to this point — the Miami Dolphins and the infamous Ketchup vs. Mustard game come to mind — but never before has a uniform threatened the retinal safety of a nation like the ones the Seattle Seahawks will wear tonight.
These things are visible from space, which will be helpful if Martians is planning to visit Earth during gametime.
There’s apparently more than meets the eye regarding the significance of these neon duds. Per the team’s website:
Here in the Pacific Northwest,
Green surrounds us,
Green sustains us,
Green drives us forward…
As powerful, enduring and energizing as
the brightest greens of our region
We Are Blue,
We Are Green,
WE ARE 12
Deep stuff. Washingtonians, en masse, are going to be magically transported back to memories of hiking in Olympic National Forest or navigating the Strait of San Juan de Fuca via a professional football team’s uniforms. On a weeknight!
The cheerleaders will also be hard to miss.
What a gimmick. What a sport. What a country. What a time to have eyeballs.
