Fashion Police = Color Blind Squares

I've noticed a trend on ESPN and that's getting on my nerves. Many ESPN talking heads and writers seem to feel as if they are bona fide members of the fashion police. These folks just can't hold back criticism of certain team uniforms that would apparently be illegal if they were fashion despots.

While there's nothing wrong with voicing one's opinion, I just happen to disagree with every criticism on this subject that I hear or read. Believe it or not, but there are people who would go insane if all athletes dressed as conservatively as the New York Yankees or the Nebraska Cornhusker football team. Here are the uniforms that have been targeted multiple times by the fashion police at ESPN:

University of Oregon's yellow football uniforms (i just love yellow unis in general)
Clemson University's purple football uniforms (purple & orange is better than all orange)
University of Wyoming's football uniforms (brown & yellow are their school colors... deal with it)
Vancouver Canucks retro V-neck uniforms

I think those retro Canucks uniforms are especially badass; much better then what they wear nowadays. They're clever too (V for Vancouver). Shit, I'd gladly wear one of those jerseys even though I'm a Red Wings fan!

Conclusion: Officers of the fashion police are color blind squares who are enemies of individuality and progress.
