Today my Thoughts for Thursday is going to be more of a rant... and feel more than free to add your two cents (whether you agree or disagree with me) at the end.
Vikings colors are Purple/Gold/White, Twins colors are Red/White/Blue, Wild colors are Red/Green/Wheat/Gold, Timberwolves colors are Blue/Black/Silver/Green/White; those are the major sports teams in Minnesota.
My question is simple... why is it, when I go to games, I see girls wearing Pink sports apparel? From the above mentions team colors no where did I list Pink.. I can't think of a single major sports team with the color Pink; can you? I can surely understand if you are wearing a pink shirt with no team logo on it or something saying you support breast cancer research... hell, I support it and I have NOTHING against the color pink; I love the color Pink. My teams were not founded on the color Pink though, therefore you should not be wearing it.
My theory is: the girls who do wear it are not real fans. If you were a true Vikings fan you'd bleed Purple; I do. If you really loved Joe Mauer (and his lips) you'd wear his shirt in blue; I do.
Here is a whole website with Pink sports merch. Some pictures I found of pink crap:
All that being said, this is the only jersey that deserves to be Pink ('cause Brett's a bitch):
On a separate note: TJack will be playing this Sunday and I am full of HOPE! SKOL VIKINGS!!! I'm sure I'll be watching with a hangover...
Anyone have thoughts on this?
