The NFL may be played from September through February, but by no means does the league take the other six months off.Exhibit A: Tuesday’s over-the-top nuttiness regarding the league’s “brand new” Nike uniforms.
Except for the Seattle Seahawks’ awful redesign, the get-ups were exactly the same as last year’s.
The only difference is that they now feature Nike’s iconic swoosh as opposed to whatever Reebok calls its logo. Yippee!
So on a day that should’ve been reserved for discussing Kentucky’s national championship or previewing the upcoming Major League Baseball season (opening day is Wednesday) the internet instead went berserk over some NFL laundry.
The NFL is NO match for anything that even tries to get in its way.
The league dominates television during the season, but the last month or so proves actual games don’t even have to be played for the NFL to reign supreme.
