I am watching a college basketball game on television. One of the teams is my beloved alma mater. I wouldn't know it to look at them, though; while there is a red team on the floor, it's not mine, it's State. My team is dressed in unis that render a look suspiciously like that of Tech.*
We must die. We must lose. We are not a yellow team.
Our student body (motto: "Hey! You suck!") has bought into this myth. They are wearing yellow t-shirts. Of course, they are all stupid, and we are, in reality, The University of Long Island, Prince Georges County campus. But usually they're smart enough to wear our actual colors.
There is a technical reason for the allowability of yellow gridkit; we actually have four school colors, since the Calvert family, progenitors of our state, apparently ate a lot of acid before they designed their crest (which served as the basis for our state flag).
Technical or not, this is wrong. The style is ugly, the color is wrong.
The officials, of course, are teh suck. But that's another rant.
We must die. We must lose. Fucking yellow team.
*Glossary: You should already know this, but there is only one State (it's in Raleigh) and only one Tech (it's in Atlanta).
