Red Turf, Blue Balls, Pink Balls And Other Disturbing Sports Color Choices

1 of 7


    Okay, it's not exactly a trend yet but now there are two teams with freaky-deeky red turf football fields. 

    Canyon High School in New Braunfels, Texas are the latest to join the, "And you will know us by our raging red turf" crowd.  

    First out of the gate with the fire red gridiron scheme was FCS Champs Eastern Washington (they beat Delaware 20-19 in a squeaker to secure the title).  

    Inexplicably they didn't rename their teams the Bloody Eagles.

    Blue balls just don't, um, feel right. They feel downright painful.

Yellow on Yellow

    There's mellow yellow, there's Bruce Lee's yellow jump-suit yellow (which also worked well for Uma Thurman in the Kill Bill flicks) and then there's this ensemble of puke-yellow.

Steelerettes: Early 60s

    Maybe this is why the Pittsburgh Steelers don't have cheerleaders anymore, the original color scheme back in the early '60s wasn't exactly fetching.

    This bizarro hardwood kinda looks like they cracked an egg in the middle of it.
