I had an interesting conversation with a good friend of mine the other day about Sunday’s Super Bowl and whether it was a “good quality” game or not. He mentioned Sunday’s Seahawks thrashing as on par with some of the least competitive games in Super Bowl history–with the likes of Super Bowl XX (Bears 46, Patriots 10), Super Bowl XXIV (49ers 55, Broncos 10), and Super Bowl XXXV (Ravens 34, Giants 7).
That comparison is more than fair. Seattle led after the first snap, and never looked back. Denver never established the offensive dominance that had brought them to the big game in the first place, and looked woefully unprepared both offensively and defensively. The game was a blowout, and not much fun for many football fans.
I, on the other hand, enjoyed the game. It may not have been as close as some of the last few Super Bowls, but that was okay with me. Here’s why:
The uniform. Every team needs one, and every player wears one. Most are your average, run-of the mill jerseys, with the team/city name on front and the name and number on the back. But some teams throughout history have claimed… artistic license on the uniform. Different times brought different styles, which clearly showed on the backs of the players.
I say ugliest/most unique because that’s exactly what they are. They may be hideous or just downright ridiculous, but that is what makes them unique. No one else has these, and no one else will. One point of clarification: these are from the MLB, NHL, NBA, and NFL teams only (leaves out ABA, AFL, etc.). Leave a comment, let me know what you think!
