As I watched the Mets game yesterday I couldn’t help but turn off the game within 30 seconds because of the monstrosity that is the San Diego Padres home Sunday uniforms.
I read this in Wiki Answers
Major League Baseball has granted the Padres the right to wear the camo uniforms whenever they want, according to a local SD newscast. The Padres will wear them for military-related games. FYI, the starting pitcher decides which uniform will be worn on game day
In addition, apparently the Padres wear these uniforms every Sunday home game.
Well I think I speak for everyone in saying that if there’s one good reason to stop the war in Iraq it would be to prevent these pitiful jerseys from ever being worn again.
I mean is it so hard to come up with something new? You don’t HAVE to wear camouflage to honor troops. How about red, white, and blue? How about just army fatigue style?
I’m secretly convinced the brass in San Diego wants this criticism for the attention. I can’t see any other reason for these abominations of uniforms to be allowed on the field.
