I think these uniforms are appropriating duck culture...
Just kidding about that, but tomorrow the Oregon Ducks will seriously be wearing uniforms that actually make the players look like Ducks when they take the field against the Colorado Buffaloes. If you are unaware, the University of Oregon is also the alma mater of Nike founder and former CEO Phil Knight. Oregon always has the best uniforms because of that. They also have an insane number of uniform combinations, like millions. There actually may be more possible Oregon uniform combos then there are powerball number and March Madness bracket combinations combined. I don't think Oregon has worn the same uniform twice in like 20 years. That probably isn't true but you'd believe it right? I do and am going to start telling people that even if it's not true, what's the worst that could happen?
I absolutely love the look and think it's a pretty funny idea to have the duck legs in the uniform. My only question is what took so long? I feel like this is a perfect fit and something we need to see across all other sports. We need to see more teams truly embrace their mascots and start incorporating it into their uniform and lives in general. Have the Chicago Bears wear bearskin rugs as jackets on the sidelines when it's cold. Instead of hats, have everybody on the Kansas City Royals wear a Crown. Honestly how perfect would that have been as reigning World Series Champs? Make everybody on the Utah Jazz learn how to play a jazz instrument, (if I was there I'd call double bass) Let's have the Carolina Panthers wear cheetah uniforms, which is close enough to a Panther. Let's give the Dallas Cowboys guns and lassos...okay maybe something different but I think you get my point.
I am not a lot of things, but one thing I am is an idea man and I think this new true mascot uniform campaign could really start taking off if given the chance. Just picture it now...
