Of all the major American sports, I think that football has the most going on with its uniforms. Between uniform changes, alternate third jerseys and throwback versions, there’s usually at least one new variation every week. Here’s my rundown of the action for week 1 in the NFL:
Tampa Bay: dear god, stop wearing white pants. Pewter pants only please (or bring back the creamsicle).
Miami: aqua pants = yes
Buffalo: no changes. still the worst in the NFL.
San Francisco: good to see the Niners back to their classic look.
Philadelphia: the Eagles’ “standard” uniforms are awful, and they should wear these throwbacks every week. Twitter was exploding today with ‘delphians loving on these.
Washington: yellow pants = yes. please please please tell me this is a permanent change. if so, I declare the Mike Shanahan era an unmitigated success.
This new Das Rascist video, in the form of an 80s text adventure game, has dropped. It’s got some references to “Scenario” in the lyrics (also a sample) and lots of video games in the visuals. Enjoy it.
This video was awesome in 1992. It’s actually still pretty awesome in 2010. Great concept and delivery.
For a recording project in college, three of my friends and I recorded a cover of this song under the name of the Drunken Millennium Singers, changing a few of the words here and there to make them more relevant to us. It was pretty amazing.
 I can’t believe that there’s a wikipedia entry for posse cut. That’s awesome.
 This itself is a pretty good reference to a previous recording project, which was a 60-second fake ad for the Drunken Millennium Singers performing Hits of the Millennium, a parody of those late-night compilation album TV commercials, featuring a small handful of us singing things like Beethoven’s 5th symphony and “Enter Sandman” in the style of a bunch of drunk dudes at a bar.
