Ugly Uniform of the Day
I am a fan of the throwback jersey. Most of the time. I make exceptions for that from time to time, though.
Before their run of four Super Bowl wins in the 1970's that put them on the map, the Pittsburgh Steelers were the most hapless franchise in the NFL. You would think the Steelers would want to forget about those days. But, no.. The Steelers have chosen to wear this ugly ensemble as a throwback uniform. This is what the Steelers wore in the 1960's when they royally stunk up the field.
The gold helmets and white pants do not go with the black jerseys. My high school wore black and gold, and they never tried to wear a gold helmet with white pants and a black jersey. But, the Steelers are in the NFL. They should know better.
This comes from the same city that gave us the Pirates' mix and match uniforms in the 1970's. Go figure.
