NEW CLOTHES, NEW YOU

A football team is a lot like a person: it matures over time, a breakdown of one part can lead to damage at others trying to compensate, and it buys new clothes in springtime because this is the year it's going to look super good in public. Does it always work? Lord, no, and there are always plenty of people willing to let you know just how stupid that new uniform you're so excited about looks.

But haven't we all had bad fashion times? I can personally point to a number of foibles in my own wardrobe history:

  • The sweater vest phase
  • A number of Hollister t-shirts
  • Pleated pants, non 50 year old man edition
  • A pair of powder blue Southpole shorts
  • Jos. A. Bank
And those are just the ones I'm willing to admit to/haven't blocked out in my memory. I spent most of my formative years in the 90s, and that means there are pictures of me wearing a neon fanny pack as a child. IT'S NOT EVEN LIKE I HAD ANYTHING IMPORTANT TO CARRY AROUND.

The point is, go easy on these teams. It's about figuring out what works best for your shape and personality. Sometimes that takes a little while, but it's better to explore than to stay bland. (Though, seriously, what the hell is with those numbers, Syracuse.)
