Uniform Malfunction

March 1, 2013

Uniforms in sports have always been a topic of conversation. We all remember the very short basketball trunks of the past when a player like Wilt the Stilt had pants so short they almost did not cover his bottom side, and today there is the 5′ player whose trunks touch his ankles and looks like he is wearing a skirt. I do not know how some of these short athletes even move in those bulky pants. The old phys-ed bloomers worn by girls in the past looked as good as some of those bulky trunks. Then there are the psychedelic uniforms worn by Oregon football players or the yellow uniforms that Michigan pulled out of the closet a few weeks back. Who can forget Houston when the Astros put on those orange uniforms when they first came into the National League? Of course, I still do not like the pants to the shoes uniforms worn by baseball players today. I still like the knee-length pants. Softball pants are worn to the shoes, not baseball pants. Some of the early female uniforms in basketball were so large that the girls had to wear undershirts to look modest in them. The cynic in me would say that all these trends are ploys by sporting good companies to sell new uniforms. Whatever, some look good and some should never hit the court.
