We’re deep in the middle of the NBA and NHL playoffs, game 7’s every other night, a large scale cheating conspiracy in the MLB…but it’s undeniable that the NFL is the straw that stirs the drink in sports. So much so, that the biggest story of the day was the NFL approving alternate helmets starting in 2022. Couldn’t possibly be put into swift action in time for the 2021 season, so naturally it sparked unbridled enthusiasm a year early.
Even more concerning, there were way too many people on the Internet that took time out of their day to comment on this. There may be no weirder segment of Twitter than sports uniform Twitter.
Why do I feel like this tweet made an unacceptable number of men inexplicably horny? The creamsicle Bucs uniforms are XXX porn for football guys there almost should be a NSFW warning on them.
It’s not even like a jersey alternative that fans could actually buy in a store and wear, anyone that is genuinely excited about an alternative helmet design is off their rocker. It’s a fucking helmet guys, relax.
The Saints have to make the black helmets happen? Chargers think they should get a different helmet design each game? Bengals prefer the all whites? Let’s focus on building an offensive line first. Protect your QB and then maybe you can worry about how cool looking the concussion prevention devices are.
Is watching the Saints run trick plays with Taysom Hill going to be any more enticing to watch with a black helmet? Joe Burrow running for his life getting a lot of 🔥🔥🔥 tweets from you guys in those neutral tiger stripes.
