With the myriad uniform options available in college football, and the relative lack of rigidly-enforced traditions for many teams, schools occasionally turn to cool gimmicks to excite or engage the fans. With this being the first year of Nike NFL uniforms, and many people having the (not entirely accurate) perception of a significant departure in terms of looks from previous years, 2012 seems like the ideal time to bring such uniform themes to the NFL.
Case in point, the San Diego Chargers white-out, aka “White Hot Sunday,” on September 16. The Chargers will wear all white (they’re one of the NFL teams with a white helmet, remember) and encourage fans to do the same. So … do with that what you will.
