OMG HEADLINE NEWS: NEW DUCK UNIFORMS

Sometimes around the EW office we like to play "predict tomorrow's R-G front page," and sports news is often a sure bet. The not-so- Daily Emerald (online all the time, print, not so much) is already tweeting and posting that Ducks Football has NEW UNIFORMS (or basically an update of the Rosebowl outfits according to Nikeinc.com) and we figure the R-G will be close behind with full frontal Duck coverage.

GoDucks.com indicates the uniforms will of course make Duck football players into knights in shining armor with "Chain Maille Mesh" and even better, there will be "strategically placed seams, pads and cooling zones that help minimize distraction and optimize protective coverage."

So what exactly are the seams distracting us from? And exactly how will the uniforms "redefine reality"?

The Daily Emerald is pretty excited about football, it looks like every other post on the site is ball related. 

Hey if football is what it takes to get people to read the news, we're all for saving print media and the Emerald has unleashed some good journalists out into the world. Someone's gotta cover the green issues in this town though (and print Dan Savage), and that's EW. Speaking of green, call us hippies (and we know you do) but we were kind of sad the UO wasn't on the Sierra Club's top 10 green schools list, but hey lucky number 13 is not bad. 

As long as we're on Ducks and the Emerald, it looks like the new Emerald logo is not up on the website yet. We're seeing it around town on new black boxes sitting next to our red boxes.

Is it us, or does it remind you of Atari?
