Vintage Uniforms! Say What?????
OK, sports fans…we are getting close to March Madness! And I think I have been “holding back” on my sports excitement….but I just gotta talk about sports today. 😉
If you have followed me on this Blog, you know that I am a sports fanatic! I love sports, particularly the Kansas City Royals baseball and they actually were one of the two teams in the World Series the year before and then last season they not only were one of the two teams in the World Series…they won the World Series! yep! so cool!….and a long, long time coming!
AND the Kansas City Chiefs football….they made it to the play-offs but their “run” to the Superbowl stopped abruptly….oh, well there is always next near. Perhaps they will do like the Royals and come back stronger for next season.
AND now ….yes,….. now we are into college basketball, particularly, the Kansas Jayhawks!
The Kansas Jayhawks are looking to hopefully win their 12th consecutive Big 12 Championship….which is simply amazing for a team to accomplish such a feat. No other team in the Nation has done that and this years tourney starts March 9 in Kansas City at the Spring Center. Fingers crossed on that tourney.
And then there is the Big Dance tourney….the whole enchilada! The National Championship! The last time Kansas won that Championship was in 2008. So it is time. I am so excited.
Another exciting thing is the vintage uniforms. These date back to 1988 when Kansas won the National Championship. It is a way of honoring that team. Saturday, Kansas will wear these uniforms against Texas.
You might ask,…. who was on that team in 1988? well, that would be Danny and the Miracles!
(No, my friends….Danny and the Miracles were not a singing group…although the name does sound like it, doesn’t it?) But to be precise….that would be Danny Manning and the rest of the great team.
Sorry, I digress…..back to the vintage uniforms!
Below is a sample pic of what the uniforms will look like. It is not like we haven’t seen them before…a few Kansas teams have worn the replicas…but with the longer shorts. 🙂
The whites of course are for home games, but those shoes…..I mean those shoes are something else. I hope they are not that yellow-gold color, but oh well, ….it is only for a few games and it is to honor Danny and the Miracles.
Ok guys…I am really pumped! I will still be front and center cheering on my Jayhawks with the familiar chant…Rock Chalk Jayhawk…KU!
Have a great Middle of the week day….Happy Wednesday to all my dear readers.
