The Greatest Fashion Show On Turf

For some, the Super Bowl is about the love of the game, just two teams leaving it all on the field for the pride of their city. Others might even watch the Super Bowl for the commercials or the halftime show. However, in my household, we tune into the big game for the uniforms.

The LA Rams went with a throwback design for this year’s Super Bowl. The jersey is completely draped in a bright cyan-blue, mixing in light gold for the pants and the player’s number and last name. The helmet the uses a much darker blue than the one seen throughout the uniform; this color adjustment accentuates the light gold ram horns, which are also featured on the helmet, just a bit more to be visible in the nosebleed sections at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

This Super Bowl, like the previous four appearances by the New England Patriots, included the players in their white-dominant uniforms. This style of uniform carries the mojo of winning three previous Super Bowl titles. However, the helmet uses an outdated glitter texture to background the logo of a flying head, which seems to be straight out of a Harry Potter novel. Aside from the helmet, the New England Patriots have done a pretty bang-up job with the old color combination of red, white, and blue.

Although Super Bowl LIII was not as exciting as previous years, the uniforms certainly did not disappoint my family. For more information on this topic visit the CBS sports website to hear a sports columnists viewpoint on this discussion.

    Thinking about the designs of the uniforms instead of being bored by the game sounds like a fun pastime worth trying. Both uniforms have interesting design especially the helmets of the Rams because the way the horns take up the whole helmet surface. It definitely looks more professional than the tiny New England logos on the Patriots helmets.
