Life is all about perspective. You might feel poor making $50,000 in comparison to someone pulling in $80,000. But to another person only earning $30,000, you might as well be a millionaire.
So when EN reader Gareth Langley of Southampton, U.K. recently e-mailed us with some information about the uniforms of a French rugby team, our perspective on the Reebok Edge-Super-Duper-Mega-Ultra-Awesome-Humungo-Women-Will-Want-You Uniform System jerseys changed quite a bit.
"Paris Rugby team Stade Francais have just released a new third strip to go with their two "alluring and fabulous" home and away kits.
These two are bad enough, just think of props, with physiques similar to offensive linemen wearing those two jerseys before they hit you with this 'Warhol Inspired' jersey:
I just hope that the guy who designed this is planning to make any jerseys in the USA."
Dear Lord those are hideous. We will never complain about the Reebok Edge-Super-Duper-Mega-Ultra-Awesome-Humungo-Women-Will-Want-You Uniform System jerseys again.
(OK, maybe not.)
For good measure, we found an action shot of one of Stade Francais in action:
