I don't know if you've seen these pictures (also seen below) floating around on the net or in the Oregonian, but word on the street is the Ducks will be wearing their yellow helmets tonight in the Las Vegas Bowl:
(OregonLive.com) If you stare long enough at this picture, you can actually see some little "flower power" markings! Or maybe thats supposed to look like some serious paint-drip...
Apparently, these b-e-a *cough* -utiful specimens change color based on if you're viewing them from above, below, behind, forwards, backwards, upside down, or diagonally if you are in person or if you are positioned to the right, left, or center of your living room if you're watching on TV. (Okay, a little exaggeration, but you get the point.)
Now, for those of you that live in Oregon and read the Oregonian, you've probably fallen in love with columnist John Canzano as much as I have, who, after the "Grellow Helmet Announcement", proceeded to rip the Ducks. Quite hilarious, actually.
And I agree with Canzano on some points. The Ducks 'ought to consider hiring a Offensive Color Coordinator to the payroll. The top prospect for this position is seen below, with his wife.
But on a more serious note, Canzano mentions a good point at the end of this post in his blog, that new helmets can be a real pain. Especially if you've ever worn one of the new helmets that use air instead of actual pads, they can be a real pain the first few days, as it takes awhile to get the air levels adjusted just right. My guess is those are they types of helmets the Ducks wear.
Who knows, by the second quarter, they could all have headaches.
