The Color Orange

To be clear orange is a terrible color. Does it have any redeeming qualities outside of Halloween and hunting vests? Most teams I despise have this retina-burning shade somewhere in their color scheme, and it is just hideous.

The shade of orange Tennessee uses though is particularly disturbing. Can we honestly even call this orange? The only time I have seen that form of orange exist in nature is when I changed my baby cousin’s diaper…that’s right…the Tennessee orange looks like baby poop. I was so glad the last game we played at Neyland the Vols decided to wear those combat uniforms because I did not have to blinded by that off yellow hue they refer to as orange.

Also, to call yourself “The Big Orange” without really wearing orange is odd. Let’s keep orange where it belongs – on the breakfast table and on roadside cones.
