My Wisconsin Badgers start playing football in a couple of weeks here. I'm excited; this is Wisconsin. We love us some football. Sunday is the holy day 8 months of the year around here because we go to church... 4-5 months out of the year it's because the Packers play. And no, that's not heresy. God is also a cheesehead.
As we discovered in our list of the coolest football helmet designs you've never seen... You'll find it right next to this article.... there is a flip side to that coin. While there are some helmet designs, especially as you filter your way down to some of the smaller schools and arena leagues.... more so if you take the time to look back in time... that are absolute works of art, there are also some that fall on the other end of the spectrum.
So in the course of putting together our weekly power rankings with my kids, I have learned that the helmet... a safety feature we all kind of just take for granted can, in the right circumstances, be a form of art.
We all have our favorite tea, and with that come team colors. Some of us are lucky enough to have teams who's color scheme is cool; the black and silver of thee Raiders has always made for cool hats and shirts.
