Blue Angels Themed Jerseys for Army/Navy Football Game

Post by awal2049 » Tue Nov 28, 2017 2:47 am

Every year, the Navy Midshipmen and Army Black Knights play each other at the end of football season. In recent years, both teams have been sporting custom Jerseys. This year, the Navy's Jerseys resemble the Blue Angels' flight suits, complete with the team logo and American flag patches on each shoulder. The Army uniforms have yet to be revealed. Navy plays Army Saturday, December 9 @ 3:00 pm eastern at Lincoln Field in Philadelphia.

This is really interesting, the official game ball shows a Blue Angel Super Hornet (note the square intakes)

Was it on purpose though....hmmm sometimes designers dont know what they're doing. Just googled "hornet" that shows up so they assume its correct and use it. I hope they knew that they did that.

I am 100% sure that's the case, I don't think there are secret Illuminati graphic designers trying to send codes about the Blue Angels :D

The jerseys are available on Fanatics.com. I ordered one a few days ago. They have some cool sweatshirts and t’s too. Not sure about the football. I’m sure typing “blue angel football” into google will do the same as blue angels football jersey did.

Does anybody know if anything will do a "flyover" today before the game starts?

Thanks
