It began on Monday, Labor Day, when the Cleveland Browns tweeted "Announcement Coming Wednesday" and in the background you could make out the stripes of the Browns Color Rush uniforms. People began to speculate...."Is this going to be an announcement regarding the Browns uniforms"? Some speculated that it was going to be announced that the Color Rush uniforms were going to worn at all home games. Well, in the 3 p.m. hour today the speculation came to an end with a tweeted announcement from the Cleveland Browns, including a :55 second video of highlights from last year of the Browns in their Color Rush Uniforms and in the background, the music of Joe Cocker singing "You Are So Beautiful".
It's official! The Color Rush uniforms are no more. After petitioning the NFL, the Color Rush uniforms are now the Cleveland Browns Primary Colors. In fact, this Sunday, at the Home Opener, against the Tennessee Titans, the Browns will be wearing their new Primary Colors. Plus, we will be seeing the Primary Colors on a more regular basis, too.
After all, the fans loved them and purchased the Color Rush uniform jersey whenever and wherever they could find one. The Coaches saw it, the players saw it, too, considering some of the best games for the Browns last year happened when they were wearing the Color Rush uniforms. Personally, I'm all for it. Out of the current uniform choices for the Browns, the Color Rush was clearly the best.
I will be at the Home Opener this Sunday and I can hardly wait to see the "NEW" Browns in their "NEW" Primary Colors. You can catch all the action beginning with the Pre-game at 11 a.m. and Kickoff at 1 p.m. on Akron's Home of the Browns, 97.5 WONE!! GO BROWNS! BEAT THE TITANS!
