This homecoming business for the Los Angeles Rams comes equipped with all types of nostalgia. One area that has been of interest for longtime Los Angeles Rams fans is what uniform the players would wear.
The Rams are going back to an old design, albeit probably not the one for which most locals remember them.
When the Rams host the Dallas Cowboys on Saturday in the first preseason game at the Coliseum in 36 years, they will return to the uniforms they largely wore in the 1960s — white uniforms with blue numerals and a blue slash on the shoulder, with a blue and white helmet.
Some uniform silliness in Sioux City, Iowa.
Bishop Heelan football players said they won’t play any different now that the word “PRIDE” has been ordered off their uniforms.
Because of a change implemented by the National Federation of State High School Associations, the Crusaders are no longer able to have “PRIDE” on the back of their uniforms. It is a tradition that reaches back 40 some years.
If a team did not comply with the uniform standards, a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty would be assessed against the coach to begin the game, moving the spot of the opening kickoff.
Micheal Jordan called an autistic man who wears his uniform during pickup basketball games, and sent him some gear.
The man who plays basketball in full Michael Jordan uniform received a surprise from His Airness himself.
Jeffrey Harrison gained attention from playing pick-up ball in Jordan’s full uniform. According to KREM’s Darnay Tripp, Harrison, who is autistic, honors his idol, whom he studies regularly.

The Chinese aren’t too happy about their Olympics uniforms.
Chinese netizens have slammed the yellow and red dress worn by their players at the opening ceremony of Rio Olympic Games, saying they looked like “cheap restaurant waiters and waitresses”.
“I think the dress was utterly ugly. The opening ceremony should be one of the best occasions to display China’s soft power and creative fashions, but dressed in the uniform our sportsmen look like cheap restaurant waiters and waitresses,” state-run China Daily quoted Chen Cheng, a netizen from Beijing as saying.
Why do women wear bikinis for beach volleyball? Business Insider takes a look.
Women’s beach volleyball gets a lot of attention, the majority of which is unfortunately spent on what the athletes are wearing and not on their physical prowess.
The women’s bikini uniforms and whether or not they’re appropriate is hotly debated. Some people often wonder why the women wear the bikinis at all while the men are all allowed to wear tank tops and shorts.
INSIDER looked into the matter and found that the answer is really simple: Women beach volleyball players wear the bikinis because they want to, not because it’s required.
Damn, I was really looking forward to being angrily outraged about it.
