Something interesting is brewing in Seattle, where the Seahawks announced yesterday that they’ll be wearing navy over grey for this Sunday’s game against the Commies.
This will be the fourth consecutive home game that Seattle has not worn its default mono-navy combo. Here are the previous three games in that streak:
Seattle went three consecutive home games without going mono-navy during a late-season stretch last year. But when’s the last time they did it for four straight home games? Not only that, but the Gridiron Uniform Database indicates that Seattle’s next home game after this Sunday — Week 12 against the 49ers — will find them wearing their neon-green alternates. If so, that would make five straight home games without the mono-navy combo. Has that ever happened?
Personally, I dislike the mono-navy look, so I’m pleased that the Seahawks are mixing things up this season. Here’s hoping this means the navy unitards are on the way out.
ITEM: Faaaascinating New Substack Interview
Have you ever wondered how teams go about finding the advertisers who buy space on their uniforms? For this week’s Uni Watch Premium article over on Substack, I have an exclusive and pretty lengthy interview with someone who works at one of the agencies that teams hire to execute these deals. I learned a lot in the course of this interview, and I’m pretty sure you’ll learn a lot from reading the transcript. It’s full of fascinating behind-the-scenes info!
You can read the first part of the article here. In order to read the entire thing, you’ll need to become a paid subscriber to my Substack (which will also give you full access to my Substack archives).
My thanks, as always, for your consideration.

It’s all fun and games until someone loses an eye. (Or, in this case, a plant.)
Sigh. But I know it comes with the territory.

I was never into Hi-C. But that might have turned out differently if I’d been aware of this package design.
