Vikings Unveil New, Uglier Uniforms


Though the official unveiling of the Minnesota Vikings' new uniforms takes place tomorrow, Tuffy has diligently worked to provide his readers with a sneak-peek a day ahead of time.

There really aren't many changes to the jersey itself. Additions are the "Vikings" above the numerals on the front chest and the helmeted Viking emblem added to the upper back of the jersey.

Subtractions are more apparent, however. Gone are the white/yellow/purple shoulder bands. Gone, too, is the helmeted Viking emblem from the sleeves; again, he's been moved to the rear of the jersey.

The biggest change to the uniforms will be the return of purple pants -- last seen on the Vikings in the 1970s. It is rumored that the helmeted Viking will appear on the pants -- most likely on the upper hip area.

As well, the horns on the helmet will be more three-dimensional -- like those present on the Vikings' home page.
