The above photo was posted tonight to the official UCLA Athletics Facebook page and, just in case you can't get enough of it, here's a full body shot that's posted to UCLABruins.com.
This has inspired me to try my hand at ghost-writing for our
esteemed Athletic Director. Tomorrow's Word from Westwood Drivel from Dan will read something like this:
The folks at Adidas have put together some really cool uniforms for tomorrow night's Blue-out. All fans are encourage to come to Pauley Pavilion wearing all-blue. And, just in case you can't find me, I'll have on a red hat and white beard to go along with my blue attire. You can call me Papa....Papa Smurf.
Seriously, what was Adidas thinking?
Not only is our basketball team going to look like a bunch of freakin' Smurfs, but these unis are so downright ugly they never should have seen the light of day. Another Adidas #EPICFAIL
Personally, if it were me, I might have tried going with something in line with the LA Nights Unis the football team wore, but in a basketball uni. That might have been cool. But then again, it may not have. It is Adidas that keeps coming up with these awful uniforms.
Hey, Dan! Next time, send me a picture before agreeing to wear them. I'll tell you the truth that the Adidas folks won't.
