Notre Dame Shamrock Series Techfit Uniforms Revealed, Internet Explodes

First off I will admit I'm not the biggest fan of these new Notre Dame "Shamrock Series" uniforms. They look kind of like Michigan's uniforms. The jerseys aren't that bad. But the helmet is...well...two sided. I don't get it. I don't mind the leprechaun on the helmet and I actually think it looks good with the navy helmet but they should have put it on both sides and made the helmet all navy. The leprechaun is reversed on the left side which throws me off. I've never seen the Fighting Irish guy facing to the left. But you know what? It's honestly not that big of a deal. It's a fucking uniform. As long as they keep their colors in it (navy, gold, white, and green) then it's cool. Plus it's only for one game and Notre Dame is going to be the shit out of Miami with them on so I'm cool with it. Just win baby!

In the meantime you owe it to yourself to order the official "Catholics vs Convicts" t-shirt. Only $17. Order today!

Well shit fire. I'm actually in the market for an automobile. The SportsCrack truck is on it's last legs and what would be a better truck to haul around boxes full of shirts then Ripken's very own Suburban? This is no coincidence folks. I have to have this truck!
