Blue and orange

Recommended Posts

Topic description says it all. Blue and orange in my opinion is the prettiest colour combination in sports and yet it's sadly underused. How many red/white/blue, red/black/white and blue/white/black teams do we need?

Some fine examples of blue and orange executed beautifully:

Edmonton Oilers, my all-time favourite:

New York Islanders:

My alma mater (Wisconsin-Platteville) also has blue and orange as its colors. So does Auburn University (another team that hasn't been mentioned here).

That said, I've never been terribly impressed with that combo myself. It does help to have a good third color as an accent (e.g. the Edmonton Oilers' copper).

Funny thing is I find blue and orange to be the most horribly overrated color combo in all of sports. I just find that while it generally looks good at first, it always becomes annoyingly dull really quick.

Although my blind hatred for a certain blue and orange team doesnt exactly help its cause <_< ........

that's b/c blue&orange is NYC's official colors

Right. And this is a great topic. Another one, as someone else mentioned, might be royal blue and green, and I agree with this. I loved the Mavs' current alt, and enjoyed the old Whalers uniforms as well. Those two and the old Seattle Seahawks are the only royal blue and green teams I can think of -- anymore?

And for fun:

The Oilers haven't worn Blue and Orange since 1996:

Please don't show this jersey anymore. It hurts too much. As an Oilers fan, and in the wake of those awful new RBK jerseys, I think I miss this gorgeous jersey more than I missed Gretzky.
