I like football. I have ovaries. And in fact I also like pink. Does that mean every clothing item the NFL markets to me and my people has to be that one color? To be fair, this year’s Super Bowl XLIX section on the NFL website isn’t a complete sea of pink, so snaps for the NFL! Kidding. They didn’t forget to include Patriots and Seahawks thongs in their merchandise selection, so…snaps revoked. Not to mention that almost all of the shirt options for women are embellished with glitter and look like something you could buy at Abercrombie. Not to mention there’s a deep V with the words “Finest in the AFC” printed on it. Cue dramatic eyeroll.
If you like pink jerseys, go ahead and rock one on Sunday! Seriously, do you girl. But if you’re looking for something, perhaps, in the colors of your team, here are some non-ridiculous options.
NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS
Blue, red, white, and Tom Brady. Who the hell needs pink?
Patriots Tri-Blend V-Neck ($34)I just think this is a cool non-frilly design!
Patriots Nike Pacer Performance Shorts ($40)Subtle, yet awesome! Not to mention comfortable and stretchy for a day of eating wings and watching football.
Patriots AFC Champions Trophy Collection T-Shirt ($32)Long-sleeved tees are my personal fave, and this one is limited edition and appropriately ccelebratory, sans rhinestones.
Rob Gronkowski Nike Red Game Jersey ($95) Just in case you do want a jersey, why not red? It’s more interesting than navy and an actual Patriots color!
Click through for Seahawks gear! No glitter included.
It’s actually unfortunate that I’m not a Seahawks fan, considering they have the best jerseys and the coolest colors in the league, bar none. Not to mention I want to wear this amazing Seahawks-inspired makeup! Oh and Russell….swoon.
Seahawks Exclusive Stretch Acrylic Flex Hat ($27)Yeah, this is marked “Men’s.” Because they couldn’t possibly just have a gender neutral “Clothing” section.
Majestic Seahawks Gray 2014 NFC Champions Hoodie ($50) Something about this particular set of Roman numerals make me okay with having them printed in gargantuan letters on the front of a sweatshirt.
Seahawks Pro Line Gray Reversible Jacket ($80)So normal, so stylish, so versatile.
Men’s Seahawks Knit Boxer Shorts ($18)I had to dip into the Men’s section again, because the Women’s section has no boxers and I REQUIRE BOXERS FOR LOUNGING DAMMIT.
Super Bowl XLIX Bound Ladies V-Neck T-Shirt ($45)Classy font, not excessively deep V, I’m a big fan.
