Mason's New Gold Uniforms

I went to watch Local No. 4 VCU face Local No. 7 George Mason on Wednesday night. I was sure funny things would ensue. For example, I figured I'd easily get a blog post out of Mason's new gold uniforms, which the Patriots had worn throughout their winning streak. My feeling was that the uniforms were hideous, something you'd expect to see out of a minor-league team called the Shenandoah Valley River Hillz Mountain Blazt Dogz rather than a defending Final Four team, but apparently the players liked them, and I figured I'd get some hilarious player comments and some hilarious fan feedback after Mason kept its gold-jerseyed winning streak going. Well, Mason lost. And here was the fan feedback:

See, gold uniforms. (George Mason)

Sports Bog: What do you think about the new gold jerseys?

Mason senior Mike Frasnelli: Honestly, I didn't really notice, I'm just here to see the team win and kick some butt.

Sports Bog: [Trying to figure out how he didn't notice] Were you at Mason last year?

Mike Frasnelli: Yeah.

Sports Bog: [grasping at straws] So you're not really a diehard fan?

Mike Frasnelli: I'm a diehard fan, and I love them, but I'm not diehard enough to say the uniforms are helping us. I'm not a color person....I notice if Folarin Campbell's jump shot is falling.

Mason sophomore Kelly Morris: I noticed. I'm a girl, you're a guy. You probably don't notice the uniforms. Guys notice what they do, girls notice what they wear.

Right about this time I sort of decided I wouldn't be writing about Mason's new uniforms.
