My Take On… #221: Does Wearing White Automatically Mean A Super Bowl Win?


Since we’re now coming down to the final countdown to Super Bowl LI, something you’ll want to notice about the Patriots is what they are wearing in the game, they are wearing white and if history is to be true, that means that the Patriots will, unfortunately, win yet another Super Bowl because 11 of the last 12 teams that have won the Super Bowl wore white, which means the Steelers in 2006 and 2009, the Colts in 2007, the Giants in 2008 and 2012, the Saints in 2010, the Ravens in 2013, the Seahawks in 2014, the Patriots in 2015, and the Broncos in 2016 all wore white when they won their Super Bowls. The only team to not wear white in the Super Bowl were the Green Bay Packers in 2011.

So, naturally, that means the Patriots are gonna win, right? I mean, wearing white automatically means you’ve won the Super Bowl, right?

Well….let’s really be honest here, it should really depend on how good the teams actually are more than what they wear and…okay, the Patriots are too good that chances are even if they don’t wear white, they’d probably win…hopefully, that isn’t true and the Falcons beat the living tar out of them but all that aside, the whole concept of wearing white jerseys to ensure a Super Bowl win may sound very stupid but honestly, if you really look at it, it’s actually a smart concept.

When you wear lighter colored or more looser materials in the heat of competition, it actually would help you out much better in the game itself while the other team would probably sweat more wearing the more heavier colors…assuming that other team hasn’t just gotten use to the fact they will be hot, they will be sweaty, and half of the teams in the NFL play outside so yeah, I really have no idea of how the whole concept of wearing white in a Super Bowl is actually beneficial other than the fact that most teams have worn white in those wins.

While fun to discuss, fans know that a Super Bowl win comes down to the play on the field, not a fashion choice. And these are two really¬†potent teams going head to head with each other so regardless of what they wear, it won’t matter, as long as it not’s a blowout like 95% of the season’s NFL games were, all will be fine on Super Bowl Sunday.
