Bronx, N.Y. (September 19, 2013) – The Fordham University football squad will unveil special uniforms for their annual Liberty Cup battle with Columbia which will occur on Saturday, September 21, on Fordham’s Jack Coffey Field. The uniform numbers will feature the stars and stripes of the American flag as will the Block F decal on the helmet. On the back, jerseys will feature NYPD, FDNY or PAPD to honor the brave members of those departments who perished on 9/11 and those who bravely worked at Ground Zero and continue to protect us today.
Fordham, what the fuck? Who saw this coming? First they get their first FBS win in 40 years on a miracle hail mary. Now they’re barging head first into the jersey smoke patrol game. What’s next? A top 25 ranking? A trip to the BCS championship? Who knows?
And as hot as the Maryland and the Oregon uniforms of the world are, it’s even better when it’s sexy as fuck AND for a good cause. Honoring the fallen heroes of 9/11 certainly qualifies for that. Grade: A++
