While the Notre Dame Fighting Irish Men’s Basketball team’s lime green uniforms don’t look so terrible on the interwebs, they are a complete eyesore on TV. The Irish debuted these “beauties” during the Big East Tournament, and are rumored to wear ‘em again when they go dancing in the NCAA Tournament. Thank God they’re not playing in Lexington. I don’t think my eyes would be able to take it live.
As bad as these jerseys may be, they aren’t the worst of all time. That distinction goes to former Mexico National Team goalkeeper, Jorge Campos. Campos played professionally from 1988-2004 in some of the most hideous monstrosities ever worn in professional sports. Just look at these things:
I guess when you’re 5 and a half feet tall, a distracting kit is necessary to play in goal.
So when you’re watching the NCAA Tournament at a bar and someone asks you if you can believe how hideous the Fighting Irish jerseys are, school them on Jorge Campos.
