HATE WEEK 2015: It Just Makes Fashion Sense

New, 28 comments

Let's get one thing straight: I hate Florida. It's not just a simple dislike, a harmonious discord, or even a deep, latent enmity. I hate Florida with the fire of a thousand suns being fueled by the fire of an additional thousand suns. In a world where my choices were to cheer for Florida or go blind, I'd start learning Braille. Most of the time, however, I am (relatively) civil while expressing this intense Gator hatred. For one week a year, though, I allow my hate to come out of the closet and be displayed in its raw, unfiltered form. This is that week.

Even when sopping wet and standing in the rain, you just can't make red and black look bad.

Good afternoon, dawg fans! Your HATE WEEK chronicle continues today with a very important, vital info on why you should hate Florida Gators with the fire of a thousand suns being fueled by the fire of an additional thousand suns. Our Dawg Sports poet laureate, Ms. Cherokee's Grip, has been giving her usual masterclass in Gator hate. (I'm still humming "Zip-a-dee-foot-baw" in my head.)  She's been doing an amazing job, and the rest of y'all have been doing a great job of contributing in the comments of these articles, as well. Keep the hate flowin', y'all!  Today, I want to stoke the fires by which we will be illuminating our Saurian scorn by appealing to your fashion sense:

Reason #5,762 why we hate the Florida Gators: Orange is Ugly, and is Even Uglier When Paired with Blue

Really, this point should be self-explanatory.  Red is a classy color; a power color. When paired with black, it becomes even more beautiful and more fashionable:

Orange, however, is loud.  It is an affront to the senses. It is everything that red is not when it comes to class and style.  When orange is combined with blue, the ultimate insult to one's visual acuity is completed.

What is the primary color of a holiday devoted to warding off misanthropic ghouls and villians by bribing them with candy? Orange. What is the color associated with the BCS/Playoff/"Access"/whatever-they-call-it-now Bowl that perennially hosts the worst teams?  Orange.

Do the world a favor; reject everything that is orange, as I do.  And do it this week by rejecting the Florida Gators.

Go Dawgs!  Beat Florida!
