The Seattle Seahawks will be debuting their new away unis tonight at Mile High Stadium. The only question is whether they will be white or wolf grey. This will also be Peyton Manning’s first appearance at home, so you’ll get to see him in traffic cone orange. The game kicks off at 9PM Eastern.
Yet Saturday night will also mark the coming-out party for the Seahawks’ new road uniforms. For those already drawing a blank on the team’s full new selection of uniforms, a photo gallery is embedded below.
While the team hasn’t officially announced which threads it will be sporting in the Mile-High City, one would guess fans will be treated to the team’s new, white uniforms for the first time (the second preseason game hardly seems the time to bust out Seattle’s “wolf-grey” alternates).
IndyCar’s Panther Racing will be donning a 49ers color scheme for the GoPro Indy Grand Prix of Sonoma this year in a nod to one of its founding partners, Jim Harbaugh.
Did you know that Panther Racing’s primary IZOD IndyCar Series entry has been No. 4 since its inception as a tribute to founding partner Jim Harbaugh, who wore the jersey number for the majority of his college and NFL playing career?
For the Aug. 24-26 GoPro Indy Grand Prix of Sonoma, the National Guard car will carry a San Francisco 49ers livery as a tribute to the team’s head coach. It just so happens that driver JR Hildebrand of nearby Sausalito, Calif., is a lifelong 49ers fan. Hildebrand, Panther Racing owner John Barnes, the team’s pit crew and select soldiers from the National Guard will take the car to the 49ers training facility in Santa Clara on Aug. 23.
