    I always get supersticious when teams do stuff like that.
    Playerrs are not used to seeing their teammates in those colors.
    I know it does not make that big of a difference, but you know how it is.
    I was a psychology major, and we studied the effect a change of the environment can have on performance.
    Like how if you are studying for a test it actually helps you remember if yo uwear the same cloths you studied in, drink the same drink that you were drinking while studying, or wear the same cologne/perfume.
    It helps the mind remain at ease and remember every detail you went over in preparation.
    It's just new uni's dude!!! As long as we beat the Bears in them, I'm good.
    I know, it probably won't make a difference.
    I just have the "don't ever change anything if it is working well" mentality
    That is actually very, very true.
    It is well documented in psychology.
    But I would expect that they practice in the uniform combo that they would be wearing.
    Maybe this is where the rumor came from... Was practice open to the press today?

    Don't get so excited people, I have not found ANY references to this rumor.
    Not even on KFAN.com,
    I don't think there is any truth to it.
    Maybe - but I doubt it.

    Re: ALL Purple on Monday

    OK, so I finally found this rumor posted somewhere else, but it is hardly a reputable source.
    Some Sports Editor from Detroit Lakes put it in his blog last week.

    1. Well, doesn't look like yet tonight that Johan Santana is going to be dealt. Is not too bad a deal if the Twins can keep him. They'll need him to keep in a tough Central Division race which includes pitching to the potent Cleveland lineup and also the new and improved Detroit lineup which includes Miguel Cabrara. That is going to be one scaring lineup.

    2. Here's a little interesting tidbit from Viking history. With the introduction of the Viking purple pants last year, has there ever been a purple-on-purple uniform?

    Of course there has, but it's been a while. Norm Van Brocklin ordered a midquarter change of uniforms when both teams had white tops and the Vikings had their purple pants. In between the first and second quarter, Van Brocklin ordered a uniform change to the Vikings going purple tops and they were already wearing their purple pants.

    It was the only time in Viking history that the team was all purple. There is a little rumor that if the Vikes beat San Francisco, they may go all purple for the Monday night game against Chicago. Might be interesting, but if you believe in luck or karma....the Vikings lost that game they wore both pants and uni being purple in 1965. So I say...skip it...don't push karma.

    I've always hated the purple pants. Always will.

    We don't wanna see Phat Pat running around looking like Violet Beauregarde...
