Yesterday, although I couldn't afford it, I shelled out $30 for the new Superbowl Ball cap...after a little while, I was second guessing myself..did that store have a different one...did I like the blue colors? Was there a similar black and gold version?
What do you guys think? I bought it, it's mine now, it's the cap they were all wearing, it seems, after the game...(or was Ben wearing a different one?), I am obviously going to wear it with pride.
It's weird, a little hard to get used to..the blue color. Any thoughts?

Like I said, it's got the Steelers stitched onto the front, and it's mine now, so either way, that's it.

I wasn't a huge fan of the colors...but the cap itself I thought was a major upgrade from the 05 SB cap w/ the velcro back. Against my better judgement I bought that same hat and the on-field tshirt. They're expensive...and their are cooler looking hats/shirts out there....but I like to have them just for the sake of having them. I know, sounds weird but I like to think I'll still have these things 20 years from now and when my kid asks me about it I"ll be able to tell him a pretty sweet story

I am not a huge fan of the colors but the players wear it and so will I.

I got mine on Tuesday and it is definitely a lot better of a hat than the 05 model.

Amen Brothers. The on-field hat looks like it was designed by someone who's a SeaChicken fan and they wanted to get in a subtle dig on the Steelers.

Who was smokin what when they decided that the colors for the theme should be lime green and blue. I would think they would make some sort of neutral color that would just blend in no matter what team won the SB. Although in reality they should have just gone ahead and made the colors black and gold from the beginning since it was a given the steelers were gonna take it all.

You know I thought those hats and the logo was very similiar to the Patriots shit.

<<puts on tin foil hat>>

Tell me that crap wasnt designed at the begining of the season for the expected Patriots win?! The logo as scheme would fit perfectly with the Patriots scheme.

I think the hat is dumb. Bot those 2 colors are the official colors of the Super Bowl as a whole. Look at all the logo's, standups, ads, murals by the stadium. So i imagine the 2 colors just got carried over to the hats.

Mathwiz that hat is so much better. I think the hat is ugly and i wont wear one. If you go to NFLSHOP.com they have a lot nicer shirts than the locker room ones. Im gonna wait 2 months and i will get the official hat and shirt for cheap and just save them. I just grabbed a AFC champs hat and shirt for 25 bucks for the both of them.

I am hoping the Super Bowl colors were intended to stay away from Identifying themselves with any team but truthfully I don't like the new colors but I guess they will grow on me.

Next year we have to suffer through orange.

... oh well, we'll live.

Look at the bright side, more varying colors makes our SB Championship Logo collage look better.

i kind of like the fact that its seachicken's colors - kind of a big FU to the cry babies, they see their colors and super bowl, but then its says Steelers!

The colors are pre-determined so there's nothing you can do. Personally, anything that says Super Bowl Champions and then is followed by the Steelers logo is beautiful to me. Plus, this is one of the most confortable hats I have ever bought.

I wasn't going to buy one because of the colors....but then I got one for FREE, so I ain't complaining!!

I don't know how you can say the '05 ones are worse? I got two of those for FREE and I love the look.

Strictly a collectors item. I would wear the black and gold and let that one sit on the shelf.:hatsoff:

Only problem with that hat is- its gonna be outdated when we win 7 :helmet:
(just like the 5-time super bowl champ gear selling the past 3 years :thmbup:)
