I Want a Pair of These Syracuse Gloves and I Want Them Now

Just when I thought Nike couldn't make us any more ridiculous stuff they go and do something like this...AND TOTALLY REDEEM THEMSELVES.

Eric White's twitter is good for many things. There's the clowning around with George McDonald. There are completely unsubtle hints about recruits on campus. There are smoke signal tweets every time SU lands a new commit. And there are looks inside the program at all of the cool new things that we are getting, between the stuff in the football wing, and now, some sweet new interlocking pattern-gloves from Nike that are all the rage right now.

There's no good reason for me to want these gloves...I haven't played organized football in six years, they're probably exorbitantly expensive, and who knows if they'll even be for sale to the general public? At the same time, if I go into Manny's when I'm up for the Clemson game and see these, there is at least a 90% chance I'm buying them.

Also, I'm very glad they went with the '44' instead of a block S or angry Otto or something like that. I'm all for keeping the 44 tradition alive in as many ways as possible.
