Correct~!

That was an amazing play. The Niners were throwing blocks on the Vikings as he was motorin down the field but the best part was when he threw the ball up into the stands after the play was over, and then his teammates caught up to him and his body language went from ecstatically happy to... "huh? whut?!"

He was a great player, though. It's sad that's the signature play of his career.

I'm color-blind... or... color vision deficient. What looks like the same color to some people doesn't look like the same color to me. The orange of Texas is totally and completely different than the orange of Tennessee to me. :)

I was going off which uniforms are the least distinctive. Notre Dame could be confused with Army or BC. Penn State is pretty bland, too.
