Rams go classic for Super Bowl

Brooke McCoy, Managing Editor

Nineteen years ago, the St. Louis Rams stormed the field of Super Bowl XXXIV decked out in bright blue and yellow and took home the Lombardi Trophy. This Sunday the Rams will once again have a shot at the trophy, and they are walking out in their throwback blues.
Over the past 20 years, the Rams have worn their classic uniforms seven times, but the reason they’re wearing them this Sunday is to pay homage to the 1999 St. Louis team who wore those uniforms.

Blue has always been a base color for the Rams, but there have been several variations between navy blue, and royal blue, as well as a switch from yellow to gold.

The one element of the Rams uniform that has never changed, the use of the ram horns. The horns can be seen on the shoulders of each player, as well as on the helmet. This symbol was put into the design of the uniforms to portray the power and strength the players have, as well as representing their mascot.

Since moving back to Los Angeles in 2016, the Rams franchise has been gearing up for a completely new rebranding to be released in 2020.
While the Rams are shaking things up, the Patriots announced that they will be wearing their “lucky” white unifroms.
The Rams and the Patriots will take the field this Sunday at 6:30 p.m.
