The Tale of the Yellow Jersey

Chennai Super Kings went with the golden yellow color for their logo (Lion, King of the Jungle) and their Jersey. Blue and Red are popular sports colors but too much of them is boring. Golden yellow really stands out and is often the color of Champions. To best appreciate this phenomenon, let us look around the sports world for evidences

  1. Brazilian National team, the most popular team in the history of international Football (soccer), wears Yellow Jersey and has won several FIFA world cups
  2. Australian National Cricket team wears yellow attire and remained a dominant force for more than a decade
  3. Yellow Jersey is given to Stage Leaders in Tour De' France
  4. "Show time" Los Angeles Lakers, the National Basketball Association power house wears Yellow Jersey
  5. Pittsburgh Steelers, New Orleans Saints, Washington Redskins and Green Bay Packers of the National Football League (American Football) wear prominent golden yellow in their attire. They have won 17 super bowls between them and also 3 of the last 5
  6. Arsenal and Chelsea, two of European Premier League's top 5 soccer teams wear Yellow Jersey in their away games
  7. Pittsburgh Penguins and Boston Bruins, two leading teams in National Hockey League wear Yellow Jerseys

A common trait of these champions is the way they play – fearless, entertaining (show time), relentless, skillful, dominating and never say die. Sounds familiar!!! Yes, this is the same trait our own Chennai Super Kings carry and deliver season after season. Go! Chennai super Kings!!!
