Fordham University, one of only three universities in the entire city of New York, has decided to pay tribute to the workers of ground zero on September 11th with some patriotic uniforms. Back in 2001, Fordham and Columbia were supposed to square off four days after the attacks, but decided to push their rivalry back until Thanksgiving that year, and the Liberty Cup that they battle for took on much more significant meaning.
The new threads are meant to honor the alumni of both Fordham and Columbia (their rival, and opponent on Saturday) who were lost on that fateful day, as well as the members of the FDNY, NYPD, EMS, Port Authority, etc (and those acronyms will be honored on the nameplates on the back of the jerseys.
Take a look at what Fordham came up with. While the stars and stripes on the helmets has been done quite often, including the pattern in the uniforms is something that's very unique to this game.
We certainly tip our cap to this move by Fordham. Excellent idea.
