WILD THING: The Univ. of Arizona football team yesterday “unveiled the Wildcats' new Nike uniforms" for the '13 season. The updated jerseys “feature ombre jersey numbers in the school's traditional Cardinal, Navy and White.” Nike has “produced jerseys and pants in all three of those colors to suit various uniform combinations, complemented by Cardinal, Navy, White and Copper helmets” (AZCENTRAL.com, 5/6).
I CAN SEE CLEARLY NOW: In Detroit, Brian Manzullo noted Lions draftee DE Ziggy Ansah “received a letter from IMAX … offering him to watch all 3D IMAX movies for free for the next year.” The offer comes after Ansah wore his “lensless 3D glasses” during the NFL Draft as he took the stage as the Lions’ first-round pick (FREEP.com, 5/3). The Lions also are “offering a free replica pair of Ansah's glasses with every purchase of his jersey from their online store” (ESPN.com, 5/6).
