Gray is a terrible color that Vanderbilt sports teams should not wear

Fine. Let’s throw the gauntlet down. This needs to end.

WARNING: IF YOU ARE UNDER THE AGE OF 25, YOUR RESPONSE TO THIS IS PROBABLY “OK, BOOMER.” YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.

Toward the end of 2019, a disturbing trend began to overtake first the football team, and now the women’s basketball team. It is only a matter of time before it claims all of the athletic teams at Vanderbilt.

No, I am not talking about losing. I am talking about this.

This is an abomination. It is a crime against humanity, or at least against this blog. There is a reason why this blog is called “Anchor of Gold” rather than “Anchor of Gray.” Because Vanderbilt’s colors are black and gold. There is no gray anywhere in there.

Look, we get it, because you’re the same people who occasionally decide to call for a “White-Out” which is also weird because white isn’t black or gold, either. Why Vanderbilt insists on doing this, we will never know, but it must stop.

Thank you, and commence with your “OK, Boomer” takes, because I definitely don’t get it.
