Today’s focus: Colour TV Day
Speaking as someone old enough to grow up with a Black & White TV in the house, it can be easy to forget how younger generations take for granted the ability to watch shows on so many different devices whenever they want these days. Back then, it wasn’t really a problem unless North Melbourne was playing Collingwood. For anyone unfamiliar with Australian Rules football, North Melbourne has a white jumper with blue vertical stripes, while Collingwood is black and white vertical stripes.
Or when Essendon played Richmond…
This was a large part of why the away side is required to wear white shorts. These days, clubs put much more into differentiating their away jumpers, though that is largely driven by a desire to increase merchandise sales.
Daily Trivia: The Pinky Promise originally indicated that that the person who breaks the promise must cut off their pinky finger.
