Pink Jerseys Could Help World Cup Teams Score

Maybe USA and other soccer teams should think about switching their World Cup jerseys to pink instead.

VANCOUVER, B.C. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The tough guys playing in the 2010 World Cup could benefit from sporting pink jerseys.

Color therapy expert Susanne Murphy says all hues emit certain energies and could affect how teams play in the big soccer tournament.

She once played in a co-ed flag football league where her entire team – guys included – wore pink and they became THE team to beat.

That’s because pink carries positive, “cosmic” energy, and its red undertones help harness physical strength and endurance. Since it’s more subdued than red, it also calms.

Murphy thinks pink would help World Cup athletes be “just aggressive enough” without losing their tempers and getting tons of penalties.

She thinks too much pure red in their jerseys could lead to fights on the field because it’s such a passionate color. Instead, athletes should just wear red underwear underneath their uniforms.

For optimal focus, she recommends soccer studs go over plays in a room painted yellow prior to games.
