Jersey Colors Determine Super Bowl Winner?

Tuesday, February 2, 2010 17:31 GMT

VANCOUVER, B.C. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The outcome of Super Bowl XLIV could be decided by the colors on the players’ backs.

According to color therapy expert Susanne Murphy, the colors of the Indianapolis Colts’ and New Orleans Saints’ jerseys will affect the big game because each hue emits a specific type of energy.

For example, the Colts’ white and blue uniforms make them fast and smart on the field.

Murphy says blue energy is tied to speed, planning, and organizing – useful for making successful plays.

The Saints’ black, gold, and white jerseys make them both quick and “mysterious” players.

Murphy says the black helps them “hide” from opponents while the gold creates a “strong, masculine energy.”

She believes both teams’ colors are fairly equal, but the combos could be even better.

The best energy for sports is found in reds and oranges, which stimulate adrenaline.

Thus, Murphy recommends players from both sides wear red skivvies under their uniforms on game day.
