In keeping with today’s theme, I would like to refer everyone to findings released this summer that show another reason the Redwings rule. According to a study carried out by British anthropologists, findings show that when opponents are evenly matched, the team or athlete wearing red is more likely to win.
The fact that they're British and don't even watch hockey allows us to accept these findings as unbiased; and while this study should in no way be interpreted as suggesting that the Wings would ever be lowered to the status of being an even match to anyone, it does serve to put one more advantage on their bench.
Red seems to be the color, across species, that signals male dominance and testosterone levels.It is an iteresting thory; but then again, when the Wings beat St. Louis tonight, you should probably realize that it’s because of the fact that Keith Tkachuk is a punk, and really has little to do with red uniforms.
