what’s the deal with the mint green?

A few days ago, we discussed the Mint Green Outfits being worn by the Belgian national team in the current Euro 16 association football tournament. You may recall that I felt there was something slightly untoward about grown men running around the football pitch in Mint Green Outfits.

Today Portugal faced Wales in the first semifinal in their own version of the Mint Green Outfit.  Theirs is a slightly brighter green and sports Pine Green sleeves, side stripes and socks. The commentators did observe that this was their third choice kit, and it didn’t seem to slow Portugal  down as they stepped on the Dragons pretty thoroughly and won 2-nil.

But it’s mint green, mint green everywhere, and not just on the field of sport. At the local big box store you can celebrate the latest Euro color trend with a Mint Green Extension Cord.
