The Emperors' New Clothes, Part II - No Glove...

Follwing up on yesterday's unveil, Nike's website has this to say about the Packers's new uniforms:
The Green Bay Packers have chosen to stay with their traditional design aesthetic as well as their former uniform fabrication for the coming season. In addition to serving as the Packers on-field supplier for uniforms, sideline apparel, practice wear and baselayer, Nike will provide both men’s and women’s fan wear apparel. Athletes will now also be able to wear the Nike Vapor Jet 2.0 Glove featuring the interlocking team logo on the palms.
Here's a picture of the gloves (which were unveiled back in January):

That mugging-for-the-camera hand gesture is going to get very old very fast.
