Another jersey snafu remembered

Post  BD Sullivan on Fri Mar 30, 2012 5:12 pm

I noted this on the PFRA foum, but wanted to especially note it here:

On 9/25/66, the Redskins came to Pittsburgh with their white jerseys, assuming the Steelers would be donning their black ones. However, after realizing in pre-game warmups that the Skins were in white, Pittsburgh had to use a police escort to travel 15 miles and pick up the black jerseys. Due to this problem, the game was delayed approximately 15 minutes.

I wonder why when that happen in Minnesota in 64, they did not just delay the game a bit and get the jerseys instead of starting the game with both the Vikes and Lions in white.
