Red = better athletes.

Okay, that's not exactly what the article says. But make sure all the "Y" fans see this. :>

BBC NEWS | Science/Nature | Reds have a sporting advantage

Wearing red can boost the prowess of competitors in sporting contests, scientists have claimed.

A report in Nature by Durham University academics suggests donning red kit increases the probability of winning physical contests in a range of sports.

The researchers claim the effect could be down to a deep-seated evolutionary response that works subconsciously to put opponents on the back foot.

Though, I'm pretty sure we all know that it isn't the color that makes us the better opponent. Scientists should study the color blue.

Y Fan: Hey, what's that sucking sound?
U Fan: Uh... probably your team.
