This is random but why do teams that wear yellow almost always call it gold? The Predators were "gold" (which I don't like, prefer the blue) that to me is clearly yellow. When the Lakers played in the forum instead of purple and yellow, they called it "Forum Blue and Gold". Many other teams do something similar, but show a picture of any of these team's jerseys to a preschool class and they're all (except for that one fanboy, sportsnut kid) going to say "yellow" not "gold".

I don't get it. If it's an "unmanly" thing to wear yellow, why choose it as your color in the first place? I am having a hard time seeing any other reason to call it something else. The only team that wears what I consider gold that I can think of at the moment is Vanderbilt.

Any thoughts on why many sports teams that wear yellow call it gold?

The Redskins call their colors "burgundy and gold" based on the uniforms they wore back in the 40's and 50's. The colors they wear now are more "red and yellow" but I think it's just cooler to say Burgundy and Gold!

I think the Boston Bruins refer to their colors as "Black and Yellow".

Georgia Tech is called the Yellow Jackets but their official colors are described as "old gold and white".

Lakers are definitely "Yellow"

This same thought has popped in my head before. It irked me the same way you describe it irking you. Glad Wildcats are Blue & White, so I don't have to deal with the whole "gold" situation.

The jersey's the Skins wear now (far left and middle) are "Yellow". I prefer the old style colors (far right) with a slightly darker red and a very obvious "Gold".
Whoever did the art for this needs to work on their "camel-toe"Laughing
