Show your colors

Gov. Chris Gregoire and six other governors have declared Friday to be College Colors Day to celebrate the start of the collegiate athletic season.

Gregoire encourages Washingtonians to show their school spirit by wearing their college colors tomorrow. Question is, will she wear University of Washington colors (she graduated in 1969) or Gonzaga’s, where she got her law degree in 1977? My suggestion? Change outfits at noon so she can honor both.

The event hasn’t gotten a lot of publicity, so I don’t really expect to see many purple-gold and crimson-gray ensembles tomorrow. And you won’t catch me wearing my school colors either. Florida’s orange and blue just look weird as office attire.
