The Red to Victory

RedcoatNew research by scientists at Durham University in the United Kingdom suggests that there is a small but quantifiable advantage to wearing red when playing sport. The finding can, the researchers think, be extended to other competitive situations. None of which explains why our brave Red Coats lost to the revolutionary rabble mustered by this former colony...but there you go. Still it does confirm my own view that if England ever want to win a Soccer World Cup they should revert to the cool red strip they wore so successfully in 1966.
