The LA Rams have dropped hints suggesting a radical uniform change that will make a lot of fans happy

Los Angeles Rams

The Rams are now back in Los Angeles for the first time since the 1994, but that was just the first step in the re-birth of a franchise that will also include a state-of-the-art $1.8 billion stadium and a uniform change that is yet to be announced, but should please a lot of old fans.

With the move, the Rams are still wearing a uniform that the team never wore in Los Angeles, the blue and "true" gold combination that was adopted in 2000. This left most fans and many former players calling for switch. Unfortunately for them, it is not that easy.

Kevin Demoff, the Rams' executive vice president of football operation, announced in March that the team is indeed planning to change the uniforms, but that it won't be until they move into their new stadium in 2019. According to Demoff, it takes 2.5 years for a team to apply for a design change, get the new uniforms approved, and have the uniform and helmet companies execute the overhaul. It has only been nine months since the move to Los Angeles was approved.

Where this gets interesting is that many have assumed that the Rams would just revert back to the blue and yellow gold combination that the team wore when it was last in Los Angeles. However, some hints suggest they will turn back the clock even further.

Check out the imagery being used by the Rams at their temporary home, the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. All of the logos being used by the Rams are blue and white, without any gold, new or old.

Even the team's social media sites are using blue and white logos.

Why is this significant? There are some fans that would prefer the Rams to skip the yellow gold and go all the way back to the Roman Gabriel-era uniforms of the mid 1960s and early 1970s.

That short period of Rams uniform history (1964-1972) saw the team wear just blue and white, with no gold at all.

In fact, the Rams rarely wore their blue jerseys, choosing instead to wear their white jerseys at home, while also wearin white on the road since most teams prefer their non-white jerseys for home games.

Interestingly, much like that era, the Rams are wearing white jerseys during home games.

In addition to all of the blue and white hints from the Rams, there was also an ESPN report earlier this year that the Rams would actually wear their blue and white throwbacks in the first game back in Los Angeles, a preseason game against the Dallas Cowboys in August.

Strangely, the Rams did not wear throwbacks for that game and no announcement was ever made as to why.

The Rams did not respond to a request for comment on the ESPN report, the other logos being used, or the Rams' uniform plans.

Bill Murray is liable to show up just about anywhere.

The comedy legend, who's made a habit of crashing occasions that then show up online, made a surprise appearance at the White House press briefing room, according to NBC News.

Murray was dressed in full Chicago Cubs gear to support his team in the playoffs, and was on his way to meet President Barack Obama.

He even offered a little baseball prediction, saying he thinks things will go his way for the Cubs because.

"We got too many sticks," he said, referring to the Cubs offense.

The actor was in Washington, DC, to accept the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor on Sunday, but NBC News reports he got there early to talk with the president.

We have a feeling the Cubs came up in conversation.

These amazing photos show how American women took over the workforce during WWII and changed the face of US labor

We Can Do It! Rosie the Riveter"We can do it!"

That's the slogan that appeared alongside fictional icon "Rosie the Riveter" during the famous WWII-era advertising campaign targeted toward American women on the home front.

"Rosie" was just one part of the US propaganda effort to encourage women to take on traditionally male-dominated occupations — especially in the field of war supply production — as mass conscription depleted the workforce.

The message took hold. By 1945, almost one out of four married women worked outside the home, according to However, once peace was restored, many women found themselves ousted from their wartime jobs.

Here are pictures of some of the real life women who helped make the war effort possible, all taken from 1941 to 1943. These images and captions are all courtesy of the Library of Congress.
