The Miami Heat debuted a new jersey, and it might not fly off the shelves on the merchandise stands.

The Heat’s new mustard yellow jerseys are drawing the wrong kind of attention online. They are creating plenty of memes and one-liner jokes in the process due to the new direction on color choice.

The new jerseys generated a stir, the “Earned Edition” as it is called. Needless to say, people are having a lot of fun with this one.

Miami Herald’s Anthony Chiang tweeted on Wednesday:

“Heat’s Michael McCullough said in Nov. of Earned Edition uniforms: ‘We’ve taken a color that we haven’t used a lot of and haven’t focused on a lot, and created something that we’re really excited about for Earned.’”

That was a positive spin on things. Other fans have taken to photo shopping players’ heads onto mustard bottles. You can check out a variety of responses below.

Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News opened the door for a new opportunity for Jenkins. With a history in finance, he broke into the journalism game by writing on blogs and other freelance websites before branching into sports and entertainment news. Being in tune with pop culture doesn't mean it has to make sense, but he tries. Favorite bands include any group from Seattle who formed between 1991 and 1999. 5 Ozzfests under his belt and 12 Warped Tours, but his last concert was a bluegrass AC/DC cover band that was not 100% terrible.
