Pittsburgh Steelers' hideous throwback uniforms are coming Sunday

Steel yourself -- the Steelers' prisoner-slash-bumblee throwback uniforms are coming Sunday

Blog Photo - Pittsburgh Steelers' hideous throwback uniforms are coming SundayThe most brutal hits the Pittsburgh Steelers make this Sunday will be on America's collective eyeballs. This Sunday's Steelers-Redskins game is the game in which the Steelers will wear those sensationally unattractive throwback uniforms, the uniforms NBC Sports dubbed as "the worst ever for any NFL team".

Somewhere, the Tennessee Titans' uniform designer is feeling just a little bit better about him or herself today.

Yes, the Pittsburgh Steelers will actually wear those Hamburglar-looking 1934 throwback Steelers uniforms this Sunday when they face the Redskins at Heinz Field. These long-forgotten throwbacks are being worn as part of the Steelers 80th anniversary celebration.

According the the Steelers official web site, "The team elected to choose the 1934 season jerseys to show a unique part of Steelers’ history during their 80th season celebration, and the uniform has not been worn since that season."

You can see the uniform in full there to the left, modeled by running back Isaac Redman. In addition to the bumblebee-inspired jersey with scoreboard placards for numbers, the uniforms feature those black-and-schoolbus-yellow "HazMat tube socks"  that precisely no kids will be hoping to find this year under the Christmas tree.

How much do these Pittsburgh Steelers love their 1934 throwback uniforms? Upon seeing them, Steelers linebacker James Harrison tweeted, "There's a reason these jerseys were from 1932..... it's 2012 now though, so send them back!!!"

They're actually from 1934, but you can hardly blame a guy from experiencing dizziness or confusion upon seeing these.

The uniforms are from back in the 1930s when the Steelers were called the Pittsburgh Pirates. Apparently some stream-of-consciousness rationale equated pirates with prisoners, so the team wore old-time chain gang horizontal stripes. The franchise did not become known as the Steelers until 1940.

When the Steelers wore these uniforms in 1934, the then-Pirates went 2-10. So it's not as if these these awful things harken back to some glory days era or anything.

These uniforms will be worn again -- just in time to run your Thanksgiving appetite -- when the Steelers play the Baltimore Ravens at home on November 18.
