Hawks wore blue and green throwbacks a day before the Seahawks play the Falcons

Not ideal timing!

If you watched the Atlanta Hawks game on Friday, you noticed the team was wearing blue and green throwback uniforms.

The team even changed its Twitter profile to match the color scheme.

It was a fun way to remember when the team wore those colors in the early 1970s. There was only one problem — the timing was a bit off.

The Seattle Seahawks use a very similar blue and green color scheme. And, it just so happens the Seahawks play the Atlanta Falcons in the playoffs. On Saturday. In Atlanta.

The Hawks have had the event planned for months. The matchup between the Seahawks and Falcons was only set a week ago. That didn’t keep fans from noticing the similarities.

No, the Hawks aren’t rooting for the Seahawks. No, the Hawks didn’t lose a bet with the Sonics. The colors will be back to red in no time, well before kickoff between the Falcons and Seahawks on Saturday.
