The sports world weighs in on the colors of #TheDress
The Internet was taken by storm Thursday night by a single question: What colors are this dress?
It all started when a picture of a dress began circulating on social media, and a ferocious debate broke out. Are the colors of the dress blue and black, or gold and white? Some say the former, some say the latter, and some see a combination.
Naturally, the sports world wanted to get its say in as well, from teams to the athletes themselves. We've rounded up some of the best takes here.
