Interesting, thanks for that. That's an odd coincidence, then.

So, again correct me if I'm wrong, the three teams in New York that use those colors use them for entirely different reasons.

Mets for the throwback to the departed NY baseball teams, Islanders for the two non-NYC borough Long Island counties, and the Knicks for the colors of New York City. That just blew my mind for some reason.
