I May Not Know Football But I Know Their Colors

If you've seen the movie Steel Magnolias, you may recall the scene where Clariee is live on the radio from the football team's locker room and instead of talking about the game she wants to discuss the color of the team's purple uniforms asking the announcer if he would call their colors "grape" or "aubergine".
