A Cal football helmet preview, with Chuck Muncie decals

@CalFootballEQ - Cal Football Equipment Twitter

In which we take a look at how the game helmets are put together.

If you haven't followed @calfootballEQ on Twitter yet, I have only two questions.

1) Why?

and

2) WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU?

This morning, the always under-appreciated equipment managing crew took us inside the process of game prep. Apparently, the new helmets are neither delivered by stork, nor the result of spontaneous appearance. [Glad to know that matte still follows the rules of physics and such.]

And yes, the script Cal is still there.

A previously unnoticed touch is the Block C on the fore-bumper, which is in the new "Cal Athletics" font/typeface.

And of course, the best touch of all...

Hang in there, guys. The game is almost here.
