Ramsey Explains Mariachi-Themed Outfit
Before Ramsey led the Rams to a 34-24 home victory over the defending Super Bowl champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers, one thing stood out: his outfit.
Ramsey wore a flashy royal blue and yellow suit resembling Ram colors, inspired by the “Mariachi Rams,” a Spanish musical group known for performing their songs before and during Ram home games. Seeing them perform during his third home game as a member of the Rams was “super cool to me,” according to Ramsey. ”
“When they started playing, the whole crowd got hyped up and excited,” Ramsey said in the video. “That was something that stayed with me for a long time.” This year, I was reminded of that, of all the excitement all over again. ”
Ramsey then mentioned a preseason game where the “Mariachi Rams” performed, recalling how enthralled the audience became once the band began to use their instruments and vocal chords. Before the Bucs’ victory, it was that game that inspired his gameday attire. “The crowd went crazy,” Ramsey said.
“The next day, I talk to the powers that be and ask, ‘Hey, is there any chance I could get one of the mariachi band’s suits or meet them in some way?’ ‘And then something happened, and they made it happen for me.’ ”
Through his themed-outfit, Ramsey confirmed that he wanted to “be more of a part” of L.A.’s strong Hispanic representation.
Before the game, Ramsey’s boots were emblazoned with “Mariachi Rams” and “Cinco No. 5”. Ramsey then revealed his outfit to the rest of the band, who were all enthusiastic about it. Ramsey’s encounter and brief autograph session with the fan at the traffic stop can be seen at the 3:20 mark of the video. The full video is embedded below. Clean Bowled News
