* There are some anime fans who will get very annoyed if you refer to what they are watching as "cartoons"... then again, considering [[AnimationAgeGhetto the stigma of the word "cartoon"]]. "Anime" in this context is a shortening of ''animeeshon,'' the Japanese pronunciation of "animation." And the French ''animé'' more literally just means "animated."

** The flag of the city of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania is a black-gold-black tricolor. The NFL's Pittsburgh Steelers[[note]]Pirates from 1933-1939, when it was common for NFL teams to share names with their MLB counterparts[[/note]] have worn the colors since their inception[[note]]except for the two seasons during WorldWarII when they merged operations with the Eagles in 1943 and the Cardinals in 1944, and the merged teams wore those uniforms instead of the Steelers'[[/note]]; MLB's Pirates joined them in 1948, and the NHL's Penguins joined them in 1980[[note]]riding the coattails of the Pirates' and Steelers' championships[[/note]], much to the consternation of the Boston Bruins, who also wear black and gold. The Penguins defended their change by citing the NHL Pirates (1925-30), who wore the colors for their first three seasons, at a time when the Bruins wore brown.
*** And then the Penguins switched from yellow "gold" to a metallic "Vegas gold" in 2002[[note]]Vegas gold was first used on their alternate jersey introduced in 2000, but didn't replace the other gold as their official team color until 2002[[/note]].
