Some suggestions for the rec colors (Now with a poll!)

I was checking out a few game threads in some of the other SB Nation boards and I noticed that in some of the sites, when a comment receives a certain number of recs, the background of the comment turns a color other than green (usually their team colors). I've heard a few people mention that it might be cool to change the colors, and so as I was watching Clippers-Nuggets, I decided to experiment and see what some of these would look like.

(NOTE: I'm very aware that some of these aren't possible, but I was on a roll.)

To make things fun, I chose a comment from about eight months ago that in hindsight, probably should not have been green. I'll be fair and add that I loved the move when it happened as well.

This is a clean, green color scheme. Great for St. Patrick's Day, good for every day in Boston; not great for the nation's capital.

These next few suggestions are brought to you courtesy of the red, white, and blue:

Two different shades of light red (also known as pink) with two different colors for thumbs. Both fit with the color scheme of the site.

We cool it down a little bit in an effort to recreate the ice water in John Wall's veins. We have now seen red, white, and blue thumbs, but why not get creative and add a John Wall smirk instead. The smile that says, "I approve of this message."

Here, the color of the background doesn't change, which is great if your computer is actually a typewriter or something. The only addition is a gray picture of John Wall from what looks to be a preseason photo shoot. This rec template wastes very little color ink if you're printing out a comment. I won't ask why you would do such a thing.

This is about as "rec" as it gets. A moment between two friends featuring high-fives and chest bumps. This says "Good job!" and it says it loud.

-----

This background says, "This comment is almost as awesome as an over-the-mascot, full-pump, two-hand-reverse jam." and that is the greatest thing a Wizards fan could ever hear other than "...the Wizards have announced that the team name will be changed back to the Washington Bullets effective immediately."
