Via Soccer Fiesta, we find that Nike has released the new third jersey for the US Soccer teams. I’m sorry, but pinstripes are for suits and pajamas. Not an improvement IMHO.


UPDATE: Ives has a good point:

I think the US needs to settle on one trademark uniform ala Argentina’s light blue stripes, Italy’s solid blue and Mexico’s green. As it stands, American fans often show up in a mix of red, blue and white so you never get a true sense of how many American fans make up a crowd.

It’s time to have an identity for ourselves that Nike can tweak, but the overall theme remains the same. That way when we actually, you know, win that World Cup, our colors will strike fear into the hearts of opponents and our raucous fans will be a sea of, well, to be determined. 🙂
