Description: NASL Podcast #40, with Jay Long, Brian Quarstad and Gerry Wittmann as we talk about the past weeks games in the NASL. We focus in on the 8-0 drubbing of the Carolina RailHawks by the San Antonio Scorpions by speaking to IMS correspondent, Andrew Arellano who reports from San Antonio. We also recap week #18 of the NASL season and look at the Puerto Rico Islanders as they head into CONCACAF Champions League play.
Here’s the description of the video:
“Clin d’œil à l’histoire de la ville et du club, le nouveau maillot de l’OL 2012/2013 vous réserve une première mondiale!”
What …. you don’t speak French?
Ok, Olympique Lyonnais (Lyon) has a new third jersey from adidas, and the primary design can be seen in 3D. That’s right, as in you can only see the 3D effect if you are wearing a pair of 3D glasses.
So the next time you sit down to watch Avatar in 3D, make sure you’re wearing your Lyon alternate jersey.
I wonder if when you buy the jersey, whether you also get a free pair of glasses wrapped in plastic? This will be the only way you can truly experience the $80 you just blew. If the glasses aren’t included, can you really say adidas has thought of everything. hmmm?
I can’t wait to see the fans in the crowd dawning their glasses, smoking their American cigarettes and contemplating objective reality as they watch their 3D footballers appear to be right in front of them.
Those hipsters have it all figured out!
The US and Nike announced today the official unveiling of the jersey to feature for both the Men’s and Women’s national teams. The American flag is utilized as the jersey’s inspiration, with a shirt that features horizontal red and white stripes and a blue crew neck collar.
The jersey will also feature a subtle tonal sash echoing the same design on the jerseys worn by the US during the famous victory against England in the 1950 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.
For the first time, Nike has taken a unified approach with the USA’s home kits, creating jerseys that feature the same design and concept for both teams.
So basically the current kit the US Men wear but with loud red stripes surrounding the body, in essence, creating the famed hoop design. If you’re scratching your head in confusion, I don’t blame you. I didn’t think there was too much wrong with the current jersey to begin with and now they are tinkering with the general design.
Is this simply a ploy to get you to buy more jerseys by Nike? The US has had some awful jerseys in the past, I need only reference the 1994 jersey.
The U.S. Men will debut the new kit when they face Scotland on May 26 at EverBank Field in Jacksonville, Fla. The U.S. Women will sport the new look for the first time against China on May 27 at PPL Park in Chester, Pa.
What do you think, should we just leave the jersey alone? Do you like the new design? Leave a comment and let us know what you think.
