Meet our new home jersey ladies and gentleman!
hey! found it! here. nah, it doesn't look bad at all. i actually like it.. (and for the sake of a minimum of 25 words, here's.. WOOOHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! yum.
If I'm not mistaken, those are numbers on the sleeve. Just the way that the picture is, the 1's make it look like it's half of a block M.
$199 is highway robbery for the jersey, though.
Too bad that (in addition to the $199 price tag) the site selling the jersey says it will ship on 9/1/08. How is it posted on that site but Adidas' own store only has the same 5 lame items on it? If pictures of it are already out there, shouldn't they just officially release it?
Also, the item description on that site talks about jersey numbers printed on the front and back. Are our officials jerseys going to be screenprinted rather than stitched? For $199? Hopefully that doesn't mean what it sounds like.
Ok, so now that we know that Adidas has not completely butchered the home jersey, what are we supposed to freak out about next?
