OH SNAP, BITCHES!!
The 2013 MLS season officially kicks off tomorrow. EEEEEEEEEEEEEE SO EXCITED!
And because I'm so stoked, here are the new kits:
New Primary - The hoops are made up of the season ticket holders names. Slick.
New Secondary - Bright but simple... a cool new look.
New Primary - No more sunburst. Bright orange. It's what's to be expected from Houston.
New Secondary - This could be great if done with black shorts.
New Secondary - Boldly bland... blandly bold? Also, embossed quasars at the bottom left and top right corners.
New Tertiary - Tons of awesome. A kickback to their championship '98 season.
New York Red Bulls
New Primary - No change... just bigger sponsor ad
New Tertiary - A tribute to arguably the best club in the history of American soccer, Bethlehem Steel. Pure. Effing. Class.
New Primary - Not as great as the inaugural kits (seriously, there's no beating those) but the attention to detail and the old-school V neck jersey is appropriate.
New Secondary - Ditched the special Rose City crest and instead embossed a rose over the crest. Pretty dang cool.
Seattle Sounders FC
New Primary - Dropped the duct tape bra straps, simplified, and added an embossed Space Needle. Nice touch.
New Secondary - Dude.... duuuuuude. These are sick. Great green and blue "Soundwave" stripe.
Sporting Kansas City
New Primary - Finally have a sponsor, added some dual-state flare. It's almost like they'll never need a secondary.
New Primary - Oh Canada! That is all.
Vancouver Whitecaps FC
New Primary - Awww their inaugural kit was so perfect. This isn't terrible, but just like Portland you're going to be tough-pressed to beat the original.
New Secondary - This may be intra-stadium bias, but "blah." All of the other simplified kits had some kind of nod to their city. The new Chivas secondary ditched the trademark stripes and only added the "Rebaño Angelino" seal, which further states that Guadalajara owns you. Not directly, but you get the point.
