This will be quick since, well, I've been suffering through another stomach flu this week and figure just one last Friday dump is in order. Ahhhh, wordplay.
This week, worldwide jersey and shoe maker, Adidas, has made some stunning headlines as it unveiled what have been routinely called some great fucking jerseys for the MLS. They really are. Apart from the fact that LA remains sponsored by a company recently adjudged to be a pyramid scheme by a Belgian court, they're really all top notch. Some of my favorites are Seattle's
And then, this happened.
Man, I love me some Zubaz. I'd wear them every day if I could. Seriously. But no. Just no.
How can a company that does so great with one sport so completely miss the mark with another? Are these assholes clowning us? Have they just performed the ultimate marketing "fuck you" to everyone who foolishly gives a shit what any sports team is wearing ever? Sure seems like it.
And if someone wants to explain how institutions of higher education can permit this kind of monstrosity to represent their schools, I'd be glad to hear it. These are premier baskethoops programs and they've basically opened the door to every sort of criticism. Rick fucking Pitino is going to coach a team wearing those jerseys. Fuck. I can't even.
