Sounders Ready Ke$ha-Approved Third Kit

Yikes

So yeah, Seattle is dropping a third kit that appears to be created with the blood of 1000 highlighters. Didn't they see how well (or not well, actually) day-glo worked out for Chelsea? Or for Ke$ha on SNL last week? Oh well, at the very least Sounders fans with children now have a safety-conscious clothing option when sending their young ones out to play in their local street ball league.

This thing is bright, my eyes hurt looking at the photos.

I'm hoping the practice kits the galaxy used during the preseason will be their 3rd kits. I would love to have a Gold kit again for CCL.

Terrible... Absolutely terrible. I'm sure we'll be seeing these on the sales rack at Ross Dress for Less.

It's a plan to distract fans from the fact that Seattle doesn't score.

That is nothing like Timbers colors. Timbers colors appear in nature.

Memo to Seattle: Neon was cool for about 45 minutes in the late 80s or early 90s.

Brilliant on Seattle's part!

How can ANY club honestly compete against them while wearing those... things!? Distracting, disturbing, blinding and most importantly, vomit inducing. The only place it will hurt Seattle is on those close offside calls. Montero won't be able to full that off any more.

Why not just do one with retro (read: USL sounders) colors and white base?

Regardless of how ugly the kit is, this is a good thing for MLS. All the top teams in Europe/South America have third kits, it's good that the Rapids and Seattle are starting to do the same here.

At least Gatorade spills will be less noticeable,

...that and radioactive exposure.

These uniforms are great! I love the neon colors that Seattle chooses for everything. Drew Carey is the coolest soccer guy ever.

Lets all take a moment to mourn the loss of so many useful highlighters. I thought "rave" green was a terrible palate concoction for a kit. But this... revolting.

Barca had one the exact same color in 2005. I actually visited the city that color and could see them everywhere, and from several miles away! ;)
