A Brief Rant on My USMNT Kit Design inferiority Complex
Y'all know I'm down with U.S. Soccer and all but you know there is no way in high hell that we would ever do something as interesting as having Peter Saville design our kit like England did. No. Way. This is America and for reasons unbeknown to me the mixing of high-art and high-level sport is damn near verboten.
English people however are allowed to do this sort of thing because, well they're English you see. They live in a country where Kings of Leon* were allowed to play arenas for years without aid of a stadium-rock anthem like Sex on Fire. There the line between the big & the bespoke, the obvious & the obscure is drawn in pencil not ink. Art and athletics are not mortal enemies and I appreciate that.
I also appreciate the fact that there is lady making eyes at me at the 1:00 mark. Sorry hen, but I'm taken.
*Please don't mistake the KoL reference as an attempt to put that band on the same level as Peter Saville. Was just the 1st of many bands that are (or used to be at least) tiny in the U.S. and massive in the U.K.
