The FAA were obligated to realease a "Notice to Airmen" whenever the Sounders would don "Electricity" for a match.
So if there is one thing I learned last night at the end-of-year Alliance "Business" meeting it is that it apparently takes two years for adidas to scour the globe to look for the most hideous color combinations of highlighter shades to use in our 3rd kits... well, that and the fact that the Sounder training staff doesn't give "happy endings" and Drew Carey likes pain killers (but who doesn't?).
What's really telling is that Joe Roth apparently has never heard of the wish amongst fans to vote on third kits, even though I seem to recall the very same subject of ugly kits came up at last year's meeting (and it is worth noting Mr. Roth repeated the same David Stern anecdote near the beginning of his podium time). In fact, whining about the awful 3rd kits started about 3 seconds after the "Electricity" bomb was dropped on us...
Well, alrighty then... so I guess this means it is time to commence dialogue about what we want to see with our third kits. Times a wasting, those pesky Portland-based adidas folks have surely already started collecting data on visually offensive pastel color combinations (I'm hearing pink "bra straps" is the opening-line favorite)
What would you like to see in our next "3rd kit"
