Is it just me?



I have not really had the chance to check reactions, but my first and still enduring thought is that the USMNT away shirt for World Cup 2014 screams Captain America. Not saying that is either good or bad, just that it is all I see when I look at it. Was that intentional? I am now curious. 

At the same time, I get the idea it might play on the field cooler than it looks on the invisible mannequin. In other words, I do not particularly want one, but am actually rather looking forward to seeing them in action.

And, yes, I know it is also the new USWNT shirt, but obviously the fellas have it for a fairly key event coming up.

They got the blue and the white sections mixed up on this Russian National Team jersey.

Support your National Team by buying a Bomb Pop.

Seriously though, what the hell is going on with the kit design for the World Cup? I was expecting some kits with flare given Brazil/Samba, but everything for the most part has been boring and bland.

They didn't even get the right color blue. They released this just to make their lawn tennis association home kits less controversial.
