Here is a full look at the USMNT 2014 World Cup kit. It’s certainly a little plain, but considering some teams are going a little less traditional with their kits this season, it’s certainly not the worst.
What do you all think though?
U.S. Soccer released the 2014 Home jersey that the USMNT will be wearing in Brazil this summer.
It’s clean cut, clsssy, oh and boring. I’m not a big fan of the collar. It looks more like a Polo shirt, than a jersey to me.
What do you think? Love it? Hate it?
THERE’S ONLY ONE THING TO DO IN A CASE LIKE THIS.

ZURICH (AP) - FIFA says it imposed a worldwide lifetime ban on Lebanese referee Ali Sabbagh, who agreed to fix an April 2013 match in Singapore in exchange for sexual favors.
The Asian Football Confederation had already banned Sabbagh from refereeing and attending stadiums this month.
FIFA also extended 10-year bans on Sabbagh’s assistants, Ali Eid and Abdallah Taleb, to apply globally

Number 2 in our series of Premier League toilet paper sent by Jason Kamminga from Korea who writes:"Due to Korea’s love and loyalty to Park Ji Sung, Man United have been the most popular club in the nation. Many "authorized" products have been churned out for years. Some slightly less authorized products along with them. As a Liverpool fans, this soft-ply brings me tears of joy, and sums up David Moyes season so far. Love your podcast fellas! From Jason Kamminga. An American in Korea."
