Seattle’s third jersey: Still trying to adjust my eyesight

20 04 2010

I was there the day the Seahawks busted out their rave green home jerseys at Qwest Field last season, and those were a sight to see on the normally blue-on-blue football players.

I didn’t know what the Sounders were going to do, but now that we know what their third kit looks like, electricity is a good word to use.

I think of teams in Europe with bright third jerseys (Chelsea, FC Barcelona, Everton) and I see where the inspiration could have come from. Let’s just say I’ll stick with the blue and green.

One thing I wonder about is, the team doesn’t wear the blues much, so why a third? But it will sell, most likely. And don’t forget the sunglasses when you go to a match when Seattle wears them.
