For those of you who have ever paid full price for a Threadless tee, my heart goes out. The sale kicked off last nite, and as usual things are basically $5 off, with the regular $10 tee being the value leader. You have till Monday midday to pick up your wears.
The 19th ever FIFA World Cup is starting in less than one day, and if you’re a supporter of Team USA you’ve got several reasons to be optimistic. First of which is the squad’s performance in last summer’s Confederation Cup, but not to be overlooked is this year’s favorable draw. In 2006 USA was drawn into perhaps the tournament’s toughest group, along with Ghana, Czech Republic, and eventual champions Italy, but in 2010 the grouping is much kinder with the inclusion of Algeria and Slovenia alongside powerhouse England. If things go to plan we could see a June 27th clash between United States and Germany in Bloomfontein during the knock-out stage.
If you are thinking about picking up the official USA replica jersey, consider acting quickly as the away jersey is already completely sold out online.
The 2010 World Cup is less than two days away, and if you don’t know who Sulley Muntari is, you had better be familiar with Lionel Messi, easily one of the top 5 players in the tournament, you want to see the new t-shirt from Messi? See it here. Alternate Kits offers a non-traditional take on the supporter’s t-shirt, freely utilizing puns and making ample use of hyperbole, all at a much lower price than the typical soccer jersey.
