Sounders Unveil Jerseys

I just got back from Qwest (now with a real grass soccer field!), where the Sounders unveiled their jerseys.

[Note--this written before there was an image online]: I will attempt to describe them.

They are lime green, with "XBox 360 Live" across the chest in white, and a "Sounders FC" patch about where you'd put your hand to your heart.

There are sea blue accents at waist level. All told, pretty sharp-looking (I know, lime green sounds bad, but it somehow works). Soon to be available in stores, I'm sure.

Owner Joe Roth and Vulcan CEO Tod Leiweke made a big deal about how, in Microsoft, the Sounders have found the perfect sponosor. Said Leiweke: "We really could've screwed this up."

Left unsaid by Leiweke was the fact that the sponsor--which goes right across your chest, so it's a pretty big deal for the fan--wasn't going to be voted on by fans like the name was. Seattle fans surely wouldn't have wanted to be sporting "Exxon" across their fronts.

But I think everyone in the area can go along with XBox, and it's certainly a brand that's known and will help the Sounders be known around the world.

Good-looking shirts: I like the colours. Personally, I think just having Microsoft across the front would be better than the XBox 360, but they pay the big bucks so they can put what they want on them.

I love Xbox 360 Live on the chest, it is a Seattle brand and it screams youth. Love the colors, love the crest, love the beginnings of this club. Go Sounders!

Personally, I was rooting for 'Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 SP1 Beta' on the jersey, but I guess I'm just too much of a romantic.
