    Is anybody going to be at the Mexico match in Phoenix? If so, hit me up and I'll buy you a beer.

    Zelalem may still be a long shot, but the US isn't giving up on him. He just recently declined an invite to join the German U-17s for European qualifying as well.

    Game watch for Mexico friendly tomorrow at Fiddle & Whistle in Marshalltown, though I don't expect anyone from here to go that I don't already know.

    They released the World Cup "road" jerseys today. First thing that comes to mind is "Russia".



    Terrible.

    Whatever happened to the traditional deep navy? We're going all red now? Ew.


    Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice?
    Maria Sharapova: Don't you beat up other guys for a living? I don't know how to answer this.

    Re: ***Official USMNT Thread***

    I personally like the away jersey's. I think FIFA has said they wanted the jersey's to be more monochromatic, hence why we get a super boring all white home jersey. I like this though, I really like the shade of blue they chose, better than navy IMO.

    Also it looks like US fans have bought a **** ton of World Cup tickets, so that's awesome.

    I prefer the navy color from our flag. Not a fan of the royal blue.

    I get what you are saying, but based on the below, i don't know if the actual blue flag color is doable. Granted this is from wikipedia. That said, I think this away jersey is awesome!
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flag_of..._States#Colors

    Colors[edit]


    The exact red, white, and blue colors to be used in the flag are specified with reference to the CAUS Standard Color Reference of America, 10th edition. Specifically, the colors are "White", "Old Glory Red", and "Old Glory Blue".[8] The CIE coordinates for the colors of the 9th edition of the Standard Color Card were formally specified in JOSA in 1946.[9] These colors form the standard for cloth, and there is no perfect way to convert them to RGB for display on screen or CMYK for printing. The "relative" coordinates in the following table were found by scaling the luminous reflectance relative to the flag’s "white".
    Name Absolute Relative

    A subdued-color flag patch, similar to style worn on the United States Army's ACU uniform. The patch is normally worn reversed on the right upper sleeve. See explanation in "Display on uniforms" section below.

    As with the design, the official colors are only officially required for flags produced for the U.S. federal government, and other colors are often used for mass-market flags, printed reproductions, and other products intended to evoke flag colors. The practice of using more saturated colors than the official cloth is not new. As Taylor, Knoche, and Granville wrote in 1950: "The color of the official wool bunting [of the blue field] is a very dark blue, but printed reproductions of the flag, as well as merchandise supposed to match the flag, present the color as a deep blue much brighter than the official wool."[11]
    Sometimes, Pantone Matching System (PMS) approximations to the flag colors are used. One set was given on the website of the U.S. embassy in London as early as 1998; the website of the U.S. embassy in Stockholm claimed in 2001 that those had been suggested by Pantone, and that the U.S. Government Printing Office preferred a different set. A third red was suggested by a California Military Department document in 2002.[12] In 2001, the Texas legislature specified that the colors of the Texas flag should be "(1) the same colors used in the United States flag; and (2) defined as numbers 193 (red) and 281 (dark blue) of the Pantone Matching System."[13]

    ^ Haha, I've actually read that wiki page before. And I agree, there isn't really one exact specified color, but the colors used on the flag are definitely darker than the blue used with this kit.
