RE: Spartak shirts: that may be the worst threesome I've ever seen. Of any kind. And those "breast-plates"/extended shoulder pads are horrific. (and I actually kind of like the 3rd shirt hoops, minus the yellow)

Fugly all-around.

If I run a team with a deal with Adidas, I kill it NOW...

I know it's late notice, but can anyone help out with a place to watch the Chelsea/Arsenal game tomorrow in Chicago, preferably close to the Ukrainian Village?

I thought there was a rule that you could only change your home kit every other year?

I like the second kit, sans the breastplates. even the third kit with hoops ain't horrible, but is purple and black really necessary?
