May I have your Attention Please?

If you're in the Deep South, specifically in an area where there's an Academy Sports+Outdoors, and you have a hankering for soccer jerseys, then I would highly suggest you visit your local Academy. Why you ask? Well, Academy currently has their entire stock of Team Mexico-themed Adidas merchandise for $4.88. That's right. Everything. T-shirts, shorts, warm-ups, and incredibly, both the home and away jerseys, which as we all know have an MSRP of around $60. I picked up a home jersey yesterday and giggled all the way out of the store, wondering if someone was going to arrest me for this steal of a deal. The jerseys in question you ask?

Home and Away.

You will now rejoin the regularly scheduled nit-picking already in progress.

If you have an Adidas outlet near you I have spied quite a few soccer jerseys there. Not much of a soccer fan but I know the ones I have been in the last few weeks have had Mexico, Spain, Argentina and a few others. Less than $10, also you can find some great cool unique stuff in the "Sample" box. But unless you are a medium most won't fit. It really depends on your location though.

Without trying to start something let me just say that the feeling is not reciprocal, we dont consider the u.s our biggest rival.

Granted for the past decade the whole thing has been one sided but we still like to believe we're the #3 team in America and if you really want to rile up a Mexican give him a match against Argentina or Brazil.

Hell I'm wearing a Team U.S track jacket right now simply because its stylish.

Great find by the way, though I wouldnt go near the Adidas stuff. I dont like either Nike or Adidas but at least for '06 Nike tried to provide unique fashions for each of their teams, the Mexico top with the white stripe on the chest remains my favourite. Then came Adidas and its welcome to template-ville

edit: I guess it can more accurately be called a chevron than a stripe

Went today to our local Academy, and it was cleaned out. Only thing left is another green jersey, my size of course. I *should* have bought that away jersey whilst I have a chance. Ah well, I'll wait 2 years for their new shipment of Mexico gear to get sold for $5 again. :P
