Aghhh! My eyes! My eyes!! Don't even think about it adidas

In the words of a great post over at the wonderful blog Some People Are on the Pitch:

"It has recently come to our attention that Adidas, that bastion of sports apparel for so many years, has... well... how can we put it... adopted a corporate policy of giving free hallucinogenics to all its employees."

That little eyesore you see up top there is the new home uniform of the French rugby team Stade Francaise. And the one you see to the left is their third uni (apparently, the team's second uni is all pink).

Now, why does this matter? It matters because adidas is the official uniform maker of MLS and we all know about MLS's bulging pocket attitude about kit design: Change, change and more change.

So after looking at those kits up there and seeing some of the more recent designs around the world, let's just say that, while I'm not panicking just yet, for those of us here in Houston who have lived through rainbow jerseys and hoop uniforms that look like someone scribbled marker down their fronts, we know not to ignore the warning signs.
