So I was at Target in Jersey on Sunday, just tooling around with the missus as you do, when this guy comes walking past me with yellow & gold Galaxy kit emblazoned with Becks name and number on the back. It was a very odd moment because on one hand I wanted to tap him on the shoulder and (in a voice akin to the comic shop guy on The Simpsons) inform Johnny-come-lately that in about 6 months time (possibly less) that jersey will be well out of date. Hell, I'll bet a fiver that Beckham will never even wear the green & gold.
On the other hand I was smiling ear to ear due to the simple fact that someone was wearing an MLS kit out of market. That may not sound like much, but you rarely see someone even wearing a jersey for your local side, let alone one from another market. But maybe I have a skewed view on this as the Arc of the Covenant is easier to come by than an RBNY top.
And speaking of kits, it looks like the 2007 MLS jerseys are beginning to roll out. So for all of you kit whores out there you can now pick up those Toronto jerseys for complete set for the league (if this is you, seek help). But of course the Red Bull is still pre-order only.
