Kit Watch: Chicago

Addison and Clark St.

Did you know?

These fellas work at Aon, a Chicago insurance company that recently signed a shirt sponsorship deal with Manchester United. They were pretty excited. Hector (on the left) had just come from a match and Paolo was anticipating Manchester United's trip to the States.

"My favorite 2010 World Cup moment? - It's gotta be our game against Slovenia- what a fightback!! That game showed our resolve to play the whole 90 minutes!"

Kit Watch: Hoi An

Emily Hirshorn gives us images from the city of Hoi An, Vietnam
-a kit fan and a fan that has his London team seared into his being...

...a pretty good likeness!

The Ethos of the game

Orsen Welles said films were canned reality - cans of celluloid that depict reality but are not reality itself. Of course life doesn't have a running K'naan soundtrack and slow motion doesn't happen (except when you've just let slip the most delicious sandwich from your hands and you slowly watch it plummet to the floor). This moving piece nicely represents what the game is and means to millions.

Nah Mean?

Josh "Frankenstein" Eha breaks off some South Africa 2o1o knowledge for Kit Watch:

Some things I've learned:

The townships are where life is cheap but as vibrant as I have ever witnessed. They don't celebrate 4th of July, they do this EVERY SUNDAY all day long.

Braai= barbeque and impala tastes better than springbok tastes better than kuduu.

Everyone thinks the Uruguayans are cheaters and Ghana should have gone on but I know better. "That's soccer, baby."

The Nigerians here are the gangsters. Glad I didn't know that when we went out celebrating their win.

Mexicans are awesome with their sombreros and lucha libre masks.

Spain plays the most beautiful ball, thanks to Xavi and Iniesta in the middle. I hope they finish the job.

lakkar = awesome

Amarula tastes like a white russian. I did a taste test with the bartender in Outshloorn.

"I think the Korean [DPR] Army should be a star feature in Kit Watch."

Fantastic shot, Eha!

Dazed and confused...
