We're still smarting from the Union's first round playoff loss at the hands of the Houston Dynamo, but a week later, it's already starting to settle in that 2011 was still a productive step toward true contention in the MLS. The Union have begun looking ahead too, both in regard to the players who will be on the field and the unis they'll be wearing.
Tonight, Union fans got an email saying that the team will soon be unveiling new primary and secondary kits for the 2012 season.
We don't have any idea what they might look like, but they're offering up an incentive to get the unveiling to happen sooner rather than later. As of this posting, the Union have 85,291 'Likes' on Facebook. When they hit 92,012 (emphasis on the 2012), they'll unveil the new gear.
So there ya have it. If by some stretch you're a Union fan on the Social Network and not already BFF on FB, they're looking for your like.
Anything you're hoping for in the new kits? I'm pretty partial to the current blues, never liked the soon-abandoned golds, and thought the whites were OK for special occasions. Will be interesting to see what comes next.
