liverpool-fc

Today is certainly a day for Liverpool shirt news. First and foremost is the leak of what might be the Liverpool FC away kit for 2018-19, via Footy Headlines, a site that specializes in this sort of thing. Sometimes these leaks are ultimately proven to be fake news, but quite often they are right and only time will tell.

If this is the new Liverpool FC away kit, then it will go over well, at least with the very tiny and somewhat limited focus group that is Twitter.

by Kevin Bennett

Ballet, jazz, tap, and interpretive dance all require relatively similar costuming solutions. All are artistic, and all are athletic. Dances and productions which represent the most popular musical numbers are also likely to parallel fashion trends. Thus, buying dancewear is a quadruple-threat, if you will.

The Arsenal FC away kit has been revealed and light blue is the color of choice. The hue is somewhat similar, albeit darker, to what we usually see from Manchester City at home, or the kit worn by Barcelona last night in their win over Manchester United.

By Jake Owen

If you are not yet familiar with compression gear – where have you been living, really? – you need not worry as this is the definitive article on the topic. Compression gear is the extremely tightly fitted clothing often worn by athletes in practice or on game day. Alternatively called pressure garments, it includes t-shirts, tights, socks, sleeves or underwear and it’s often made largely from a spandex type material, a synthetic fiber renowned for its extreme elasticity, or sometimes nylon and latex.

2017-18 Liverpool FC Third Kit Released (Photos, Videos)

liverpool-fc

The 2017-18 Liverpool FC third kit was released today, and it’s getting a much reception than last year’s model. That’s fitting, as the new strip is vastly superior to 2016-17’s very troubled “toxic thunder” shirt. Of course, that’s also a very low bar to clear, as last year’s alternate shirt looked like it received its coloring from an unholy concoction of Hi-C Ecto Cooler, liquified boogers and lemon-lime Gatorade that was left out in the sun too long.

Klay Thompson, his Splash Brother Steph Curry, and the rest of the Golden State Warriors are like Hansel in the first Zoolander movie “so hot right now.” The Warriors are ahead of the pace to break the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls season wins, winning percentage record.

That Michael Jordan led team went 72-10, so this Warriors side looks very likely to finish with single digit losses on the season- unheard of! The GSW march towards hoops immortality is making them a national sensation.
