1999 - Alexi Lalas - Kansas City Wizards

Alexi Lalas - The Red Menace - Kansas City Wizards

Promotional min-poster, 4 x 6", sent to dealers directly from the manufacturer, for the purpose of display...
Alexi Lalas played one season in Kansas City, 1999, playing in 30 games. I purchased this item not so much for Lalas, but for the uniform.  Jeff Foxworthy has said "Have you ever seen people so ugly, you have to get someone to verify it." This uniform fits that sentiment. You will also ask someone else "did you believe what they were wearing?" Although not the worst uniform the Wizards have worm, but the matching shorts and socks do not help.

You can check out other Wizards uniforms at mlsarchives.

US Olympic Soccer

2012.03.26 - The US Men's Olympic team failed to earn a spot in the 2012 London Olympics after El-Salvador scored on a Jaime Alas shot in the 5th minute of stoppage time to earn a 3-3 tie with the US team. This is the second time since the 1976 Olympics that the Men's team did not qualify.

Brek Shea's First Kick 2012 painting

FC Dallas and US Mens National Brek Shea is giving away an original painting and his game shoes to one lucky fan in celebration of First Kick 2012, following the March 11, 2012 game v. NY Red Bull.

The contest is being run through Shea's Left Foot Studio, which has raised thousands of dollars for children's charities through art. Shea creates acrylic abstract art on canvas and wood. Shea started painting in 2010, and paints in the moment creating whatever appeals to him.
