Well, while most were watching the US-England game. Folks up in Seattle decided to announce a partnership between Microsoft/XBOX 360 and MLS expansion side Seattle Sounders FC.

As you can see from the mock up of the jersey, it should look pretty cool. Thankfully it won’t look a thing like the rumored one I posted a week ago on here (I know several of you hated it, with good reason too).

It makes me laugh a bit though that a photo was released about this kit and had a different sponsor on it earlier this week. Jones Soda Company was that apparent sponsor according to MLS Rumors.

As kick-ass as that would have been, I have to say, having a company like Microsoft as a sponsor is even more kick-ass. Even though I am an Apple guy these days, I can’t shy away from the fact about having a quality gozillion-dollar company backing a club in MLS.

UPDATE: With another photo from the AP. Members of the Seattle Sounders FC administration unveil the club’s new jersey sponsorship.

    It still sucks! Nothing special, exept for the ugly light green. Better than the one that was posted recently, but still very forgetable. However, Sounders FC do have a the best sponsor on the league. If I were Microsoft I would demand a better jersey!

    Rave green, Oh well, at least its not another boring blue or white jersey. This green isn't the forest green of the Portscum Timbers so that is also good. Seattle teams are blue and green. Just wait a couple years and they'll change the jersey.
