Thrown to the Wayside

Ok people, obviously, writing a men's soccer blog and women's soccer blog was a task that wasn't impossible, but it doesn't look like its going to happen anytime soon. After the World Cup, my interest in Men's soccer has kind of dwindled. I still watch from time to time, but I've realized that my passion when it comes to soccer, is the Women's game. Some of you might say "Right on!" Some of you might say "What the F***?" and some of you might not really care. But, whether you agree with my preference or not, that's just the way it is. However, I might keep this blog around, just so that I have the ability to write a little something here or there if I'd like. Otherwise, I'll catch you on Just Another Soccer Fan. I suggest you convert, you'd be surprised how much you'll end up liking it.

Until then everyone!


Vietnam War: M69 Flak Vest

My next thing I'll Show you from my Vietnam War collection is my M69 Flak vest, these things are pretty hard to come by and Im really happy that I have one!

The vest is slightly small on me, but I can put it on if I wanted to, I think its a size small, I fit into a large or medium. I bought this on ebay for about 50 bucks, which isn't too bad as these usually go for about 75$ +. These vests were designed to stop shrapnel from grenades and from artillery shells and other such explosives. And also some small arms fire sometimes. Im not really sure how well they work, but they were widely used in the war. This thing is the real deal, its heavy and all that too. It has strings on the side for adjusting the size, a zipper and buttons on the front, grenade hangers , 2 pockets, and a thick protective collar. The tag on the vest basically you how to care and clean the vest.

So that's all for today's post! Thank you for reading! For you womens soccer fans out there, the championship game is tomorrow! FC Gold pride vs Philly! I'm rooting for FCGP on this one, as I am a Washington Freedom fan and I really dont wanna see the team that knocked us out of the playoffs win it all! So thanks for reading and go FCGP!

Club de Regatas Vasco da Gama fantasy kits

Full name: Club de Regatas Vasco da Gama
City: Rio de Janeiro
League: Campeonato Brasileiro Série A
Stadium: Estádio São Januário
Fouded: 1898
Shirt sponsor: Eletrobras, Ale
Kit manufacturer: Penalty

Finaly the long waited (and lots of time spent for it) CR Vasco da Gama kits. This is my first design for the brand Penalty, so the research was a bit longer then usual. One nice surprise was when I find out that Igor Cavalera, the former drummer from Sepultura (one of my favorite band in the past) is working with Penalty and make designs for some Brazilian clubs. In this case he designed the third kit for Vasco. The home kit is all black with a white diagonal band on the shirt. The red colour is also present (the numbers and thin stripes and trims). The number on the front is present on the lower part of the shirt instead of the shorts. I changed the main sponsor's logo (left out the green-blue-yellow logo) to avoid too many colours on the shirt. I kept the blue for Eletrobras and also for the Ale logos from the shoulders.
The away kit is all white with black bands. The red colour is present on the cross and numbers. The thin stripes and trims are gray.
The third kit with this colour scheme is not very useful but as I saw in South American leagues (and Mexican also) the meaning of the third kit is different than in European leagues. Lots of teams have more kits in the same colour scheme. So I made the third kit white and black. On the left shoulder is a big red cross, the crest of the club. This feature is present on the back of the socks also. Otherwise the design is simple, only a thin line on the sides and lower part of the back of the shirt and shorts. The numbers, logos and name are black. No other colour besides black, red and white is present. I hope Igor Cavalera will be proud of me if he will see my designs :)
