This is sure to do two of the three things that MLS teams need to do to be successful. It keeps the hardcores happy, and it draws in the hipster crowd. Seriously, just look at that jersey, can't you just imagine walking into some indie, local, beatniks only coffee shop in Silver Lake and see the guy dispensing the legal stimulants wearing one of these? Incidentally, the third thing MLS teams need to do to be successful is draw in soccer moms and dads.  Just saying, It's a good business strategy.
