Upheaval in New Jersey may add up to some regression for the Red Bulls

The New York Red Bulls, unfortunately, have been good for a few years now. Really good. They've gotten at least 50 points in each of the last five seasons, and in four of those five they topped 55 points. They ran into a problem last season in MVP voting because they had two players splitting ballots.

MLS's oldest rivalry will be rekindled today as United visits a remodeled Red Bulls side in New Jersey.

Any Atlantic Cup matchday is a big one for D.C. United, as there are few things in life that feel better than putting one over on your odious, dastardly, unwashed rival. This one may not have the high stakes of a playoff match or an Open Cup game, but it will be a significant litmus test for both sides.

When Hurricane Sandy hit the east coast, the rain and wind that pummeled New Jersey forced the postponement of the MLS playoff match that the New York Red Bulls were supposed to host that weekend. Even though D.C. United had finished ahead of the Red Bulls in the standings and earned the right to host the decisive second leg of the series, the first match would be moved to D.

This past week it was officially announced that Vincenzo Bernardo had opted out of his contract with Italian Serie A club Napoli and is now a free agent. For some weeks there has been speculation that the New Jersey native, who joined Napoli's primavera squad in 2006, would be coming to Major League Soccer; however, no MLS side has publically expressed a strong interest in signing the small but talented Italian-American midfielder/striker.

Two interesting but unconfirmed pieces of news in the last 12 hours. First the Rapids apparently (I didn't see it) tweeted out the following promo last night and then deleted it:
That appears to be the new home/primary jersey. Here's a close up. Pretty similar to our current jersey. The stripes have moved from the shoulders to the sides, as seems to be the new Adidas standard template.

I don't think this is a surprise after the Ciao debacle but now we know for sure.

Hey everyone, it's 1980 again! Everyone be sure to invest in Apple and IBM... and avoid New Coke at all costs...

Seriously, this was the home jersey in 1980. Add a new corporate logo and change the kit sponsor from Adidas to Nike, and there's really not that big of a difference.

Now, there's a distinct possibility that I'm going to do the exact same thing I did with last year's kit (dislike initially, grow to strongly dislike, slowly soften stance, begin to appreciate it, and, ultimately, buy a bootleg design from Turkey).
