For the first time EVER in my life, I bought a Chelsea-related product that's made entirely of non-natural fibers.  Sure, sure, I have a couple home shirts (er... jerseys) hanging in the closet.  Both were received as gifts.  Though in fairness, I would've eventually plunked down the cash for the 2008-09 home kit because, for me, that's the ultimate (modern) Chelsea home shirt.  But I digress.

My Friday night indoor team decided to switch it up for this season.  Out with the white shirts, in with the... uh... turquoise?  Let's just say that color is not exactly a staple of my wardrobe.  Orange?  Yes.  Primary colors?  Yes.  Black and gray?  You bet.  Turquoise?  Get outta here.  Plus, it's an impossible color to spell.

But, in a rather fortunate confluence of events, the Chelsea training shirts are a match for this dastardly color switcheroo on my team's part and so now I can proudly feel like a super crappy Gary Cahill (i.e. Gary Cahill on any given day HEYOOO), while I pretend to be a super awesome David Luiz.

Do you realize they charge $50 for this crap?  Come on!
