Are you really going to tread?

The definitive list of the most American things, as declared by George Washington:

1. Whiskey
2. Bald Eagles
3. Bacon
4. Things that explode
5. Celebrities

Americans love celebrities. It doesn't matter why someone is famous; it just matters that they are famous.

So you know what's super duper American? Celebrities in United States jerseys.

The fan reaction to the new World Cup away kits has been mostly negative. Fans have lambasted the shade of blue, how similar it looks to other countries' kits and who knows what else, but that was before Andrew Luck wore the jersey. It was before Spike Lee and Diplo wore it. It was definitely before Alyson Felix, who has won gold medals for America, wore it.

Now, if you still don't like the new kits, you are flying directly in the face of the No. 5 most American thing.

Plus, look at Haim. Those are faces that do not tread.

So keep disliking the kit, just know that you are treading in doing so.
