Arsenal fan saves some money on Ozil jersey

Mesut Ozil’s move to the Emirates has Arsenal fans equally ecstatic and perplexed over Arsene Wenger’s sudden willingness to splash the cash. Ozil became the most expensive Gunner of all-time after Wenger & Co forked over $66 million to Real Madrid for the German, more than twice as much as Arsenal paid to get Jose Antonio Reyes in 2004 ($27 million).

However, some Arsenal fans clearly still value Wenger’s tendency to go the cheap route. One Gooner fan found an easy way to turn his old Arsenal kit into a brand-spanking new Ozil jersey, “on a free.” And he didn’t even forget the umlaut!

Brilliant stuff, mate.

Dortmund Unveils New Kit Using More Than 80,000 Flowers

imageKit releases are typically pretty straight-forward: A club will take a few photos of the jersey, release a small glimpse every few weeks, then has an official unveiling, revealing the new, shiny piece of fabric.

But Borussia Dortmund is not your typical club. They decided to mix things up, and pulled a jersey PR-stunt unlike anything we’ve ever seen.

In a park near Dortmund’s home stadium, the club used 80,483 flowers to form a massive version of the kit, only visible from high above ground. 

Check out the photo below to get a sense of the scale.
