Deep breaths everyone. Deep breaths.
In this hot-take, viral climate, everyone expected to have an opinion, an instant reaction. Nuance has left the discourse, as those with the most popular podcasts that are also simulcast on YouTube like to tell us (do these people realise they are the discourse and have more viewers/listeners than all of the old print/network/cable media combined?).
But I have yet to formulate all my thoughts about Inter’s supposed third-kit for next season, which leaked today on Footy Headlines.
And you know me, I am nothing if not a kit expert. A strip savant, if you will.
But I don’t know. I just can’t formulate the words.
I like it. Do I?
I hate it. Do I?
I don’t know. Something feels, umm, off. But I can’t quite figure it out. It has all the elements I like: A block, base colour — arctic white; club blue; overall funkiness.
It feels like I’m supposed to think it’s good. That it should vault to the top of my 2020-21 rankings. That in my dumb pop culture reference rating system I should think of it as The White Album or Citizen Kane or Laura Dern in Jurassic Park. But I’m not sure. Maybe I need a second, third or fourth viewing to appreciate the nuance. We will see.
