In the WTF department, I’ve found maybe the most bizarre official MLS merchandise available. Official Team Gnomes! Sadly, there are only seven of them, and for some reason DC United has two. Lucky bastards. Prices range from $9.99 for the Earthquakes and DC United 1 Gnome to $24.99 for the Galaxy, Fire, and Crew Gnome. Well worth the money if you ask me. I expect absolutely ridiculous photographs featuring these Gnomes soon.
The official tagline of these products are “You have the jersey, the poster, even the car sticker . .. but, do you have the gnome?” GENIUS! I see that my marketing degree has been wasted. Feel free to click on each picture for a closer look.
