I’ve been a fan of Barcelona FC ever since I first saw a Nike commercial of Ronaldo (Ronaldo Luís Nazário de Lima). The commercial showed Ronaldo playing fantastic, almost as if he were dancing samba. Unfortunately that commercial was the closest I could get to watching a Barça game because at the time (mid 90’s) it was impossible to watch a Spanish soccer league game in Canada. Yet by the time I did get satellite and could watch Spanish soccer, I had become a Real Madrid supporter. How could you not cheer for them? They had the Galácticos, a team made up of the best players from around the world. Although they couldn’t win a game, they were fun to watch.
Eventually that team broke up, and I went back to cheering for Barcelona. Since then I have had the pleasure of watching great players such as Ronaldinho, Messi, and Neymar perform miracles of play. This is why I’m super excited to finally own a Barcelona FC jersey that represents my love for the team and its players. The version I have is the 2013-2014 home version made by Nike.
I bought this jersey just after the new season jersey’s had released because the older version went on sale. Besides the price I also bought this jersey because it’s the best looking version I have seen in years, with its embroidered patches, thin red and blue lines, and yellow highlights (swoosh and v-neck). Other nice touches of this jersey are the sublimation printing on the shoulders, and the fit (which is slim fit, so I recommend going up a size if you like it loose). Now that I own this jersey, I’m enthusiastic for what the future holds for Barça and wearing it with pride.
