Where's Waldo?

I loved the Where's Waldo books as a kid.  It was like finding a new Highlights magazine at the Dr's office, only entire books of hidden images!  Until last Wednesday, I hadn't thought about Waldo in years.  The US Men's game against Brazil changed everything.  I turned on ESPN and saw 10 Waldo's running around the field. No, seriously.


Apparently the new jerseys were unveiled in April.  I'm all for US team gear inspired by the American Flag, but, um, how did they not see the connection?  Maybe if the shorts weren't blue it would seem less Waldo-y?  A definite rare miss from Nike. 

I'm not the only one seeing this, right?


  1. I saw part of this game and I was like 'oh, those jersey's are kind of neat'. I did not think of Waldo until now but I'm sure that's all I will see when I look at them now. Too bad they don't have the little matching striped hats.

  2. It's one of those things, once you see it you can't un-see it. Maybe they should have put stars on the shorts . . . . .

  3. sheesh! I am thinking the same as AuntBT, the shorts need WAY more stars on them!
