I think Philadelphia’s forthcoming MLS club will be a smash hit. A great city—scruffy but civilized, battered but proud—has already spawned a terrific fanbase in the Sons of Ben. Now, they’ve unveiled a pretty cool club name, Philadelphia Union (though I sort of wished they’d gone for an 1860s baseball aesthetic and called themselves Union of Philadelphia), and an awesome badge. I personally think all American clubs should use Revolutionary iconography, but in Philly’s case, would anything else even be appropriate? This will be the best badge in the league…until the arrival of the mighty two-headed axe.
