We’re still smarting from the Union’s first round playoff loss at the hands of the Houston Dynamo, but a week later, it’s already starting to settle in that 2011 was still a productive step toward true contention in the MLS. The Union have begun looking ahead too, both in regard to the players who will be on the field and the unis they’ll be wearing.
Tonight, Union fans got an email saying that the team will soon be unveiling new primary and secondary kits for the 2012 season. We don’t have any idea what they might look like, but they’re offering up an incentive to get the unveiling to happen sooner rather than later. As of this posting, the Union have 85,291 ‘Likes’ on Facebook. When they hit 92,012 (emphasis on the 2012), they’ll unveil the new gear.

The Union head into tonight’s second leg of the MLS Eastern Conference Semifinals (8:30/ESPN2) against the Houston Dynamo down a goal. Outscore the Dyanmo by two goals in regulation and they’ll advance to the Conference Finals. Outscore the Dynamo by one goal in regulation and they’ll force a 30 minute overtime (there is no “golden goal”). If the two teams remain tied on aggregate after the 30 minute overtime then the winner will be determined by penalty kicks.
