Minor League Soccer Club To Sport Uniforms Displaying Romney Campaign Logo (PHOTO)

F.C. New York, a minor league soccer club based in Long Island, isn’t accustomed to being the center of attention.  But that’s changed since the team unveiled its politically charged new uniforms.  Thanks to an anonymous donation, the club — which plays in the lower-tier National Premier Soccer League — will don jerseys bearing Mitt Romney’s name and campaign slogan, “Believe in America,” for the duration of the season.  

In a news release from the club, the donor said, “I love fútbol, I love America, I am a proud Latino-American who believes Mitt Romney needs to be our next president.”
