last night, i stayed up into the early hours of the morning to watch events unfold in Libya, where Colonel Muammar Gaddafi's 41-year reign seems poised to topple as the latest event in the arab spring. it's a truly amazing accomplishment, and if you're not following it, i urge you to check out al jazeera's in-depth coverage of the situation.

anyway, during the hours of footage that rolled in from Tripoli, Misrata, and Benghazi (as well as celebrations all over the world), i began to notice that many of the rebels and celebrants were wearing football jerseys from famous teams. on a lark, i screen-capped a bunch of them. obviously i don't mean to downplay the importance of the revolution, but i thought people might be interested.
