26 August – Day of the Green Tsunami

This coming 26 August marks Palmeiras’ 98th birthday. Ever since 2006, and as a result of an initiative by Marcelo Santa Vicca, palmeirenses commemorate the day by wearing their team jerseys in numbers so impressive that the phenomena has become known as The Green Tsunami, O Tsunami Verde.

Anything Palmeiras not only encourages you to take part in the commemoration, but also to send in your picture! In order to narrow it down a bit and go with the international spirit of this blog, the picture should be snapped abroad, i.e. outside of Brazil, and of course on the 26 August 2012. The motif could be you, your friends, your family, anyone anywhere… Just make sure everyone’s in their Palmeiras jerseys!

E-mail your picture – digital (not scanned), non-edited, snapped on the 26 of August 2012 (date visible either on the picture or contained/tagged within the picture) – to anything.palmeiras@gmail.com together with your name and the name of the city where the picture was taken. All contributions that comply with the above specifications will be posted on the blog!

Speaking of jerseys: Palmeiras/Adidas launched their first and second uniform 2012/2013 in May, but Anything Palmeiras failed by not providing info on the happening. Well, no crying over spilled milk: to your right enjoy a glimpse of the brand new third jersey of the season, launched today, which will be used against Santos tomorrow Saturday. And below, a few pictures of the current first and second jerseys, in addition to some training outfits.
