Timbers Tid Bits: 2013 Kits Edition

So here's a hot topic for you guys: as I was preparing for today's TTB (which is going to be daily again from now on) I saw this little tweet from Merritt Paulson:

Finalized 2013 kits today-tough as I like current so much. Pleased still. Hopefully no leaks; if so,at least decent image unlike past leaks

So we now know that we will get a refreshed primary and secondary kit in 2013, but more than that we know that it's different enough that owner Merritt Paulson put special emphasis on his love of the current ones in his tweet meaning that there's a reasonable assumption we could see some fairly big changes.

What do you think? Any specific changes you'd make to the current kits? It's going to be tough waiting an entire year to see 'em.

Enjoy the day's news:
