Mad Merch: Soccer-themed garden gnomes are exactly what the world's been missing

Garden gnomes are among the scariest things known to man. Dress one in Schalke 04 gear, however, and that specter becomes as inconsistent as a Miners season. In one light, the gnome could be the creepiest part of your overgrown lawn. In another, the little guy’s cute enough to star on the Soccer Gods.

Last night, we saw that adorable side when Dieter (our gnome’s name) joined Simon and Marianela for Mad Merch. Though Paris Saint Germain and the LA Galaxy also had items in the segment, our little friend from Gelsenkirchen stole the show.
