    Ok, I'm gonna preface all of this by stating that I LOVE Phoenix, and Chase Field... BUT. The D Backs identity makes that ball park even worse. Don't get me wrong, brick, black, and sand is a great color combination, but it just doesn't work for the D Backs. At least when they were wearing teal and purple it seemed as if it was this oasis in the middle of a sprawling and empty desert. Now, everything in their identity package just matches the surroundings. When you set up a pro franchise in a wasteland like Phoenix, Arizona, the last thing you wanna do is blend in with the surroundings. It takes what is basically a drab warehouse looking ball park by necessity that was balanced out by all of the bright colors and turns it into a Costco with a retractable roof. And even worse than all of that is now they have this absolutely terrible mish mash of colors all around the ball park. Everything from the championship banners, to the fans attire, to even some of the original architecture that was done to match the original color scheme that can't just simply be re painted, is now this awful mixture of purple, teal, brick, sand, copper, and black. Sigh. They shoulda just let the Stros keep the brick and black. Both Franchises are worse off aesthetically now than they were in 2004. Look, I know that a lot of people really love when the Astros dress like the Tigers because it reminds them of the days when they were playing on the living room carpet and somehow being even more forgettable competitively than they are right now, but I guarantee you that they'll have a lot of the same aesthetic issues at Minute Maid that plague Chase Field.

    Everybody's doing it! I was bored tonight so I decided I've give the Big 10 a try. I may do other conferences later. No letters, just symbols. Big 10 Big 12 ACC I tried to avoid using their actual logos with most of them, although some are pretty much the same (Illinois, Iowa, Wisconsin).

    for someone who got into some hot water for disclosing too much I am absolutely amazed that you haven't stopped posting...you must really love the attention to take the time to credit yourself for a design then respond back to any follow up questions with "I won't answer that". I mean if I designed something like this I'd give myself credit too. And he brought up the alt because someone asked if there were any alts. He's giving insight that we otherwise we wouldn't have. I don't see the need to complain.

    @GotPixels...Buc can speak for himself but just for the record your 300 posts don't make you supreme guardian of the threads. It's also a good idea never to assume. Sure, it's probably Stephen but who knows, maybe Jerry has a 26-year-old mistress somewhere who's always wanted to run something. Newbs... No disrespect.

    First off, while terrible is too strong, yes, I would say they didn't look as good. Additionally, though, it's worth noting a few things. Plain grey uniforms without any striping were only paired with red caps for 6 years from 1965-71. After that, the entire history of the red road caps were paired with thick red/white/navy stripes on the sleeves, collar, and pants from 1971-91. The base of those uniforms was grey for 12 years from 1971-75 and 1985-91, with powder blues in the middle from 1974-84. The red road cap absolutely pairs well with powder blues (don't take that as an endorsement of the powder blues—it's not), and it even looks better with the chunks of color on the other parts of the jersey with a grey base. A lot of that has to do with the white stripe which goes a great deal towards working with the white STL logo. But the current uniforms are much closer to the original 6 years (and thankfully so), and they don't pair nearly as well with the red cap. It's a very drab look. Of course we're all welcome to our opinions, but my point is, let's not go pretending that the 27 years in which they did wear red caps on the road were all the same—with each other or the current set. They weren't, and they aren't.

    I hope the Jags can figure things out though, because I miss the days when the Titans-Jags rivalry was something special. Now they're both just... stale. I don't know what the hell happened to the Titans.

    Interesting point on the lighting: how does their future stadium situation play into shades of purple (even if, from our understanding, the shade is not going to change)? They only have one more season in the Metrodome, and it's under that brighter roof from 2011. Then, two seasons in natural light at TCF Bank Stadium before the new place opens in 2016...which may have a retractable roof. Even though the stadium design process evidently isn't complete (a major point is that they're currently deciding what kind of retractable "element" to include in the stadium -- like a roof or wall or window), the uniform process obviously is, so whatever purple we're going to have for the next five years will have to work in whatever combo of natural and artificial light in the new stadium.

    Something that always bugged me about the current Viking's unis were those numbers. They are slab-serif, but are rounded too! I thought it always made them look child-like or not as aggresive. Give me a slab serif or san-serif (like the Bears or Steelers) but dont soften the old school slab-serif please. Just wondering if this bothered anyone like it did me.

    I'm guessing the horns will be smaller and "sharper" (which will ironically not match the new norseman) and the uniform a good idea that is ultimately ruined by nike's love for random panels and goofy patterns.

    Nice to see the Ducks bounce back and take Game 1 of the Stars series 4-0 in Dallas. (Of course I didnt actually see any of it because I've been on goddamn planes all day.) 5 of 7 points on the road trip. Just fine.

The spacefaring beings who visited our planet in antiquity shared their prophesies regarding the event with various and sundry ancient cultures. The Neolithic peoples who inhabited Japan during the Jomon period crafted earthenware figures of anthropomorphic, duck-like creatures with flames carved onto the lower half of their bodies. The walls of Pharaoh Khufu's burial chamber within the Great Pyramid of Giza are festooned with hieroglyphs that describe the consumption by flame of a large, ice-dwelling bird. The sarcophagus lid of the Mayan ruler K'inich Janaab' Pakal bears carvings of a conflagration consuming a giant waterfowl. Mere coincidence? Oh, no. Rather, these are signs of the ancient astronauts' ability to travel throughout both space and time, as well as their willingness to share with our ancient ancestors bits and pieces of the knowledge they'd gleaned during their travels. Further, findings at Machu Picchu, Baalbek, Ahu Tongariki, and Stonehenge indicate that, during paleocontact, ancient astronauts divulged that I would best you in this Glorious Tournament of Victory."

    The Abbotsford Heat and the Other BC Meth Town Team should have a two-team league and play each other every day, like when the Lake County Fielders played all their games against the Kenosha County Fielders. Costs will stay low, and precious tender Vancouver can scout the hell out of every game!

    Way to over simplify. There's also the issue of funding and teaching to tests instead of teaching knowledge. For example, Rick Scott cut $4.2 B from Florida budget. $3 B of that was just education. He took an already crap system and made it worse. That's not being ruined by everybody gets a trophy, that's being ruined by a lack of proper materials, etc. Personally, I don't feel that money is the problem with our education. It's the teachers. Because of the unions, it's almost impossible to fire a teacher, even if they are doing a bad job. Newtown High School, my hometown, gets a budget increase every year, yet the education keeps getting worse. If a budget increase is voted down and the high school doesn't get an upgrade, then the "kids are hurting." They just got a $1 million dollar greenhouse system, yet that didn't help things. As a union teacher I tend to agree. We just went through a new contract with the school board and the only thing that was brought up was salary and benefits. Not one mention was made for suggestions to have a better educational outcome for our students. A pay raise, cut or freeze does not make me a better or worse teacher. In fact, we had to take a 3.5% pay cut. I do not intend to only teach to 96.5% of my capability. Many teacher unions tend to use the battle cry that "the school system is underfunded" yet we never say what an appropriate amount of funding is. I am not saying that the teacher's union is the only part of the problem, but it is a large part of the problem.

    That's another tricky one. Look at the 1986 entry. The artist uses the bat signal from DKR, but mistakenly calls the comic Legends of the Dark Knight...which the artist accurately uses later (1989). The 1986 entry should read Batman: The Dark Knight (which includes DKR). Phew. Thanks! Geez...this is very confusing. I never knew there were so many changes.
