    College Basketball 2018-19

    Yes, UNCW is generally outfitted with recolored NBA templates. Their other unis are the Wizards' blue alts with a slightly higher yoke.

    Safeco Field is now T-Mobile Park

    Good thing the Seahawks don't play there; WRs would hate to play in a place with lots of drops and poor reception. (ducks)

    New Bank of America logo

    The new logo is cleaner. But I suspect that the old logo was intended to depict dimension that supports multiple readings: rolling pastures and farmland; intersecting roads; a woven tapestry; etc. The flatness of the new logo sacrifices those connotations for the sake of visual clarity. A fine tradeoff, I suppose, but a tradeoff nonetheless.

    I wonder how a Hawks jersey with Saints colors will go over with Falcons fans.

    I called it...kinda.

    They mean "trademark reasons," of course. SanMar Corp. appears to own the registered trademark "DISTRICT" for use with "apparel, namely tee shirts, polo shirts, long sleeve shirts, and uniforms; fleece outerwear, namely long sleeve shirts, athletic apparel, namely shirts." (Reg. No. 3283548). American Nevada Holdings owns the registered trademark "THE DISTRICT" for use with "entertainment services in the nature of arranging and conducting special events featuring contests and sports tournaments." (Reg. No. 3182193). There may be others with competing/confusing trademark rights as well. I'm sure the Wizards could've negotiated a consent agreement with SanMar -- it's unlikely that any consumer would confuse an NBA team's uniform with SanMar's offerings -- but SanMar might've charged them a few bucks to do so. So, they probably figured that they're better off going with the cheaper route. And, they get the side benefit of setting the record for "most characters on the front of an NBA jersey." (Of course, the Wizards' GM seems set on setting the record for "most characters wearing an NBA jersey," but I digress)

    To be fair, visiting the Mall and the various memorials at night is absolutely a thing in DC -- and not just for tourists. The Lincoln Memorial and Jefferson Memorial in particular are both popular date night spots for evening walks.

    I get it (I guess the lack of emoji made it seem like I wasn't in on the joke), but most teams would just go with #19.

    It's rare that you see a jersey with different # on the front and the back. Other than that, I think Denver's city unis look great. They're in sore need of arm trim, but that's about it. They have much more character than the drab permanent icon/assoc. unis. It's almost like the Nugs want their "main" unis to be drab, in order to drive fans to buy their more daring (and limited edition) alt unis.

    Whoa. Pockets!? The lack of pockets is the 2nd-biggest reason why I stopped buying swingmans (the first being price). I might set aside a few bucks to buy a pair this year. ?

    NBA Changes 2018-19

    Actually, I think that might be a graphical error -- that else, or a design choice by Nike that's specific to their swingman replicas. Here's a pic of new Wizards rookie Troy Brown, taken during his official photo shoot. The shorts still have the dc logo.

    Are the Wizards removing the "dc" from the front of the shorts? ? On Fanatics.com: This listing is for the "Washington Wizards Nike Icon Swingman Basketball Shorts – Red": This listing is for the "Washington Wizards Nike 2018/19 Icon Edition Swingman Shorts - Red":

    I like that OKC wordmark -- but is that black and not navy? ? If black: why not go with navy?

    U.S. Space Force Logo Vote

    Like that matters. This is a revenue grab. MAGA hats sold despite spending zero effort on the design. A shirt or cap with one of these logos will sell like *hotcakes*. On a related note: a few folks have apparently rushed to the USPTO to file "intent-to-use" applications to register "SPACE FORCE" as a trademark. I'd be surprised if any of them succeed.
