  1. A rant about the Seattle SuperSonics

    The Sonics are not coming back. Unless you've heard that Ok City is moving. The NBA may be coming back, and they may name the team "SuperSonics" but the original team is in Ok City and from what I've heard, they're not moving back. (Sorry, pet peeve of mine, like people who claim the Browns history includes Jim Brown and Brian Sipe, though the team they played for is now the Baltimore Ravens)
  2. Introducing the Alliance of American Football

    We had a family visiting us a few years back, and when he told us they were from Milwaukie, my grandfather said "Oh. You're from Oregon". The guy was surprised, he didn't even know there was a Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Don't even get me started on the whole Austria/Australia thing.
  3. Thank you, I don't keep up on mascots, though the Aces (before they folded) also had a polar bear named Boomer who came into being after Binky the polar bear attacked a tourist at the Anchorage zoo.
  4. What does a polar bear have to do with the Leafs? I get the rest, I just didn't know if there's a Toronto-polar bear connection I'm not familiar with. Like the Seattle Mariners and a moose.
  5. Jackie Robinson Day 2018: New Patches and Everyone is #42

    I guess this is one tribute idea the NFL will never adopt. Every player has to wear a certain number to honor him. How will the officials call penalties and who would be an eligible receiver?
  6. When I first started watching sports in the late 70's, I was confused why Seattle would play Washington, shouldn't they be friends (I was around 7 or 8 at the time). Someone had to explain to me that Washington had nothing to do with the state and was a separate city and I had been there before (which made it more embarrassing to me).
  7. What expansion teams mascot could have been.

    There were two ownership groups trying to get the Seattle NFL expansion team. The Nordstroms (Seahawks) won, but the other group would have gone with Seattle Kings.
  8. What expansion teams mascot could have been.

    You do know the Titans were not an expansion team.
  9. At least we didn't have the Capital Capitals.
  10. So if Duluth somehow got a team, the Twins should change their name?
  11. National Team Names

    New Zealand has names for all their national teams, rugby is the All Blacks, basketball (men's) is the Tall Blacks, baseball is the Diamondbacks, badminton is the Black Cocks (begin giggling now), softball is the Black Sox, and so on down the line. is this just a New Zealand thing or do other countries have names for their national teams?
  12. Baseball Hall of Fame Retires Chief Wahoo From Plaques

    Will they also remove any mention of baseball's segregation history? I think not allowing blacks to play for a time is far worse than the Wahoo hat.
  13. Welcome to the 90's

    I find it weird that I currently own a lot of the jerseys featured in this thread.
  14. Lifespan of new-age arenas

    I don't recall the specifics of the MLB contraction plans, but didn't the owners propose increasing roster size per team to make up for the teams lost?
