  1. Just seeing this on TV for the first time. It's jarring, but I think it works. And seems more versatile. Didn't realize it was announced so long ago. I feel like they've recently shifted slightly away from the original (?) monster mashup movies and started showing more mainstream films in their genre. Why yes, I am watching a "Resident Evil" movie right now, why do you ask?
  2. So that story says it's the 27th team. Who's left? I've lost track. Denver...
  3. I can tell you as a lifelong Cowboys fan (no bandwagon) I bought a navy blue Starter parka and what we would now call "dark royal" (by New Era standards) Sports Specialties adjustable cap in 1989. (Record: 1-15) It was ridiculously frustrating to find merchandise that matched because you never knew what shade of blue you were going to get: Some manufacturers used royal, some dark royal, some navy. So when that shark-tooth Logo Athletic cap came out, I had to pass because it was royal and didn't match my navy parka. Or, I eventually justified it because it matched the blue in my white Dorsett jersey. (Yep, the latter. I'm not proud.) I often wished they'd pick a blue, and I eventually chose navy. In 2000, my first visit to Texas Stadium, there were three choices of a simple universal (stretch) fit Nike cap with just the double-star logo (many '90s caps had one outline on the star, another frustration for another TL;DR ramble): Royal White Navy It was the first time I remember seeing the same model of cap in two blues. And I bought two of the three. The two that matched the navy jersey. And then proceeded to wear mismatched blues to my first Cowboys game in Irving. Because I wasn't not going to wear the Dorsett jersey. First world problems. When the new stadium changed the endzones to navy, I thought they'd finally chosen, too. But no.
  4. A few years back? Tex died in 2003! Navy is the Cowboys' best uniform. The stars, the matching silver pants, it matches the navy endzone and a lot more in the "new" stadium, etc. The white has nostalgia, but has become a mess.
  5. Perhaps "suggests a B" is more accurate. The curves of the same-color streak at the very least do that, and the negative space created is essentially that of a B.
  6. Fuhrms referenced it above, but in the two new alt logos emphasizing the D, they turned one into a B and the other into a C.
  7. Black Panther teaser trailer dropped last night:
  8. But add it to the "history in an unfortunate jersey" list. Not only camo but that Reds script instead of the classic C-Reds logo. And camo.
  9. For the people saying the Wrigley view was tarnished by the scoreboards, I submit that the damage was done decades earlier when the lawn chairs and coolers of beer on the rooftops were replaced by complex bleacher structures sold at suite prices. Not sure why those abominations often get a pass. (Still a solid neighborhood view, especially when the L passes by or if you are up high enough to see the lake.) When I was growing up, the must-play parks in video games were Kansas City for the fountains, Wrigley for the ivy and Boston for the monster. The rest were cookie cutter or the backdrop too distant (thinking mountains here). For my money the best baseball view I had as a kid was John O'Donnell Stadium (now Modern Woodmen Park). It had the river, bridges and "skyline" (tallest structure is a TV transmission tower). So PNC is No. 1 for me for taking that style to a major-league level, literally, with an honorable mention to the Reds. There are so many good ones now, from the Giants (probably my No. 2) and Cardinals to the Padres and Orioles. The Twins' park is amazing how it is tucked into downtown without giant light structures. And I even realized from this thread that I might have sold the Tigers short just because of where my seat was (RF).
  10. There was a Carl's Jr. off a Bloomington-Normal I-74 exit two decades ago in Illinois. I always thought it was pre-merger but perhaps it was a test market.
  11. Watching that trailer brings me back... to a day I thought Kingsley was going to be a badass Mandarin. I didn't hate what they did -- I laughed at the time and I still laugh at "I panicked and then I handled it" -- but what a missed opportunity. As for Snoke... I like him as much as I liked the Emperor in Empire -- not at all. (Kind of a "who the @#$% is this guy?" feeling about both... preferred Vader as the big bad, but then... whoa, lightning! I was 9.) They really need to make Snoke work -- or have Luke cut him down within the first act and move on. (Sorry, Dooku.) I'm not buying him right now as the final hurdle. Ren or Rey or Luke or Laura Dern or Boba del Toro might need to be the main villain by Ep. 9. Snoke was as disposable as Phasma to me.
  12. How do we know what Luke sounds like? It's been 34 years! Joking. I didn't think it sounded like him either. But if it's not Luke... that's a pretty nasty trailer misdirection. Is something layered in like during Rey's TFA vision and her Light/Darkness/Balance here?
  13. I look at this now and think that it's meant to be some kind of commemorative logo for the 2006 and 2011 NBA Finals.
  14. I know "Incompetent!" is the obvious choice, but I'm partial to... "The absolute worst!" *hat drop*
  15. What will you do when the first Tank costume comes knocking at your door on Halloween?
