  1. Local TV station logos

    The TV station logos in Mid-Michigan (Bay City, Saginaw, Midland, Flint): WNEM TV 5, the CBS affiliate WJRT 12, the ABC affiliate WEYI 25, the NBC affiliate WSMH 66, the FOX affiliate WDCQ 19, the PBS channel out of Delta College in Saginaw
  2. Logos associated with failure.

    Flint's attempt at a theme park back in the 1980s. Autoworld opened on July 4, 1984, then closed six months later due to poor attendance. It was closed for good in 1994, then demolished in 1997.
  3. My first...

    MLB: Texas Rangers at Detroit Tigers, 1990 NFL: Never NBA: Never NHL: Chicago Blackhawks at Detroit Red Wings, 2009 Midwest League: Great Lakes Loons, 2007 (can't remember who they played, but Clayton Kershaw was on the mound that night) NCAA Football: Wyoming at Central Michigan, 2000 NCAA Basketball: Toledo at Central Michigan, 2000 NCAA Baseball: Kent State at Central Michigan, 2001 NCAA Hockey: Michigan State vs. Michigan at Joe Louis Arena, 1998 IHL: Flint Spirits at Saginaw Hawks, 1988 AHL: Hamilton Bulldogs at Grand Rapids Griffins, 2012 ECHL: Gwinnett Gladiators at Kalamazoo Wings, 2011 CHL: Colorado Eagles at Fort Wayne Komets, 2011 Colonial/United/"I"HL: Brantford Smoke at Flint Bulldogs, 1991 OHL: Guelph Storm at Detroit Jr. Red Wings, 1993 (might have gone to the OHL exhibition game in Saginaw a few years earlier, not sure....)

  4. The NHL According to Brass

    Nice concept! The claw marks on the numbers remind me of the numbers on the old Port Huron Border Cats jerseys:
  5. 2016 MLB Season

    Indians acquire Andrew Miller for prospects Tribe also trades for Jonathan Lucroy (pending his approval) Wow, Cleveland's been busy on deadline day.
  6. 2015-16 CHL uniform/logo thread

    At first I thought it was inevitable, but now I doubt they go with Flint Tropics. IMS Hockey (team owners) wants a nickname that will be marketable for many years and something the community can rally behind. Flint Tropics would have an initial surge in apparel sales and media attention. But once that wears off, all you'll have left is a team with a joke nickname. Plus, while Tropics was popular in the name-the-team contest, a lot of the pro-Tropics votes were from outside of Flint. I'm not hearing too many hockey fans around the Flint area that like that name.My guess is they go with Flint Phoenix, though I would prefer Flint Arrows or Firebirds.
  7. 2014-2024: The next 10 years in sports

    Detroit Lions: Continue to stumble along as an also-ran franchise. Make the playoffs now and then, but no Super Bowls. Detroit Tigers: Remain the top team in the AL Central for several more years, making it to 2 more World Series, winning once. Detroit Red Wings: Franchise continues descent to middle-of-pack team as rebuild/"We like this team, as is.." continues. No Stanley Cups, but the playoff streak continues. Detroit Pistons: Pistons get even worse the first few years as the rebuild continues, but they should be back on track by 2018. CMU Football: Dan Enos fired as coach as program continues to stumble. Port Huron: McMorran Arena is renovated, and Port Huron gets yet another hockey team, this time in the USHL. Arena football comes and goes. Saginaw Spirit: Win their first OHL championship. Pittsburgh Steelers: Two more Super Bowl appearances, winning once. Toronto Maple Leafs: Make it to the Stanley Cup Finals, but lose.
  8. Your Favorite Team's "Mount Rushmore"

    Detroit Red Wings: Gordie Howe Steve Yzerman Terry Sawchuk Nicklas Lidstrom Detroit Lions: Bobby Layne Joe Schmidt Barry Sanders Calvin Johnson Detroit Pistons: Isiah Thomas Dave Bing Bob Lanier Chuck Daly Detroit Tigers: Ty Cobb Hank Greenberg Al Kaline Alan Trammell Toronto Maple Leafs: Ted Kennedy Dave Keon Doug Gilmour Mats Sundin Pittsburgh Steelers: Art Rooney Joe Greene Chuck Noll Jerome Bettis (This was a hard one, so many stars from the 1970s and the 2000s...) Central Michigan Chippewas Football: Roy Kramer Herb Deromedi Dan LeFevour Antonio Brown
  9. Joe Nathan was a "Tiger Killer" during his days in Minnesota. Much to Tigers fans' chagrin, he still is a "Tiger Killer".

  10. Really should have updated this a long time ago. Haven't been to a Komets game in nearly two years!

  11. NHL Anti-Thread: Bad Business Decision Aggregator

    http://slam.canoe.ca/Slam/Hockey/NHL/Phoenix/2012/07/29/20040851.html Of course he's $20 million short...
  12. Searching for your 'whale'

    Found this on eBay, a 1996-97 Saginaw Lumber Kings home jersey, for $29.99. The Lumber Kings were Saginaw's last pro hockey team before the Spirit arrived. The team moved to Saginaw from Chatham and were the Saginaw Wheels for two seasons (1994-96), the Lumber Kings for two seasons (1996-98) and then the Gears for 1 1/2 years (1998-2000, moved to Ohio in December 1999). The Lumber Kings were pretty awful, but I'm glad I found this jersey.

    $50 will buy you this....thing :blink:
  14. Searching for your 'whale'

    I've been looking for a Rangers "Lady Liberty" jersey (preferably the blue version) lately. Thought I found one at teamdepot.com, but they were all out.
  15. Arena Rafters & Banners

    Four new banners at Wings Stadium this year. Two banners for the Canucks and Devils, a Northern Division Champions banner and an Eastern Conference Champions banner. BTW, it took about half of the first period to unroll the championship banners!
