    2020 Election Logos/Branding Thread

    I thought maybe they were going for an Iron Range theme, though I'm pretty sure Klobuchar herself is just from the Cities. But I like it. Feels modern but also kinda WPA-ish (though I highly doubt there will be anything WPA-ish about her platform; she's a pretty standard Democrat, though at least a likable and human one).

    No one hits the polls like the "dude I'm not saying I could TAKE McGregor or anything but like if I were drunk and he said something about my friends I could last at least two rounds" guys.

    2018 MLB Off Season Thread

    We see a lot of the same early-prime talk in hockey. Maybe people just don't like to be presented with "your life enters inexorable decline at 25."
  4. The only change I would make on the Bears is separating the pants stripes so they match the jersey/sock stripes. I wonder how it would look on the homes, but it should be nice and harmonious in the great all-white set.
  5. According to the good old Gridiron Uniform Database, you're right: the Colts wore blue pants for three games in September 1995 and not again until last year. This is a weird CCSLC distortion of history: select pictures of the Colts in blue pants on the road have been posted here so many times as a citation for what the team ought to do that I thought they represented a much larger section of the team's history than one month in 1995. Same with the Detroit Lions in blue pants and grey socks, which I've seen a lot but only existed in the 1998 season and not three or four years like I thought.

    Dude, Bernie's been wearing the same suit since 1976, of course he'll use the 2016 logo.

    2019 MLB Changes

    You can get a batting practice jersey out of flipping navy and white, but once you apply that to triple piping, it gets a little messy, and without that, it looks like a batting practice jersey. There's up to a third of the majors that should be alternate-proof: besides the obvious Yankees, the Cardinals, Mets, Braves, Angels, Nationals, and Red Sox never look good deviating from white and grey. I'm probably forgetting more. EDIT: Tigers, Dodgers, Giants, that's ten

    The Braves have a delicate balance of red and blue that is upset by a colored alternate. Somehow this doesn't apply to secondary stuff like jackets and practice jerseys but neither alternate works, and red even worse than blue.
  9. Everything doesn't need to match perfectly between home and road, but there should be enough similarities to suggest that it's the same team. What you never want is the mid-2000s Ottawa Senators, where the team wore traditional white sweaters with block letters, block numbers, and the team's actual logo, but then crazy red sweaters with swooshes, Serpentine letters and numbers, and a 2XTREME ANGRY 3-D version of their logo. Or, back in football, a situation where you're associated with a certain primary color and wear it at home but then go on the road and wear a different primary color instead.

    I'm fearing sort of a change-for-the-sake-of-change where they outline the A on the hats and reduce the piping to single-layer navy blue (very clean, really pops). Or perhaps they'll put a secondary/roundel that doesn't need to be there on the sleeve. Or maybe simplify some of the old details out of the tomahawk. Frankly, I'm still not over them getting rid of vertically arched lettering.

    I wish I were sensitive to dog whistling. Years of headphone use have probably made me half-deaf.

    2018-19 NHL Season

    Apparently all the greatest minds in the Stars organization are on Jumbotron duty and not in management. That's why there was no one to say "hey, dumbass, you won a scoring title with 87 points because some idiot broke Patrick Kane's clavicle before he could hit 100."

    Goodbye Baby Cakes: New Wichita team seeking name ideas

    I've never been very good at noticing distinctions between parks in one class of minors and the one right above or below it. I can tell a short-season A stadium from a AAA stadium, but somewhere along the way they all blend in. There's always a berm in the outfield, I dunno. I don't see why the one in New Orleans couldn't be a AA stadium. The Baby Cakes identity was self-evidently horrid, but the blue and grey Zephyrs identity before it wasn't nearly novel enough for New Orleans. They could have done something in purple, yellow, and green that was locally relevant without going into over-the-top N'AWLINS tourist crap, figuring that the radius for minor-league baseball fans is going to be much smaller than that of the Saints. Whole lot of getting it wrong.
