    Which logo do you like? Our old logo, our current logo, the one we want to be our current logo, or three dummies to give you the illusion of choice?

    Football taught me how to run routes through the blitz of life.

    Freudian Why didn't you say "football teaches people how to get knocked down and get back up again"? That's my favorite!

    Turns out a bunch of these were him quoting rap lyrics or movies.

    Waive him, and the Cardinals -- ironically, the team whose fanbase was obsessed with its own choir-boy behavior before Twitter was even around to steal their bit -- would pick him right off the scrap heap and no one there would care what he did when he was legally a child and not signed to a major-league contract.

    So suspend him or make him wear some sort of hairshirt. Or fire him for cause, the cause of having been dumb online before the age of majority, and let the strongest players' union in sports think about what kind of precedent they're going to stand for. Unions are still more beholden to their members than they are to media creatures who live on Twitter, right?

    No, they shouldn't unperson an All-Star because he was retarded on the internet as a teenager.

    "Guy with thick Maryland accent apologizes for history of N-word tweets" is a Nick Mullen bit in real life

    Oh no, did he use the N-word?

    MLB changes 2018?

    They didn't have a team for 30+ years, then had three years in a temporary stadium, and then had to wait for other promised new venues to get their All-Star Games. It's easy to believe.

    Oakland, Tampa, Baltimore, and Pittsburgh fans have probably had it worse.

    San Diego Padres focus-grouping new uniforms for 2020

    I think it's time to retire the 2004 font, but yeah, the color distribution is right.

    The brown could be more of a redder chocolate brown, but that could just be lighting.

    The 2018 NHL Silly Season: Dilly Dilly

    Emery went 45/47 and perfect in the shootout in what felt like a real turning-point win in The Year The Blackhawks Saved Hockey. Crawford went wire-to-wire in the playoffs that year, but the Hawks probably don't get that run out of Crawford without Emery picking up two-fifths of the compressed schedule and throwing up a .922 with it. Hell of a goalie, sad to see him die so young, glad he got his name on the Cup.

    Just to put a bow on this, the actual line of "I am a Cardinal" is loads funnier than "Today, we are all Cardinals." Ah, we were kids.

    San Diego Padres focus-grouping new uniforms for 2020

    Here's hoping the Padres can settle on a uniform that focus groups agree is "mostly the least displeasing."

    I like forest green too, but the vividness of kelly green and athletic gold suits the Oakland A's on so many levels: baseball as summer sport, California, being untraditional. Rays should be in columbia blue and forest green. Tar Heel baseball with green instead of navy, basically.

    No, you're actually not, "today we are all _____" is classic CCSLC Mandela Effect.

    That's too bad, he's been a sizable part of the Cubs' recent success. When was the last time St. Louis fired a manager midseason? Had to be one of the times they plugged Schoendienst in, right?

    The 2018 NHL Silly Season: Dilly Dilly

    Here's Lambert not knowing his stuff again: One doesn't have to wonder at all. The Jets have the wealthiest ownership in the league and their small venue and small market overachieve into middle-market status. I'm sure their TSN money dwarfs the TV deals in Dallas, St. Louis, Nashville, et al. The line from Chipman has always been that they're not going to throw money away but will have the green light to spend to the cap when they're playing for a Cup. They're doing that now and we should expect them to spend to the cap.
