    Staples Canada changes logo

    Yeah, I think we're tossing "iconic" around willy-nilly without abandon here. This doesn't even warrant a "meh." This is a "sure, whatever, I guess."

    Non-sports logos that could be good sports logos?

    I encountered a chain of gas stations/convenience stores in Idaho while traveling there a few weeks ago. Behold, Stinker Stores: One station sold New Era 3930 hats with the skunk logo on them (no text). It should be obvious that I quickly became the proud owner of one.

    DC Baseball - Nationals alt concept

    The curve made by the seams on the baseball does not match the curve made by the right side of the D and left side of the C.

    Trivia Question

    A forfeit?

    Trivia Question

    Zero - every batter bats out of order and is called out? Wild guess, I'm not sure if batting out of order counts as a plate appearance/batter faced?

    College athletics identity changes 2018-19

    This is for 2019-20, but LIU-Post and LIU-Brooklyn are combining their athletic programs. https://www.newsday.com/sports/college/liu-post-liu-brooklyn-1.21416636 RIP Blackbirds.

    Thrift Store Gems 2018

    Burlington had about 20 Carolina Panthers Nike authentic jerseys for $50... all of them blank, so I passed. Also a bunch of USA soccer warmup jackets at $40-50. Nice stuff, but I also passed.

    Minor League Baseball News

    I had a "concept" a few years ago of standardized NCAA team abbreviations as a way to avoid that. It wasn't perfect, but it was... something, for sure.

    Dammit, I knew you'd get me. How did I neglect to look at the actual city limits? We actually stayed just across the river from Algiers (Bywater/St. Claude) for a conference back in April.

    New Carl's Jr./ Hardee's Logos

    That's because there pretty much is. And it's even crazier because I'm pretty sure they closed quite a few locations in the '90s-early 2000s. I can think of at least 3 closed Hardee's locations in my SC hometown alone. A big part of Hardee's expansion in the '70s-'80s was putting restaurants in smaller towns (or areas of larger towns) that didn't have a McDonald's or Burger King. A lot like the NBA's "only game in town" approach in Sacramento/SLC/Portland/etc.

    To be fair, New Orleans is every direction but south of the Mississippi River.

    Fun With Flags!!!!

    That's actually a pretty solid flag. It doesn't pass the test of "immediately recognizable to what it represents" (I would've guessed a state in Brazil), but it's much more preferable than the NYPD patch slapped on a blue field.

    Other, Lesser-Known Uniform Manufacturers

    I wondered what happened to Sports Belle - they were a Knoxville-based supplier that seemingly vanished in the mid-2000s. They supplied Winthrop's basketball jerseys for a few years, and I have a few jerseys/shorts made by them. http://archive.knoxnews.com/news/crime-courts/sports-belle-owner-paid-to-have-his-business-torched-federal-court-records-state-ep-786519672-353911601.html https://www.wate.com/news/knoxville-man-sentenced-to-78-years-in-2008-sports-apparel-company-arson/792999625 Well, turns out the owner burned his whole operation down (literally) in 2008. I guess he saw the writing on the wall re: the big-name suppliers forcing him out of business, and tried to collect on the insurance $$$. That's one way to do it, I guess. The first article includes some information I didn't know about the company - apparently Sports Belle started post-Title IX and became known for supplying athletic apparel cut specifically for women. Interesting approach with good foresight there. Also explains the "Belle" in the name.

    Apparently Timor-Leste is counting Arizona as a municipality. But yeah, cool concept. Some of them work, some don't.
