    Bye Bye, Baby Cakes - The Great American AAA Shell Game

    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.

    Bye Bye, Baby Cakes - The Great American AAA Shell Game

    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.

    Indians Remove Chief Wahoo from Uniform in Toronto

    I've never thought of it this way, but the block C almost seems like "FINE if we can't have Wahoo then I guess we have to have THIS as the logo" all the while knowing the block C is boring. Agreed, the block C is too bland. But it doesn't mean they have to have something bland just because they can't have Wahoo.

    Introducing the Alliance of American Football

    Sorry to bring the WLAF talk back... ...but I've never heard anything about this. Do you have any sources? It would certainly explain why the Frankfurt Galaxy wore purple and orange...

    Thrift Store Gems 2018

    Fram is a brand of oil filters. The hat was likely part of a promotional giveaway associated with purchasing oil filters.

    Barnum's Animals - New Packaging

    No way, these safety measures need to be implemented from the bottom up. If high school kids learn to play safely against gorillagators early, then they'll be ready by the time they make it to the NFL. It's science.

    Barnum's Animals - New Packaging

    Yeah, that seems reasonable. Regular gorillas are fine for the NFL, but we need to test out how these mutant grizzly-gorillas (grizzillas?) behave in game situations before we let them loose at the top level. Maybe we can begin with high schools?

    Barnum's Animals - New Packaging

    How do these work into the NFL "one designated gorilla play per game" rule changes? Are these mutant gorillas allowed?
  15. I wouldn't think so, but there's only a select few drivers that could pull it off. Austin Dillon runs a primarily-black car with the Earnhardt-style "3": and Kevin Harvick, who took over Earnhardt's ride after he died, drove a black #29 Goodwrench car for a few years: So... I'd say the acceptable list of drivers who could pull off an Earnhardt throwback is basically limited to Austin Dillon and Kevin Harvick.
