  1. If interested in adding another area could do Northern Ontario. Sure there's other inspiration out there but here's a curling crest for the region:
  2. The Battle of Seattle

    I assumed you were joking with the "misspelling" of favorite and just made more than a bit of a goofy post after that. If you were joking I apologize for going a bit overboard in adding a bunch of word spelled like Canadians do (and Americans don't). If you weren't joking, U.S. spelling isn't the only spelling of the English language and since the original poster who posted the concepts is Canadian my signature certainly is relevant but not to myself.
  3. The Battle of Seattle

    Can you gauge the magnitude of your love for the Mets sweater and analyse your feelings for it? Humour me. Do you harbour a bit, less than a tonne, of ill will toward the colour? Has it not enough lustre or do you clamour towards a colour that breaks the mould of common hockey sweater colour schemes such as a sombre grey or my favourite a matte brown? Not to belabour the point, and without rancour, I support the defence of the green colour with every fibre of my being. Maybe my opinion is not worth 2 cents. I'd say the cheque is in the mail, but my fervour died for that idea and I favoured having it cancelled. Honour me with a response if you think my behaviour warrants it.
  4. My Hockey Jersey is too Small!

    take the crest off the jersey and sew it on another jersey or shirt?
  5. My Hockey Jersey is too Small!

    For a change of pace, I'll try a serious answer: you could wear a mock turtleneck of the same or very similar colour underneath your shirt.
  6. Logos associated with failure.

    Stick a fork in them they are done. Their last logo.
  7. Teams with similar colors as the Houston Oilers?

    WHA Nordiques in there first season (1972/73)
  8. Thrift Store Gems 2017

    Spent way more than I usually do in the thrift stores - picked up these two handknit sweaters for $40 each on Friday. That day I just couldn't leave them there. Winnipeg Blue Bombers & Winnipeg Jets.
  9. Thrift Store Gems 2017

    Picked up this Mexico baseball cap for $4 at Value Village We had the WBSC U-18 World Baseball Cup here locally this summer, but I believe Mexico only wore green caps during the tournament so this is likely from another event elsewhere. 5950 New Era fitted hat with tag with World Baseball Classic and logo tag sewn inside and logo on back of cap. this logo but without the words:
  10. Beer Cans and Bottles

    Someone on a local memories Facebook group had a pictured of canned water from many many decades ago. from CP (Canadian Pacific) Railway.
  11. Beer Cans and Bottles

    looks like the stubby is back (too bad it's only limited time) On the topic of stubby bottles here's a few from the past:
  12. Thrift Store Gems 2017

    Picking pretty sparse recently. Picked up a vintage Expos pill box style hat in great condition at a second hand consignment store for $10 (not my pic but this style): Also found a rarity at a thrift shop - an old CFL book for $3 Mel Profit: For Love, Money, and Future Considerations (Photographs by Terry Hancey. copyright 1972)
  13. Unique ice designs

    K-wings with the infamous McDonald's uniforms and the yellow ice:
  14. Your city's Mount Rushmore

    Couldn't do a 'Mount Rushmore' based on my city's teams (no pro teams) but if it was players that were born and/or lived here there would be wealth to choose from though it would be hockey heavy: would have to choose 3 of the 5 from hockey: Alex Delvecchio, Jack Adams, Edgar Laprade. (More recent consideration Eric Staal) curling: Al Hackner skiing: Dave Irwin (or possibly Steve Collins)
  15. Worked on this as entry in Uni Watch fauxback jersey contest. Modified my slight modification (Paint/MS Paint "friendly") of Sparky Chewbarky's sweater template to smaller hockey sweater dimensions more in keeping with the era depicted. Didn't submit this one after reading the area posted above "The Rules" regarding something to the effect that it needed to be original and not a knock-off (like the Rays were of the late 1970's Padres). Made up a fake history where the Oakland Clippers didn't move to Spokane but instead moved to San Jose, and drew up a chain stitched Sharks logo for the sweater. I modified the striping by making it a bit simpler and thicker so it wouldn't look like a direct knock-off of the Oakland/Spokane Clippers. So although I don't like it as much as the one above, the one below is what I entered: That about as good as I could do with the limited spare time I had and the even more limited artistic and computer graphic ability. If someone want to modify it, use some aspects of it to make something better, throw in their own take on the idea, etc., feel free.
