  1. Remember that sports are still a business, and putting sports on TV is still a business. TV networks want the most eyeballs possible tuning in so they can justify the prices they charge for ads. Therefore, they want to show games featuring teams that are either good or popular enough that it doesn't matter if they are good -- irritating as that may be when those wind up being the same teams over and over again.
  2. So my wife and I have been on a roll picking good movies lately. On Friday, we fired up Netflix and watched Pride (2014). It tells the story of a group of lesbian and gay people who basically adopted a mining town in Wales during the miners' strike in the United Kingdom in 1984, raising money to allow the townspeople to keep living and keep fighting, and finding acceptance and allies along the way in an unlikely place. I had a few issues with the pacing of the story, but it was beautifully acted and beautifully shot. It dealt tactfully with some of the violence directed toward gay people at that place and time. And you haven't lived until you've seen an elderly Welsh woman get out of a van at a gay pride parade and proclaim in her accent, "Where are my lesbians?!" Then yesterday, we went to the theatres — which is a rarity for us — to see Hidden Figures. Another movie based on true events, it's an inspiring story of African-American women working at NASA in the 1960s as the United States prepared to put John Glenn into orbit and was heavily engaged in the space race against the Soviet Union. It's a fascinating look at how space travel was achieved in a time before advanced computer technology and the racism and sexism that these women had to face and overcome both in their jobs and in society in general.
  3. Likely Oswald.
  4. We Canadians don't give nearly as much thought to Marty McSorley as you think we do.
  5. As soon as I saw this thread had been started, I was waiting for you to post this.
  6. Very nice! This is definitely a case of addition by subtraction. I think it works well as just one colour — it would translate well to grayscale or black-and-white applications, and more colours would just get in the way of the simplicity you worked hard to achieve. I would, however, like to see many a couple of folds in the ribbon to emphasize ESPANA and play down PLUS and ULTRA.
  7. Earlier this week, it was so dry in my office that I could hardly concentrate. I went out that night and bought a $40 humidifier from London Drugs, and it has made a world of difference. It's by no means Hawaii or even New York in July in here, but this thing is pretty awesome.
  8. Today's Bournemouth-Liverpool game proves the Goal Decision System works.

  11. Because the Cubs just ended a 108-year championship doubt and put to bed one of the most famous and storied "curses" in sports history. Because the Cubs were branded as "lovable losers" for so long, and now they've finally won.

  13. There is such a thing as too simple, and I think these might be it. The forms are all a bit blobby; they're like Rorschach tests. Clean, crisp lines will only help your work look more professional. I'm not crazy about seeing the font in every concept so far. But even the few times you switch it up, you've opted for fonts that are hard to read. Your Bulls scripts reads like BVLLS and, with the black letter font you used, the T in the Timberwolves concept reads more like a lowercase R.
