  1. Age: 37 Music Preferences: Steely Dan, Doves, Ben Folds Five, Jamiroquai, Ben Harper Music Dislikes: Most mega-play Top 40 stuff, but sometimes get hooked (current examples "Roar" "Timber" etc.) due to becoming a minivan rider with two young daughters. Disney soundtracks, on the other hand, make me contemplate a knitting needle to the ears recently. Clothing Preferences: Team-issue shorts and self-designed logo long sleeve tees while home; Button-down dress shirts with sleeves rolled up and pleatless khakis or subtle pattern suit pants while out. Sports Uniform Preferences: Traditional minimalist on the threads; I’ve become a sucker for matte helmets when done correctly; strong penchant for high socks, particularly with unique exposed striped/logo’d stirrups in baseball/softball; tastefully executed fauxbacks. Sports Uniform Dislikes: Football padless biker shorts look (even though I was a pad minimalist as a player); hockey masks on baseball catchers; color mismatches; roundels; city/team name not used properly on home/road uniforms; gimmicky one-offs.
  2. Bloomington Thunder "reincarnation?"

    Yep, at least the youth logo incorporates more of the "Iron Horse" look of the "Prairie Thunder" that was the old locomotive on the Central Illinois rails.
  3. Bloomington Thunder The railroad correlation makes sense, I can appreciate the compromise due to legalities, but the logo itself is disappointing (particularly if you're going with the railroad theme, go era-appropriate when Bloomington's railroad prominence was historically significant). And don't get me started on purple/silver/black. Way to conform to a decade-old trend.
