  1. Interesting Field Designs

    Assuming the drawing is accurate, the Patriots field in the original post had an 18 yard long logo.

    This one is pretty close . . . in the NFL category (at least in length). There's no contest if we add college teams . . . again, at least as to length.
  3. Lazy Googling in the Media

    You dare . . . because it is vastly superior to the real thing.
  4. Teams with similar colors as the Houston Oilers?

    At the risk of a threadjack, Richie Ashburn says hello.
  5. Changes to Titans uniforms in 2018 are 'not minor'

    The blob of color on the helmet looks like the Flaming Thumbtack, though the angle seems slightly off. It's hard to see enough of anything in that image to allow a reasonable guess about the helmet or uniform.

    We will, of course, overlook the minor detail that that game took place in 2000 . . . since the NFL wants us to do so.
  7. Teams with similar colors as the Houston Oilers?

    I actually agree with you on that. The colors look great together. I just don't think the Phillies thought of powder blue as a team color in the 70s and 80s. To that end, I would guess that they never sold any powder blue merchandise then other than replica road jerseys (assuming they sold replica road jerseys then).
  8. Teams with similar colors as the Houston Oilers?

    To add to the point about the Phillies and Cardinals, both teams switched later to grey road uniforms that were otherwise identical to the powder blue ones. That suggests to me that neither team thought of powder blue as a team color (at least at the time)*. * -- The Phillies have started marketing merchandise in powder blue and maroon. However, this seems to me to be historical revisionism, at best.
  9. Teams with similar colors as the Houston Oilers?

    1. I always think of the top uniform as representing a red and white team that happened to wear powder blue road uniforms. If you treat the powder blue as a team color, you have to include these as well. 2. I think the uniform on the bottom left is powder blue and orange. EDIT -- @rjrrzube is right. It's more aqua than powder blue. BONUS -- Is that Goose Gossage in the top picture?
  10. Pittsburgh Steeler Jersey Numbers

    Tastes great!!!!!!
  11. MLB changes 2018?

    I think all teams are at least wearing the Marjory Stoneman Douglas caps pregame. By the way, that's a good looking SD monogram (considering the image is a cut-and-paste job). Somebody call the Padres. EDIT: Here's the real thing. Still looks good to me.

    To the right, for consistency.
  13. 2018 MLB Hot Stove Season

    Agreed. There are no sure things, but there are four pitchers with track records that suggest they could have good years.
  14. 2018 MLB Hot Stove Season

    The Orioles have resigned Chris Tillman. I'm going to go out on a limb and say that this turns out to be a very good signing. I think he never fully recovered from his early season injury and is ready for a bounce back year. Even his worst season before last year would be a nice upgrade at the No. 4 spot in the rotation.
