  1. Stratford Warriors go symbolic with new logo

    Certainly an upgrade in my opinion. As for the swan, if it wasn't there I would feel like there was something missing to it. It works very well in this instance and as others have pointed out, is an important symbol of Stratford (and it's better to add waterfowl than Shakespeare or Bieber to your team's logo).
  2. NHL Anti-Thread: Bad Business Decision Aggregator

    I'm sure they got Party City already lined up to sponsor them.
  3. Could the Rays be moving to Las Vegas?

    The Argos are an interesting case to examine on their own. One way that I feel like they'd be different in this case is that their games are broadcasted nationwide on TSN, so for all we know 90% of those viewers could be Riders fans out in Saskatchewan who live and die by the CFL and wouldn't be able to go and see most Argos games in person. As for the Rays, I feel like there is still a lot of potential there. I can't really state my reasons without saying what almost everybody else has said multiple times, however I feel like a good market to compare to Tampa with a lot of things is Atlanta. Sure, Atlanta's metro population is about twice the size as Tampa is, but they're both cities that have a ton of transplants and have both at one point had stadiums that are located away from the fanbase. The Braves are 30 years older than the Rays and have had lots of success over the years, but even that didn't do a whole lot for their attendance, even when they were good (but still slightly better than the Rays). But the main reason I compare them is to see how the Cobb County experiment goes for the Braves long term. From what I've seen so far, it is going very well for them. Their average attendance is higher now than it was in some of their more recently competitive years. I'm sure that may drop off a little bit if they still suck in 3 or 4 years, but only time will tell. I feel like if the Rays do something like that and bring the ballpark closer to Tampa (which might be a while since they're stuck in their agreement with St. Petes), the numbers will rise and they will become a viable market, or at least see some moderate success.
  4. McDonalds customer pays for order of nothing

    All of the McDonalds locations that I've been to over the last year or so have the machines and honestly it doesn't seem like they have fewer staff. If anything it seems to be better overall for the customer since they now have more people helping with preparing orders instead of dealing with taking them and assuring they're entered properly. As for Chick-Fil-A, it's something I wish that we had up here in Canada since it is different from anything that we really have up here. Hedley summed it up best with his Chick-Fil-A in NYC comparison when it comes to willingness to travel to a close one and try it out. An example of that is that I once tagged along with a buddy of mine who wanted to drive to the nearest CFA for Erie, PA (200 Miles/325 KM). Not really nearby, but he offered to drive and I had nothing to do that day, so I figured I might as well tag along for something I don't usually get.
  5. 2017-18 CHL Logos/Jerseys

    Full Otters jersey unveiled: Looks nice, however that dip between the R and the I is going to bother the hell out of me for years to come.
  6. 2017 NHL Offseason

    Well, they did play each other in the cup finals 20 years ago. That must be something that'll get players such as Dylan Larkin or Travis Konecny excited to continue that heated rivalry.
  7. Strange Anaheim Mighty Ducks Jersey

    Is that a wordmark on the shoulder?
  8. Rappers (*not* Rockers) in Unis and Logo Related stuff

    I usually don't like bumping old threads, but I saw this today and immediately thought of this thread. Here's 2Pac on Arsenio wearing a 90's Expos cap (the full blue one).
  9. Beer/Wine/Spirits Thread

    I was down in Atlanta last weekend and had a chance to try some of the local beer. I tried 13 total beers and some of them were very good. Probably the best one that I had was SweetWater Goin' Costal Pineapple IPA. It had a bit of a mild hoppy aftertaste, but it had a heavy pineapple presence, which made it very tasty. I'm usually not one to crave a beer after I've already tried it, but I really wish I could've had another one. The other one that I really like, even though it wasn't local was Omaha Nada Banana. It had a fairly noticeable banana flavour (hence the name) but had a lot of vanilla flavour in it too. The beer itself almost seemed fluffy to me somehow (can't explain how, but it was really nice). The other good ones that are worth mentioning were Monday Night's Fu Man Brew and Terrapin's Chopsecutioner, which is an exclusive to SunTrust Park and brewed using bat wood. Unfortunately, I couldn't find Terrapin's Moo-Hoo anywhere, which sounded pretty good and would've been great to check out, but I got to try these other ones so it wasn't all bad.
  10. Historical location markers/plaques (sports related)

    I love the idea of this thread! Anyway, here are the ones that I have. First professional football game plaque located just outside of Heinz Field: Comiskey Park Homeplate: Chicago Stadium plaque:
  11. Local TV station logos

    I really like this thread since this is something that interests me too. Unfortunately, Canada is very boring when it comes to many of their TV station logos (they either use the same logo for all affiliate station, or are fairly boring independent station logos). Since the closest major US city is Buffalo, we get all of their stations, so since nobody has posted them, here are their logos: NBC- WGRZ Ch 2 Current: Old: CBS- WIVB Ch 4 ABC- WKBW Ch 7 Fox- WUTV Ch 29 Current: Old: (Early 1990's) (1992)

    Not anymore. Saginaw used it for their 3rd jersey a few years ago:
  13. Tank in the news

    That will change after 5 minutes here.
  14. Still better than the NBA.
  15. Chicoutimi Sagueneens "beer"

    As somebody who loves both sports and beer with a passion, this is pretty sweet. I seriously wish that every team had their own beer. Currently the only other ones that I'm familiar with that have their own beer are the Flint Firebirds and the San Jose Sharks. I would've tried the Firebirds beer when I was there a couple of months ago, but I wasn't 21 at the time.
