  1. MLB changes 2018?

    It's not just you, but I don't think it died with the Kingdome. At least Minute Maid Park has some sandstone to lighten things up. I'm really glad we didn't go with the interior concepts that were proposed for the Bronx and Queens. Wow... I never thought of that, but now that you said it it will be hard not to think of. But the tresses and curves kinda remind me more of Safeco.

    I... have no idea what you're referring to but I immediately want to know all about it.
  3. The New XFL

    I'm unsure of those are meant to be missiles or three guns firing. If they're meant to be missiles, perhaps the solution to this is to take them minus the D, increasing their size to better fit the helmet, and having them face forward on both sides of the helmet. It's the oak and laurel wreath that surrounds the coat of arms of Mexico on the country's seal and flag.

    Sounds like an interesting list: the uniforms that look best in the sun. My suggestions... Although I often hear that on the West Coast the Sun does different things to uniforms. It's the exact fault in the New Era logo that causes it to be a major aesthetic issue.
  5. PyeongChang 2018

    That a guess or the official answer the team had planned? Either way, sounds awesome.
  6. Sorry this took so long, but I had to do some research to find the Rockets' seeding and learn what the Voyageur's Cup is/draw one up. @Yee Yee Go 'Stros!, you don't have to pay anything. I get enough free advertising just by having you wear it. Since the term "wild card" is almost never used in basketball, I gave their seed each year. @CodeG, I brought up a lot of information and then realized I was thinking of the Caspar Ghosts and both of those teams are fictional. I can get them done, but can you hook me up with a link to the threads for those teams' leagues? Here's the rest of it sans those two teams.
  7. PyeongChang 2018

    So, they play "Born in the USA" for the win. Not the best choice, but it got me thinking... What were they going to play for the Canadians? And what song would they play for the rest of the teams in the tournament if they had won instead of the Americans. That American streak! I can't wait for the Canadian rematch. It's gonna be fun. Even better than him just being there was the scene of him and a number of the bottom of the standings athletes waiting for the final skier to celebrate all together and hug it out. Guy came in waving the Mexican flag like he'd won the gold.

    Anyone else look at these and find that it's not just a matter of resizing but an actual different logo? I mean, it's minor differences, but it looks quite clearly to me that the stroke shapes are not the same. Looks like the top of the new cap logo sticks out a lot less and the bottom sticks out a lot more. And the distance between the two vertical strokes on the left is much more. It's almost like this is actually a combination of the two logos rather than a promotion of one.
  9. I did a thing, y'all!

    Looks really good, although I'm curious as to if the style of the lettering... numbering... font is a direct reference to something Miami or is just a cool design. It does look good.

    This was the color scheme I wanted when it was announced a classic color would return in the new uniforms.

    You would be surprised how hard it is at such a small scale. A little extra weight at the bottom and it looks like it flares like bell bottoms. The line bumping out one pixel you can get away with, but making it three pixels wide causes an angular stepped/tiered look at that thinness. Make the base thicker and it looks like a weird pyramid jammed into a football that's too small. This was the best look. I wish I had kept the 20-step process I took trying and re-trying to get what looked best.
  12. MLB City Edition Series by Pinch Designer (Yankees 30/30)

    I didn't realize that's what that was. I thought you were basing it on a guayabera.
  13. MLB changes 2018?

    Wow, that really sounds like a fun project for the concept board.
  14. MLB changes 2018?

    Ahh... I've never been good with dates. Well, I suppose if I remembered that I'd know the Expos were in the class of 69 with... the Padres? Jeez, this really is a blind spot for me. The only reason I know about Expo 67 at all is because in my Architecture History class we learned about Habitat.

    I think a major factor is what happened when you were alive/old enough to remember or actively follow the sport. The Rays and Diamondbacks are forever linked in my mind and because they came out at the same time I often feel their general worth kind of correlates in terms of success. I was six when the Marlins and Rockies came, so the link is a lot more tenuous and easy to forget if I don't take a second to think about it. Meanwhile, I know the Mets came out in '62, but I often struggle to remember if their expansion mates were the Astros or the Expos (and I should know this because the Expos came out the year of the Montreal Expo, but all I can remember about that was that it was "Expo Sixty-Something"). I know the Twins moved in '61 to start the expansion era with the Senators (Rangers), but I can't remember if their expansion mate was the Royals or Angels. The mention of the Mariners and Blue Jays didn't resonate with me at all. And I didn't remember NYCFC and Orlando sharing an expansion class, but I only paid attention to one team and am not hugely involved in the league as a whole.
