  1. Wizards make it official: https://wizardstoday.monumentalsportsnetwork.com/2017/06/21/washington-wizards-purchase-nba-g-league-team
  2. Subjectively, I'd take every primary kit and about half of the away/change kits they got from UA over these (with the caveat that we haven't seen the actual jerseys yet). Aesthetics aside, I'd rather have hit-or-miss jerseys designed specifically for the team over consistently dull jerseys that look the same as half the clubs and national teams in the world. To me, these templates emphasize the manufacturer's identity over the team's.
  3. I had months to prepare myself to be underwhelmed by a bland, templated jersey, and yet I was somehow still disappointed by this. I hope the cash upgrade from Under Armour to Nike is enough to help keep the team on the field growing together, but it's a shame* that this "upgrade" comes at the cost of the (by-and-large) quality, bespoke designs they received as UA's premiere franchise. * A very, very small shame compared to having to sell off this fun team of talented, young players.
  4. Just saw this on Twitter from a Montana congressional race - it's not perfect, but I thought it was refreshingly different from other candidate logos: The way his name is written reminds me of the kind of treatment you'd see for a band name on a 70's rock album cover.
  5. Renderings for the next generation of subway cars also incorporate the same colors:

  7. Even if a team's intention to "honor" is legitimate, they don't do much to further these intentions by deciding if/how to represent a group of people without asking them if/how they want to be represented. To me, the best path forward for teams that want to keep Native-inspired names but move past imagery/traditions that are out-of-step is to follow what the Spokane Indians did. They didn't just back up their "honoring" rhetoric by respecting the tribe's right to have a say in how they are portrayed; they recognized that they could use the team's visibility to boost awareness of the tribe's culture and history, and use that culture and history as a resource to enrich the franchise's identity. And, not coincidentally, they ended up with one of the best, and most unique identities in the minors.
  8. Hawaiian Airlines has updated their logo and livery: New Livery: Old Livery: Logo history:
  9. Yeah, I want to like those bits because I love the show and enjoy Bomani and PFTC individually, but it just comes off like an awkward, poorly-executed homage to Phil Hendrie.
  10. Life imitating art: (for those who aren't acquainted with him, PFTCommenter's entire persona is Tank, right down to the grammar and spelling, but done ironically)
  11. Does this make us all Tnak hipsters? "His earlier unhinged rants were much better, before he became mainstream."
  12. One day, we'll be telling our grandkids we knew the eventual 47th President of the United States before he did his first pain reliever commercial. http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/baseball/mets/mets-fan-angry-nj-transit-car-tix-friday-game-article-1.3019421

  14. Depressingly, the Nets' big red box is a feature, not a bug: Sigh.
