  1. But what about the third? Gold: 13 Silver: 12 Bronze: 4
  2. Should the team logos be used as is, or can they be modified for hockey?
  3. Gold: 16 Silver: 10 Bronze: 8
  4. Why? He's right. White privilege is decidedly a thing.
  5. The script is from the World Series logo that year.
  6. Wow, thanks everyone. Since there was a comment about mine during the voting: Mine was for the 25th anniversary of the forming of Kazakhstan as an independent country after the breakup of the Soviet Union. The graphic elements are all from Kazakhstan's flag:
  7. Joking aside, that's a massive downgrade for being such a subtle change.
  8. Gold: 21 Silver: 9 Bronze: 15
  9. Why, yes, red makes perfect sense when your logo is primarily double-blue and yellow....
  10. [MOD ANNOUNCEMENT] The rhetoric in here has taken a bit of a turn towards the personal. That needs to end. Now. All are welcome to offer opinions, so long as they're willing to do so without vilifying other users; they should also be willing to accept criticism and critique of those opinions. Also, reasonable disagreement with your opinion doesn't mean you're being shut down; it comes with the territory. Despite previous bans on political content, this thread has been allowed to exist mostly due to the fact that it was mostly civil. If this can't be a civil discussion, it won't happen at all. Thank you.
  11. Probably no chance. But thank you. 😊 (*obligatory sigh*)
  12. But it would likely not pass the California emissions test next time he had to have it checked.
  13. As an aside, I just booked a trip for October to see Minnesota play at Puerto Rico for the last time. I kicked myself when the Islanders folded before and I hadn't made the trip down there; now I get one last chance. After that, I will have seen Minnesota (in any incarnation/league) play on the road at seven of the current NASL team; the exceptions are Jacksonville, Miami, Ottawa, and OKC. (I did see the Minnesota Thunder play at Miami FC, but that team is now known as the Ft. Lauderdale Strikers.) Ahh, second-division memories.
  14. Ew. Don't do that. ----- I sat at my work computer on Friday watching the speeches. I won't lie: I was getting a little misty. It's hard to believe how far pro soccer in Minnesota has come since I started going to games in 2005. There were some pretty low times (sitting on the berm in Tampa after the 2012 final wondering if we'd just seen the team's last game comes to mind), which puts all of this in some nice perspective. I'm glad they were able to keep the name. I'm not a huge fan of it to begin with, but yet another name change would have been ludicrous. Looks like I've got a home opener to fly back for next year. Oh, and at least one away game against the Galaxy just up the road.
