    The 2018 NHL Silly Season: Dilly Dilly

    For an executive making seven figures, it seems like throwing in a full-time translator for $50-$100K per year wouldn't be a big deal. The fans would still get their contact with the GM (that is worthless 99% of the time, anyway).

    Reading Fightins to go green on Phanatic Tribute Night

    Not sure there was a better way to go to achieve this end, but the pullover and the illustration remind me of kids’ summer pajamas.

    NFL 2018 changes

    Teams like the Oilers and the Bears should lighten their navy when used in small amounts against orange... it just ends up looking black to me.

    NHL 2017-18

    I think we've just run into an intractable difference of opinion. I readily admit that the orca and the new Seahawks logo have a little bit of attitude, I think it's all pretty restrained. It's especially true with the Seahawks, since birds of prey usually have resting bitch face to varying degrees. The 70s seahawk just feels incredibly stale to me. The grimace on the orca is a slight downturn of the mouth; it could have easily been some rage-filled cartoon logo.

    Choking / Cursed Franchises

    In the Great White North and Buffalo, snow and leaves probably overlap more than they do down in tropical Chicago. I was on vacation last November... lawn clear when I left, leaves were already snowed over by the time I returned. By the time spring comes, they are beaten down into the ground and don't always get chewed up by the lawnmower very well.

    I've done some March 5th raking. That's "I got lazy/went on vacation in the fall, the snow has melted, the leaves have congealed together over the winter, and I need to break them up before they kill the grass."

    Maybe this is where some of the disagreement comes from. I know it will probably never be forgiven for its corporate origin, but I think it's a pretty good representation of First Nations art. It has a little grimace (mostly from the lack of real eyes, I think), but it's not far off. IMO of course, but it's definitely the best logo they've ever had.

    Logos And Uniforms That Are So Ugly They’re Awesome

    1) The Gunds were part owners of the Seals. 2) The Seals moved to Cleveland to become the Barons. 3) The Gunds became total owners of the Barons. 4) The Barons and the North Stars merge, with the Gunds owning the North Stars. 5) In lieu of being allowed to move the North Stars to the Bay Area, the Gunds are given an expansion team. However, the Gunds are allowed to take a large portion of the North Stars roster with them; the North Stars participated in the expansion draft along with the Sharks after having been in the NHL for 25 years. That's a de-merger, folks.

    Turn the triangle into a thick V and put a blue outline where the green shirt touches the green V... all set.

    Either stick-in-rink, to me, is the equivalent of the Indians' block C... there's no "there" there. It baffles me that so many people want it as the crest full-time.

    No worries. In the Sabres' current state, being forgotten is almost a blessing.

    The Sabres are in the same boat as the Canucks.

    "Hostile architecture" AKA "defensive design"

    To that, I have the same response that I had to the Occupy movement: those public spaces don't belong to you or I; they belong to everyone. It's not there for one person or a small group to monopolize its use.

    Okay IHOP, I know about your burgers, but now I hate your guts for wasting my time. Well played.

    What is the interest for new sports?

    This is the reason I enjoy women's tennis and volleyball better than the men's game. And, if we're being honest, there's other reasons to enjoy volleyball as well; I didn't care about the "legends" football league, though. There needs to be a reason that the women's game is better than the men's. Do those reasons exist for basketball and hockey? Other than "sisters doin' it for themselves"? Otherwise, it becomes another minor league, and those are small-time affairs, at best.
  17. The Golden Knights are powered by their virtue and purity. I thought everyone knew that.
  18. The hockey gods didn't want to deprive everyone of their sanctimony when a Vegas fan throws something on the ice when Washington wins the Cup on the road.
  19. You know Bill Foley was soooo pissed that the Army herald trumpets were there for Washington.

    What is the interest for new sports?

    To be serious for a minute, I see two options: - start playing with friends and friends of friends and grow organically like that - spend a lot of money marketing your sport so people know what the heck it is Maybe some day you can be the next Kan Jam.
