  1. Didn't he leave someone off of Team USA for an Olympics because he had a dream that player cost them the gold medal? Sorry, you don't get to pick my team name.

    2019 MLB Changes

    Pretty sweet deal for the Yanks... the Red Sox are forfeiting two home games, but the Yankees are wearing home uniforms both times.

    Unrealized Stadiums

    This is a proposed Bills stadium from 1970 that reportedly would have also hosted baseball. I don’t know if they ever actually paid, but the county had a $60M lawsuit judgment against them at one point for backing out of an agreement to build. This was in a town east of the city instead of the site south of the city that we ended up getting. As a point on a map, it would have been nice for it to be closer to Rochester and Syracuse, but I don’t see how the actual infrastructure around this stadium would be anything near what we ended up with.
  4. This Raiders situation is starting to feel like when we joke about passing the hat around the CCSLC to buy an arena football team or something.

    I tried using the "game" on the app a couple of times, but it just doesn't seem to be keeping up with the live action at all. Neat idea, though. Fun to hear Mike Martz talk about taking his QB out right before he throws an INT.

    NHL 2018-19

    It pains me to say it, but this could use some electric blue(preferably) or volt. It's all night and no lightning as is.

    So is it confirmed that the Canucks are celebrating their 50th anniversary next season? I hope the Sabres have the sense to wait until their actual anniversary season.

    Maybe this is why Yzerman left? I wouldn't blame him.
  9. Or when we built the Canadarm for the space shuttle?

    Don't blame me; I voted for Yuko.

    How long has he been the GM? If it's not the coach, then...
  12. ... which is why Gilbert Perreault wore #11 with the Sabres.

    We're getting closer to the model of officiating I've advocated for here on the boards: a ref in the press box with as much power as those on the field.

    I wish I were smart enough to go to bed after that INT.

    We made it this far without a TD... I hope we don't see some dumb last minute touchdown to steal the MVP from a kicker.

    I'm also blown away by what the women accomplished at the skills competition, but I really think it would have happened already if it were possible. In addition to the ECHL and SPHL that I mentioned before, you also have multiple hockey countries outside of NA with possibly different attitudes and their own multiple levels of competition where it could/should have happened already.

    Fresno Grizzlies unveil new look

    I'd like every logo better without the claw marks.

    2020 Election Logos/Branding Thread

    You're right there. Even if it's not strictly the logo, good design in the campaign can help instill confidence. I'm not sure, though... did Obama really change the game, or did he just have a really effing good logo? Gretzky is probably the greatest ever, but I don't think he changed the way the game is played. I think design is simply a bigger part of life nowadays. Computer talk used to be much more about the nuts and bolts, whereas now it's much more about how slick the box it comes in is.

    2020 Election Logos/Branding Thread

    Well, there's a central question that I can't answer... If you stick to RWB, are you being more presidential, or are you just blending in with the crowd? If you try something else, is it good to stand out, or are you too far afield? Or is the design often irrelevant, and we're nerds thinking about this too much? So setting that aside, I do actually like Kamala Harris's logo. I think it has energy and warmth. It's very different from what you're used to seeing, so maybe that's good. Or bad. Or I don't know. Warren's is also pretty solid. The mint (money?) green feels like an interesting end-around into a 'Murican color scheme without going straight RWB. It reminds me of how the 90s Capitals with the bronze and bronze/copper patina colors still felt appropriate for DC while eschewing RWB. I don't go for color horoscopes like purple representing wisdom, but I think the mint is cool, calming, and stable. Most of the others are IMO are just in that unremarkable category; not sure if I've seen any truly bad ones this year. Julián and Pete are obviously avoiding their last names. Delaney has the beginning of a good logo, but I don't think there's much there as is.

    Hmm... people with large salaries and few geographic restrictions choose to live in Southern California. Well I never!

    Is this a real question? As bass ackward as hockey can be, I feel like if the women were up to it, there'd be players catching on in a league like the SPHL or ECHL and working their way up if they were successful. With 20 years of women's hockey in the Olympics and multiple years of multiple professional women's leagues to showcase the game, is it really possible in 2019 that a pool of NHL talent is being ignored because of cooties?

    Ugh. Nike will probably lean into JET BLACK, even though it has nothing to do with the planes.
