  1. I am personally fascinated by what's going on in Minor League Baseball right now, and the majority of that is due to Brandiose's reign of two-word nickname, food logo, baby cake of terror, which to be honest hasn't been all bad imo. There are things happening down in the MiLB that wouldn't have been dreamed of 20 or so years ago, and its like watching a blowout: Painful, but fun to watch it go down. So i got to thinking, with news of Brandiose sinking its toes into the minor league hockey pool, how long is it before they get their hands on the major leagues? Now if (when) in eventuality they do, they won't come at it with a Jumbo Shrimp ideal, but for fun, I'd like to think of what would happen if they did. So I'll be taking a TBD select number of teams from the MLB and making them look like they belong in the International League, starting with the Oakland Swingin' A's (Athletics).
  2. Thanks so much! The home and road's are a customized Richardson Brand United and the Cigar City alts are Phalanx.
  3. So here are two full jersey sets for the Angels and Krewe, now using a full template! More to come!
  4. Recently mildly triggered by the Lincoln Saltdogs headscratcher of a logo change, whose spiffy new dog enjoys maniacally staring into my soul, I got to wondering what some of the worst brand changes ever have been. And watching the Sox play the lowly Marlins I was reminded of this now infamous downgrade: What are some of your (least) favorites?

    Jets Uniform Concept By Kong Tom

    So, umm yeah. This still needs plenty of work, so please stop walking in here like you're blessing us with your brilliance. Also if you want people to take you seriously I suggest again, don't refer to you or your concept as a beast, great, or flawless. We'll decide that. Don't be Kanye. This is not flawless, it's better, no where near flawless. Your concept honestly looks rushed, there's white peeking through the right front sleeve, the collar shouldn't be filled in the middle like it is, and the pant stripe's slanted, technically. Like I said you've improved decently, I like the use of both of NY's greens, and the Jets word mark stripe is novel but would be much better as sleeve stripes. Also your name on back is way too big and your font is way too generic. Also ditch the quotes and give us more reasoning behind your ideas! We're all trying to help you get to the finish line, let us tell you when you're there.

    2018 MLB Season

    F/ Sox 15, Yanks 7. I don't even know what I just watched. Steve Pearce 3 HRs? 8 run 4th? They seem like less of a pretender than they did 4 hours ago. I know, I know, it's 1 game, but they beat an actual team with Brian Johnson against CC Sabathia. 3 bangers to come, this is gonna be a must watch.

    2018 MLB Season

    The Red Sox didn't lose a series in July and have Boston's best games above .500 stat since I believe the 40's and something is still indeed afoot with this team. There's just nothing concrete that proves that they're going to be able to consistently beat good teams. Mookie and J.D. are the only players to have any faith in come October, leaving out the entire starter staff, including Chris Sale who's currently on the 10 day cause his shoulder's tired from pitching while also being a tree branch. Have the boards ever seen a team this good, with some of the very best bats, gloves and arms in the game, 3 Cy Young winners on the rotation, potentially upwards of 105 wins at the 162 mark, with such a pretender status? Other than the 2016 and 2017 Red Sox of course.
  9. How many players have played with or for bonus points, won it all with two teams that hate each other? A few recents off the top of my head: Johnny Damon- Won Champ w Sox and Yanks Shaq- Lakers and Celtics, and Heat and Magic for that matter Joe Morrow - B's and Habs, Rare for a player to go from Boston to Montreal in B2B years Brandon Browner- Played in SB w/ Seahawks in 2013 then faced them w/ the Pats in 2014 (not really a rivalry but everyone hates the Patriots, so.) That's of course just a few, any other notables?

    First MLB Game Memories

    The Red Sox played the newly Devil-less Rays and I had a great view of a Coco Crisp grand slam over the Monster. Also the game where Wally pulled down Raymond's pants pretty much right in front of me.
  16. Sorry for making you guys wait even longer, but I'm finally back with a GIANT return!! Part of the reason I took a little while more was because I thought I could make this series more in-depth and authentic, so I put in quite a bit more work to get it to where I wanted. So here finally are the lit, woke, hipster-themed af SF Giants!! Uniforms for the Angels, Rockies, Krewe, and Giants, now on a fuller template, up soon. Thx guys, hope San Fran was worth the wait!
  17. So does any supermarket display guy ever.
  18. Which do you think are the blandest uniforms of the recent era? Classically designed uniforms, (e.g. Detroit Tigers home uniforms) don't count nor do distant throwbacks (e.g. Toronto Arenas). So bring on the Blaaaahhhhh.......

    Blandest Uniforms in Modern History

    I resent that. But it's getting there. *Ahem* The definition of bland is as follows, "lacking strong features or characteristics and therefore uninteresting." I also think you could exchange bland with boring. As far as I'm concerned, the scale goes in order Desperate, Unique, Simple, and Bland, and either of the middle two are fine. The new Stars and Leafs jerseys are somewhere on the bland edge of simple in my eyes, especially the Leafs because I think the longer you've been around the less room you have to make a jersey classified as boring. It's "Classic". the Stars jersey I would also define as simple, because it has enough defining aspects (unique shade of green, unforced bevel on logo, fairly unique # font) and is overall just aesthetically pleasing. A perfect example I think is the Dallas jerseys before this set, completely uninspired, with no unique or defining elements, when they already had unique jerseys before w/ the same logo set. I think @Carolingian Steamroller summed it up pretty well on pg. 2, and I agree now that the Nets are going for a certain aesthetic, and even though it could be better it's not one of the blandest in history, it's one of the simplest in history. Probably could've explained this better in my initial post, but I like seeing these discussions play out anyway.
  20. I've very recently really been thinking about picking this up again, I haven't given this series the attention it deserves, so big stuff and changes coming soon! Stay tuned!

    IHOP Name Change Coming 6/11

    Wendy's burns are getting out of hand, they're like two tweets away from yo mama jokes. *Pulls up to drive-thru speaker thing* "Yeah, I'll have a Baconator, a large coke and uhh, do you guys still have spicy nuggets?" "I don't know if we do, but I'm sure af McDoodyface's doesn't!!" "...So uh,...do you though?" "No. Will that be all?" "Yep." "Please pull to the front window."

    Crossover Series - NBA Hockey

    The Thunder's look actually translates better to hockey, somehow. Love the white gloves. Two thumbs up for everything so far.
