    Texas Rangers Bid Farewell to the Ballpark With Patch in 2019

    The point was it certainly wasn’t impossible to construct a retractable roof park, even Camden style. It could’ve happened and probably just depended on what the Rangers design requirements and budget were at that time. For whatever reason, they opted for an outdoor ballpark and ignored the climate concerns at that time, a mistake Arlington taxpayers will be paying for dearly now. If if we want to go back further, here’s a 1986 proposal for a retractable roof ballpark for the White Sox.

    Safeco & Minute Maid we’re both designed just 2 years later, opened 5 years later. It could’ve happened in 1994.

    Crew announcement to usher in a new era tomorrow (along with sale to Haslem). Guessing we’ll see a modified badge then.

    Texas Rangers Bid Farewell to the Ballpark With Patch in 2019

    Should’ve been able to figure it out then. The other Texas baseball team (Astros) have been playing indoors since 1965 and just extended their lease at Minute Maid Park through 2050. Not a bad deal for a $250 million retractable roof park with a skyline view compared to the Rangers $1.2 billion correction of their past mistake (that might not even have grass). BTW, not a fan of the Jerry World style field suites Globe Life Field will have surrounding the entire infield, along with the premium seats moat. Hope that doesn’t start a new trend...
  5. The Padres weren’t the only team that teased relocation to the DC/Northern Virginia market. The Astros were also close to moving here until a referendum barely squeaked by to build The Ballpark at Union Station (now Minute Maid Park) While the article states Washington Astros, it was rumored the team name Collins had chosen was the Virginia Fury. Also, didn’t see it on the list but another relocation that almost happened was the Giants to Tampa Bay in the early 90’s. https://www.google.com/url?sa=i&source=web&cd=&ved=2ahUKEwjr_Pj7ldffAhUDX60KHSYxBxYQzPwBegQIARAC&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.washingtonpost.com%2Fnews%2Fdc-sports-bog%2Fwp%2F2017%2F11%2F02%2Fthe-washington-astros-relocating-to-d-c-was-on-the-table-in-1995%2F&psig=AOvVaw2CmhHSdf_FjsheSd7EERvP&ust=1546795919721667

    Safeco Field is now T-Mobile Park

    T-Mobile Park is a fitting name since the M’s have been phoning it in since 2004

    Full look at Rockets City Uniform. The Retro toothed Rocket logo with Chinese good luck cloud pattern on shorts is a nice touch.

    Chinese characters. Looks like the Yao branding lives on. But Wine & Gold for the Rockets City Uniforms? Was this part of a failed plan to lure Lebron?

    Tradition Evolved: Tennessee Titans Unveil New Uniforms

    I think the sword yoke would’ve worked & flowed better if the T-sword logo were on the helmet. The helmet might’ve looked better too. I never liked the flaming thumbtack primary and felt the T-Sword secondary was more emblematic of both the Titans brand and the state of Tennessee. This was a perfect opportunity to move the right logo to the forefront and they completely whiffed. The side panels feel like they were trying to force Columbia Blue in somewhere. Columbia Blue could’ve been better implemented if the shading on the jersey word mark (white & Columbia) continues to the sword yoke instead two-tone Gray, this eliminating the need for unnecessary side panels just to squeeze Columbia Blue in. In short, this is another disaster from Nike. Can’t believe they get paid to come up with this garbage.

    Changes to Titans uniforms in 2018 are 'not minor'

    Agreed. The Texans, even without much success on the football field, have established their brand. They also have one of the best helmet logos in football. Given how much the Oilers meant to that city, there should be a compromise that brings the past & present identities together. It could be as simple as the Texans keeping their logo and existing colors, but adding Columbia Blue to the color palette along with an Oilers-esqe jersey template. This old concept (not by me) bridges the identities.
