    Cincinnati Reds: Time For A Change?

    I do consider their number font gimmicky. I can't think of a better word for it. They're going out of their way to portray an olde-timey look, and it comes off as anything but - especially since they added an outline and shadow around it. Ironically, a plain font with shadow might have looked more olde-timey. There's no need for them to force it. They are the oldest team - they don't need to pretend that they are. Everyone seems to love the BRM uniforms, however I'm not a big fan of the white C. I know there's history behind it, but it just seems '70s to me (again, I know it was around before then.) I'd like to see the Reds in cream and red. I don't consider the cream "gimmicky" - it looks great on the Giants - and I think it'd look great with red, as long as they don't use white accents. Not sure if the white C on the cap would clash or not - that's an advantage that the Giants have going for them.

    USA-Mexico-Canada Joint Bid for 2026 World Cup

    Ok, I was gonna say they have way more than required beds for any event, and there’s currentky multiple hotel towers either under construction or breaking ground soon. Not sure why they’d only commit 35%.

    No need to. I know more than them about what should go on their rings. If anything, they should have deferred to me.

    Lack of hotels is Philly's major issue? Or am I reading that wrong.

    At this point we need a separate subforum just for these ridiculous minor league promotions.

    Atypical and Defunct Uniform Suppliers of Note

    Eagle made Flyers sweaters for a few years in the '80s. Also, Mitchell and Ness made Eagles, Athletics, and Phillies on-field uniforms for decades.

    USA-Mexico-Canada Joint Bid for 2026 World Cup

    Philadelphia is hurt by being right in between NY and DC - literally only 90 minutes rom NY. If you were going to pick two of the three, obviously you’re going with NY and DC. Once you settle on that, is it worth the effort to go with another site that’s basically in the same area? Probably not, considering that there are other “good enough” candidates in the eastern time zone that aren’t on top of each other.

    Say hello to the Delmarva Scrapple

    I’ve actually never had pork roll, and people look at me like I have two heads when I say that. Scrapple, when cooked well done, is great - AS LONG AS YOU DONT THINK ABOUT WHAT IT IS. I’m typing this from the Melrose Diner in South Philly, smelling the scrapple on my neighbor’s plate, and while it’s not making me hard, there’s definitely a little movement happening.

    Thanks for the “ummmmm” - I appreciate the pause before correcting me. If thats the case then its its pretty dumb to put on the ring. The first I heard it was when Malcom Jenkins was doing a locker speech either immediately after wentz got hurt or the following week. Otherwise it’s too generic to have enough meaning to memorialize.

    CCSLC Championship Ring Thread

    The old '80s Eagle with its spread wings would look sweet in front of the trophy - better than the modern logo, though I do love the way the midnight green looks on these. Who knows - in 3 or 4 seasons when they're getting their 4th or 5th ring, maybe they'll be back in fauxback uniforms.

    Regarding the Super Bowl Champion Eagles’ rings: 1. They were presented at the ECW Arena! 2. “We all we got, we all we need” was basically them saying that they don’t need Wentz or the other injured guys. It’s totally just innocent motivation for the guys that were still playing, but kinda sucks for Wentz since his ring literally points out that he wasn’t playing

    Fixed yours too. Again, accuracy is important. Please do better next time. A few interesting things about the rings: 1. They were presented at the ECW Arena! 2. “We all we got, we all we need” was basically them saying that they don’t need Wentz or the other injured guys. It’s totally just innocent motivation for the guys that were still playing, but kinda sucks for Wentz since his ring literally points out that he wasn’t playing.

    MLB changes 2018?

    Good gods. That 6 is atrocious. Embarrassing. The sleeves and belt are bad too. Those are so close to being a great uniform, but so far too.
