a freeware font that is close to that would be Archery Rounded.

Boston College's font is custom-made for the athletic department. It's used for all sport-specific logos, names and numbers on all uniforms, regardless of manufacturers (except for hockey, which has "Boston College" set in the font Compacta.)

SF Archery is very close to it, and is probably the closest font found for it.

Anyone know what this font is?

I know it was used for Mission: Impossible 2, and I've seen it's now being used in some of the promotional material for Fantastic 4. I've also seen it used in other various places. I knew the name of it at one point, but now I can't remember it for the life of me.

I promise I'll write it down this time. :D

Pretty much any font you see for a pro-teams wordmark, 99 times out of 100, its a custom font.

For this year? Not sure yet. For the past 5 years it's been Aurora. With a little bit of Bank Gothic thrown in.

This is not really a font question so much as it is a hardware question regarding fonts.

I just got a new Apple notebook, and I am in the process of trashing apps I will never use, and organizing folders and such before I install Adobe CS2, Office:Mac, and my corps of applications I do use. Basically, I want to move all my non-system fonts to one folder. Is it best to place them in Library > Fonts on the hard disk, or in Library > Fonts in the User home folder, or some different place?

i place all my fonts (except system fonts) in a separate hard drive partition, just labelled 'fonts'. that way there's no confusion as to where to put them.

i have 27 folders in that partition, "A" - "Z" and "Misc", and i let Suitcase do the rest of the work.

I do the same thing as Joel does. If you don't once you get a ton of fonts, Office starts to freak out on you.
