A little late to the party, but there's a bit of a story behind this logo.

 

A few weeks ago, my friends and I were talking about summer internships. One of them said they were going to be a videographer for the Crushers and got the position because her sister-in-law works with the team. When I asked her what her sister-in-law did, she said she designed to new logo, in which my response was "Oooohhhhh.......". 

 

My friend didn't take offense to it as she and others told her they didn't like the idea of the logo and even thought it looked dumb.

Has anyone kept track of the food? Fresno grizzlies (tacos)...3 styles too, Lehigh valley iron pigs (bacon and cheesesteaks with and without onions), Richmond flying squirrels (brunch), reading fightins (whoopie pies), Brooklyn cyclones (Coney Island franks and now pizza slices), Albuquerque isotopes (cheeseburgers). Didn't the Toledo mud hens do something with eggs vs the bacon team?

 

New York Apples (World Team Tennis)

AFC Bournemouth -- "the Cherries"

Bakersfield Jam

Denver Nuggets

Kentucky ... Kernels?

After awhile, these food promotions are going to get kinda stale.

 

Don't know if that pun was intended or not, but either way, I caught it! :P

 

To be honest, I think it got pretty stupid really quick. I can't remember which was first, but I even thought Fresno Tacos was ridiculous as soon as it came out. It all needs to stop yesterday.

Sounds like these food promotions have left a bad taste in your mouth.

The Brooklyn Cyclones are having another food-related promotion this summer, when they will for one day become the Slices.

These are the uniforms:

And the justification:

 

 

Two things:

 

1. "Brooklyn pizza"?

 

2.  This would be much better if the two teams were actually playing each other. 

 

Will Mookie throw a garbage can through the press box window after the umpire chokes out Radio Raheem in the 7th inning?   Not sayin', just sayin'

The pizza looks like it's been impaled by the Brooklyn Bridge and now its lifeless body is just laying there, waiting the the vultures to start picking at it.

The logo is over-shaded in a PDW-esque way, but I still kind of dig the look overall.

 

The Griffins wordmark, while not perfect (the G and the r connecting just seems weird), will still probably look very good on a jersey.

I dunno - that awful connector might look equally bad on a jersey.  Shame, because it's not bad apart from that.

Gwinnett Buttons is great. I'd be down for that.

 

Oliver Hardy apparently lived in Gwinnett County for a time as a kid (and grew up in various other parts of Georgia). maybe something related to him if they go a "fun" route? If Brandiose gets their hands on it, we could get a swinging Laurel and Hardy anyways, who knows.

 

Or if they're insistent on keeping Chopper, they could do "Groundhogs".

Since Brandiose is involved its going to suck in a vaguely kitschy way anyway, so really "Gwizzlies" is the way to go.

 

A team in the ABA 2000 is already using that (awful) name.
