  1. ^I agree it'll be close between the A's and the Rays, but I can't see the Marlin's getting digs any time soon.
  2. ^Well I expected a change, but I see what your saying on the event as a whole. Shame, but this new project brings more to the area thank just a spike in takings. BTW this Creek thing on the old Trop site looks interesting.
  3. I like it. It looks 1000 times better than the Trop. The new downtown area looks nice too. I agree with the comments on the wiring system, not perfect, but then its another quirk to the park, just like every other park has its own features. 2 questions: Anyone know if Tropicana will take up the naming rights? Perhaps "(New) Tropicana at Al Lang"? and I wonder what impact this will have on the St. Petersburg Grand Prix?
  4. That is the general theme for the new entrance to Disney's California Adventure.
  5. Well it probably won't happen to Autopia as "Carsland" (working title) is expected to open at Disney's California Adventure by 2012 with "Radiator Springs Racers" (based on EPCOT's Test Track) plus a Luigi's flying saucer type ride and a Mater and the Tractors tea-cup affair. You think that they will get permission to display the Ferarri logo everywhere for that Luigi themed ride? I would imagine it'll be 'regular' Luigi rather than 'Ferrari Fan Luigi' Theres already a Luigi on display in Paris (complete with FIAT badge) so they've got the licensing sewn up. eeewww never though of him that way...
  6. I believe it was one of the contenders. There's already a 'Walt Disney Studios Park' in Paris (which did have the city under the marquee during construction but was then removed before opening) so they could've gone with 'Walt Disney Studios' Florida. Well it probably won't happen to Autopia as "Carsland" (working title) is expected to open at Disney's California Adventure by 2012 with "Radiator Springs Racers" (based on EPCOT's Test Track) plus a Luigi's flying saucer type ride and a Mater and the Tractors tea-cup affair.
  7. Wow I'm happy to see positive comments here about the logo. On some (Disney) boards I've seen it berated. You guys are the ones in the know when it comes to good graphics, so I'll happily take you're opinions. I like it myself, its got the the right amount of "Hollywood-that-never-was" class. Talk is of seasonal names next year.. "Disney's Horrorwood Studios" and "Disney's Hollyday Studios" for their respective holidays.
  8. Why is it every time I get into a sport there's a "strike" scrapping the season? It happened with MLB in '94 and NHL a couple years back... I'm gonna get a complex. ... Seriously though - real shame for the sport and the fans.
  9. I hope that never happens... Can you imagine: Tropicana Rays *shudder*
  10. Its not a good start to the franchise is it?
  11. MLB: I got interested around the time of the Marlins expansion, but it never really clicked, until 1998 when the Arizona Diamondbacks arrived and 2001 cemented that choice. NHL: I'm currently a fair weather fan in need of a franchise to root for. NLL: Portland Lumberjax - Something just appealed to me (in spite of the horrendous spelling ) plus the idea of the ownership was something different.
  12. Could they be having second thoughts on what they chose?
  13. Wow those are great! The first one was exactly what I had in mind!
  14. Well reading through the past couple pages I was getting concerned that the new logo would be London 2012 bad, but instead its more of a "hmm could be worse" for me.
  15. Anyone have suggestions of fonts that were frequently used in advertising and signage in the '60's?
  16. Agreed if they'd been penalised then I think then sport would be on the brink of self-imploding (at least in the UK). I wouldn't be surprised if Bernie pulled some strings to prevent it from happening - he's got to protect his investment after all!
  17. I agree the first one is better for the use of the Stingray - but it looks too basic (and I hate the triangular back) I think the new one is an upgrade in quality.
  18. The words total followed by BS spring to mind. Absolute joke!
  19. Really? Wow didn't know that. Guess it keeps up the tradition of recycling old logos!
