  1. Congrats, it sucks. The LA specifically sucks hard. The gradient is awful. Gradient on logos is always awful. If it was just the Ram head, it’d be okay, but just that. They know that if they put that horn on the helmet we’ll riot, right?
  2. Want to share that research? I'm looking for anything to believe in at this point.
  3. National No. 1 Mater Dei led national No. 2 St. John Bosco by 23 points, 28-5, in the first half of the CIF-Southern Section Division 1 title game on Saturday. Then Clemson-committed QB DJ Uigalelei and Bosco scored 39 unanswered points and pulled out the win over Alabama-committed QB Bryce Young and Mater Dei, 39-34, to win the CIF-SS title. Reigning national champion Mater Dei beat Bosco in regular season Trinity League play, and this was the fourth straight Division 1 championship game they've played against each other, with Mater Dei winning the previous two. Bosco will play De La Salle in the California State Open Division Championship on Dec. 14 at 8 p.m. at Cerritos College. In other CIF-SS Divisions, I covered San Juan Hills defeating Loyola in Division 4 for the Stallions first CIF-SS football title. For any of you state of Washington folk in the thread, Joey Hobert, a Washington State commit and the son of former Washington QB Billy Joe Hobert, scored on a TD run, returned a fumble for TD and blocked an extra point. Go ahead and give that story in the link a look if you'd like. There's plenty of other links to features I did during the week leading up to the game.

  4. I believe the term is... *shudders* ..."Halo Honk"
  5. Southern California is your baseball capital today: NL MVP: Cody Bellinger AL MVP: Michael Nelson Trout
  6. Isn't this the truth. This has never been more apparent to me than this NFL season. I have a smart TV with all the proper apps downloaded (and my parents DirecTV info inputted, because they won't use the streaming). If the game is on FOX, NBC, ESPN or out of market (Sunday Ticket)? I can watch every game in a breeze. Not to mention easily pulling up local Angels/Ducks games on Fox Sports Go or even baseball playoffs on TBS/FOX. Basically, if any game is on any TV channel, I can find some way to stream it. Except CBS, because they're still slaving away on CBS All Access. No, I don't want to watch Star Trek prequel series. No, I don't want to watch your Good Wife spin-off. No, I don't need NCIS on demand. I just want to watch one football game, which is free on TV otherwise. Why does literally every other outlet have a way for me to just put in the cable/satellite info and stream whatever is just on TV, except you CBS? Like yeah, the B/R app sucks, but at least if a game is live on TBS/TNT, I can just open the TBS/TNT apps and watch TV. CBS doesn't even give you the choice. $15 a month or GTFO? I guess I'm getting out then.
  7. Oh, completely. Those in the administration there, including a few in the athletics department re: recruiting, liked to trumpet that Long Beach State is the only Division 1 university with the word "Beach" in its name. So they could advertise themselves as this SoCal beach university, and its like... well, no. Yes, Long Beach is on the water, and yes, Long Beach has a harbor, but do people in Long Beach even go to the beach in Long Beach? I've seen more people on the "beach" on the sides of the jetty near Naples than on the actual ocean beach. Again, as someone that did play-by-play and PA announcing for a LBSU sports team for two years, trying to call the team "the Beach" out loud is just all sorts of terrible.
  8. I understand the homage of the Dixie Flyers, and I agree it'd be silly to not go all the way with that tribute. Otherwise, you'rd just be the yellow-blue Canadiens or Panthers. However, I think the vintage-inspired sabretooth head logo is pretty damn good. It's kind of a waste that it's relegated to a shoulder logo. I know its front-and-center on t-shirts and hats, but it's worthy of a primary crest position. Should the Preds make an alternate jersey going forward, I'd love to see the vintage sabretooth get play as a jersey crest and not just a shoulder patch. (Like, if/when the Preds get around to their 25th anniversary, make a jersey with that instead of bringing back the mustard/3-D sabretooth.)
  9. Small update, from the Long Beach State men's basketball season-preview press release: "Long Beach State has officially changed the nickname for all sports other than baseball to the Beach with the NCAA. Please do not refer to LBSU basketball as the 49ers." So, at least for this season, all non-baseball Long Beach State sports teams are officially "The Beach," baseball is still the "Dirtbags" and the "49ers" are dead.
  10. Deadspin's corporate overlord G/O Media published some statistics to back their argument and prove their "stick to sports" mantra was valid. Turns out those numbers were, um, wrong.
  11. Barstool dancing on the grave of Deadspin. So, forgive me if I don't feel like being on the side of El Presidente.
  12. With Barry Petchesky fired yesterday, many other Deadspin staffers (the whole Deadspin staff?) followed him out the door and resigned today. Looks like Deadspin is dead. Long live Deadspin. EDIT: Not dead, but at least severely diminished: https://awfulannouncing.com/online-outlets/many-deadspin-staffers-resign-in-wake-of-barry-petchesky-firing.html?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter
  13. What if I just think the uniforms aren't good? There really isn't a basis to that beyond my own opinion on what makes a good uniform, but yet, here we are with an entire message board dedicated to such discussion. I've even provided examples as to my thought process in previous posts that you chose to not comment on, but that's you. You're allowed to not like my opinion. That's what we're all here for. This has nothing to do with not liking the Clippers, truly. What it does have to do with is that mediocre history. And what it has to do with presenting a new uniform is I don't think these uniforms are good representations of the Clippers and their overall aesthetic. As you've said, they're trying something new and going a different direction, and all that is fine. But like I said in the other posts, sometimes it works (like the Miami Vice unis) and sometimes it doesn't (the Pacers' Hickory High jerseys, or the Clippers alternates last year). This one, it doesn't work for me because it doesn't ring true to the Clippers, their identity, or how they represent their small slice of Los Angeles. It's a hollow attempt to be something their not. I never said anything about not being tough, and I never said they don't represent LA. Just that if they want to try and represent this part of LA, that part of LA isn't going to rep them. They'll rep the Lakers, through and through. And I'm just a guy that's lived in Southern California my entire life, interacted with people all over these communities, and seen the Clippers up close in this market for nearly 30 years. But, what do I know?
  14. Scared? Nah. I recognize the Clippers have a strong team this year, and it'll be a fight. But scared of the Clippers? No. Especially not in the context we're actually talking about in this unifrom/identity/representing the city discussion. Even if the Clippers are good, even if the Clippers were to make the NBA Finals, even if the Clippers beat the Lakers to do it, my points about their identity would still all stand. I realize I popped off pretty aggressively in the first post, but I've backed up all my thoughts in subsequent posts.
