  1. C with little triangles pointing north and south above and below it?
  2. It took me a second for the light to go on, but it did. Where did I remember Charlotte Wilder's name from? Oh, she's friends with PFT Commenter and Dan Katz and had them on whatever show it is she does, which made Deadspin's Laura Wagner say that she is a traitor and disappointment to all women who work in sports: Which means that this whole article is nothing but an excuse for yet another chapter of America's favorite nerd fight, Deadspin v. Barstool. You may think it was the really mega-popular prom court kids who in adulthood never got over high school social dynamics. You'd be wrong: it's all the high-achieving NHS/application-padders in the next tier down who are obsessed with defining who's in and who's out and keep on doing it all their lives, and where do those kids end up? At this big long helldesk, apparently!
  3. I was thinking one of the animal friends from Donkey Kong Country, like Rambi the Rhino and Enguarde the Swordfish. But how can that make you like the logo less? I don't have any room left to think less of it than I already do.
  4. The R and the A show that she doesn't cut corners.
  5. Yeah, there's a lot to like except for the NCSC cap and the general premise of a shared Winston-Salem/Greensboro team in the majors. The Carolinas as twins is a clever way to keep the name and refashion it, and I like the underlined C and more traditional ovoid C equally. Overall, I'm glad we didn't lose Minnesota, and especially glad the Twins didn't become the Carolina MaxxHoggz or some other '90s name as ghastly as "Virginia Fury." Haha, look at the map where the stadium would be! Boww-ba-bowwmp, won't you take me to, boww-ba-bowwmp
  6. It's certainly novel to see stark black/white and what looks like condensed athletic block, but I'm a little unsure of the semiotics at play here. It feels awfully...forceful? EDIT: oh, of course, how did I miss it, Oakland Raiders for America.
  7. Design so good, it makes my calves cramp.
  8. He was only off by 100 points on the hue-saturation-value scale, lay off
  9. Matt Duchene seems to be on the Ryan O'Reilly plan of making teams worse but then compiling points on them.
  10. On the first day, baseball was invented. On the second day, people wrote "could this be the end of baseball?"
  11. Quite. Players can't call time, they can only request that the umpire call time, which is at the umpire's discretion.
  12. Pace of play can be largely ameliorated by, when players ask for time, telling them "no." Seems like a better initial plan of attack than taking ten days' worth of gate receipts away to be more like the NBA.
  13. If worse comes to worst they can move to Boston
  14. Gonna have to ask you to elaborate on this one here
