  1. Remember the Lousville Adidas "Rainbow Guts" uniforms? They're baaack. They were worn in a win over Vanderbilt on Tuesday. https://www.cardchronicle.com/2021/5/5/22421714/capacity-upgrade-approved-for-home-louisville-baseball-games
  2. The Somerset Patriots begat the New Jersey Blasters. https://www.atlanticleague.com/news/index.html?article_id=1442
  3. I really, really hope that a north Jersey minor-league team doesn't rename itself "Disco Fries" for a promotion!
  4. +100 for the Richard Scarry reference. His illustrations were "Where's Waldo" years before that series began!
  5. These are spectacular! Kind of reminds me of when Hudson Jeans Co. came out with these.
  6. Some of the old mid-60s footage from NFL Films shows a deep red-orange rather than the bright orange most of us know and love. I wonder if that is just the development of the film, though. Still, this could be a great marketing opportunity for the Broncos -- the addition of a small bit of gold?
  7. In New York, you could have gone to Gerry Cosby's. But I also do wonder if these maaaaaaay have been a prototype for when the Rangers went to the crest in 1976?
  8. Mississippi had a nice blue state crest with a unique seven-sided shield. But they went ahead with the flag. Oh, well.
  9. If there's anything that has been taught over the last 40 years, anything can become a "fashion" item. Take, for example, the weird spread of Franklin & Marshall sweatshirts in Europe. It reminds me of the time when every souvenir shop at Quincy Market and downtown Boston had "HARVARD CREW" shirts even though you could go on over to Cambridge and get whatever Harvard gear you could ever want. Or how about the arms race amongst rappers to find the most obscure sports jersey to wear in a video? I seem to remember that the Springfield Indians became a thing after Snoop Dogg wore their jersey in 1994. Oh, and need I mention Nelly and Outkast wearing the Rainbow Guts in the early 2000s? The thing is, if there is an influencer out there in pop media who starts the trend, and if there is a clothing manufacturer who can pivot quickly to meet the demand, then you have a fashion trend. (See Tackla in 1992 for the Olympic hockey jerseys for an example of what happens when you don't pivot.)
  10. This one's easy. Reverse the nickname and the city. "Dinamo Houston." Adjust pronunciation, too. Keep the orange. But use Eastern European lettering and imagery. https://soviet-art.ru/ussr-energetics-soviet-poster-art/ (But no change from orange to red ...)
  11. On the pitch, I liked watching the league and its colors. I'm not bothered by the BFBS uniforms; after all, it's Canada. Not many 90-degree days except in rare instances. Also like seeing "Tim Horton's" on the front of a football kit.
  12. I'd say something that stars with an F, like the Edmonton Freeze. All you have to do is change that lower leg of the second E.
  13. Agreed. I like the K-Town Bobbers (the intersquad nickname of the Kenosha Kingfish) which has a cool red and powder blue scheme and I like the caps.
  14. Or how about a new trend -- the 10 or so teams who broke out some version of the Tequila Sunrise jersey last year? In 2019, we had: Fayetteville Woodpeckers, Tulsa Drillers, New Hampshire Fisher Cats, Hartford Yard Goats, Everett AquaSox, Reno Aces, Pensacola Blue Wahoos, Mobile BayBears, the Kenosha Kingfish, and two from the Round Rock Express. We also saw the Albuquerque Isotopes give away a purple Rainbow Guts jersey but on a day the team wore their Sunday reds. Adding to the Tequila Sunrise for Tequila Sunrise's sake in 2020 are the Savannah Bananas (a wooden-bat summer league team).
  15. Woof. But seriously, what's next? Aircats? Firefish? Earthkittens?
