  1. Felt similarly when I found a Parramanta Eels shirt/jersey in a Thunder Bay 2nd hand shop. (similar to this but with 3/4 sleeves) and a pair of Rio Grande Killer Bees blankets in a local thrift store.
  2. Believe me I don't, and I don't for any sport. For my first sport hockey - I don't watch that many NHL games on television, but still believe the NHL season lasts to long. Stanley cup should be wrapped up by May long weekend. To quote Ron MacLean's sarcastic comment at the NHL Awards ceremony on June 25, 1998: "It's hard to believe the season's already over"
  3. Haven't watched cricket but have no idea how it works. For me: Basketball is just an orgy of points - needs more defence. Don't mind watching some baseball games in person but most of the time it is a chore to watch a whole MLB game on t.v. Also, WAY too many MLB games in a season. Golf and Racing are of less interest to me than watching paint dry. Oddly enough, though I've never curled I do like to watch curling (which my wife refers to as "nap t.v.")
  4. Not likely to be of interest to most (or all??) here, but picked up a jacket at a local thrift store for $10. It's the team I played bantam for way back in 1981/82. Jacket looks old; could it be as old as that? If I had to guess, probably not quite.
  5. Isn't going to be a local or regional team for me in any football league no matter how crazy they get. Closest CFL or NFL is around 7 plus hours away. I'll stick with the CFL on television. Might check out newer leagues if readily available on t.v.; might watch part of a NFL game while in a sports bar.
  6. All sports except, I suppose, baseball - ties allowed, no OT except in playoffs, and certainly no shootouts. NFL - adopt CFL time rules (interval between plays, timeouts, etc.) NHL - only one last team allowed to make 32 teams maximum. while we are at it chop back the regular season to 70 games. Let's wrap this thing up no later than May long weekend. NBA - whatever you can do to add more defence to the game. open to ideas. CFL - let's get that 10th team. MLB - if I wasn't worried about being lynched I'd say cut back their number of regular season games also.
  7. Announced in 2015 apparently but just happening now in my city (Thunder Bay - Northwestern Ontario, Canada). Some have been changed over; some still to be changed. Mac's (which were mainly Mike's Mart and Mike's Milk in my region prior to that https://www.mymacs.ca/node/768) is being changed over to Circle K. Map show in September 2018 article obvious wrong for my area of Ontario at least. https://globalnews.ca/news/4431582/macs-convenience-stores-circle-k-rebrand/ looks like owl logo came after a cat logo https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mac's_Convenience_Stores
  8. Won this at thrift store auction - only 2nd bidder in the binder with $20. No one that showed up for the in person auction bothered to bid on it. With 50% sale came to under $10 total for the shirt and cap. By quirk of fate last name on jersey matches my one cousin's last name.
  9. TVO (although it is provincial) would likely be the closest to PBS

  11. For the Sabres, my choice is to buy very little post 1996 except for vintage lines. Any 'secondary' teams I usually drop my casual fandom if they change to sub par logos/uniforms.
  12. Only other ideas that come to mind are a silhouette of a bomber plane [ possibly dropping bombs or football(s)]. or WWII style plane bomb : with W inside it ? (maybe with football image inside ???) or Updating/modifying their old lightning W logo (with either instead incorporating the 'vintage' lightning or going a different way)
  13. If you are think or going a different way with the helmet logo, this may be some inspiration. back in 1961 Winnipeg had the W on the arms and a lightening bolts plus numbers on the helmet:
