  1. Omaha recently sold the naming rights of the downtown arena (formerly named CenturyLink Center) to CHI Health, meaning it's now the CHI Health Center. Which sounds like a hospital.
  2. A friend from Vegas said he believes the Knights third jersey to be red. That's his own speculation based on conversations with team store employees and merchandise trends for VGK, so nothing concrete, but certainly interesting.
  3. This is perhaps the most creative concept series I've seen during my 10+ years on this message board. Everything is so incredibly thought out and intentional, right down to the last detail. Amazing work.
  4. Des Moines and Omaha don't work if they keep the current system in place and start the season in February. It's the first of March and still supposed to snow again, I guarantee nobody would be attending football games in this weather. Also, Omaha's only true football stadium belongs to a high school. I assume any new team would play at the baseball stadium again, but after the Nighthawks and Mammoths failed I don't see much support for future teams.
  5. I am absolutely in love with the St Louis Cardinals identity and want to follow the team solely for that reason. However, I've always disliked the team and their fans and there's no way around it.
  6. Yeah, the red cap looks better. They've worn in with the white uniforms a few times.
  7. Not that I'm advocating for a switch to this particular front-paneled hat, but the red really brings a nice splash of color to the Twins otherwise muddy uniforms.
  8. We, in this community, tend to forget that generally speaking the common person prefers to purchase neutral colored clothing and accessories. Having worked in sports retail I can tell you most people tend to purchase caps based on the base color, and tend to stick with something safe, such as black. It was very difficult to sell the Marlins orange caps, while the black caps were fairly popular. Of course, these days the throwback colors sell best, but that's considered a special circumstance because those caps aren't available full time. In short: it's easier/safer to sell standard color caps. Such as black. That being said, the Marlins absolutely need to switch to blue caps. Now.
  9. I've been seeing Fleet Farm for nearly 20 years and just realized the logo is made up of 2 F's.
  10. I was just coming to post that.
  11. I'm shocked by all the sudden dislike of the Jets uniforms, a side from the Nike template errors. Are people just bored? Their current look is essentially "the look" for the franchise. Change it to Kelly green and you're set.
  12. Baylor is an exception. They use metallic gold in football, yellow in baseball, and neon yellow in basketball.
  13. The Twins were planning to introduce hats featuring the logo from last year's Players Weekend caps, TC inside the outline of Minnesota. Evidently they chose not to follow through with those plans. The logo was supposed to appear on the BP/ST caps as well as the St Paddy's Day caps.
  14. I really wish the Lightning would use bright yellow. Pair it with black or blue, I don't care. But play up the bold lightning color idea. The ASG stuff was close, start with that.
  15. Just yesterday I noticed the delta logo forms an A and an M.
  16. The logo and general theme of the brand is fantastic. The helmet is great, though I would've used different colors. The uniforms are bad. They're certainly on the right track but the execution is lacking.
  17. In 2011 the Twins designated the cream throwbacks as the primary home option to honor Harmon Killebrew. In August the team made the M caps the primary option because of a hot streak while wearing them, creating this odd mismatch of a look:
  18. Nebraska football switched from gray facemasks to red for the 1982 Orange Bowl. They've been red ever since.
  19. The North Stars used the logo that would coincide with their move to Dallas at center ice during the last season before the rebrand to black. There's a better photo out there somewhere but I can't find it at the moment...
  20. It makes me so sad that brewery branding is really cool, yet the team named after the industry doesn't have cool branding. Regardless of how the glove logo is used, I wish they'd come up with a separate logo that evokes the concept of "a brewery's baseball team."
  21. The split color word mark on the road jersey makes it seem like they literally couldn't decide if they wanted to be red or black. Red lettering carries over from the home, but could leave a black cap feeling out of place. The sock and undershirt pairings are also odd, but perhaps that'll be different on the field.
  22. For a long time I thought Oklahoma's OU logo was a Q. This was the logo I grew up seeing:
  23. I just now noticed the eye. I always figured there was supposed to be an eye in that shape but never really focused on it until this post.
  24. As a kid I learned about sports teams via trading cards and collectible helmets that my dad gave me. I'd collect trading cards and organize them by team. Every now and then I'd ask my dad about a certain team and he'd tell me they no longer existed, shattering my understanding of reality. I remember getting really excited about the California Seals and then learning they were long gone. I constantly drew logos of teams from each league, which were no doubt inaccurate due to my misunderstanding of relocation and such. My dad had this NFL standings board with the little magnetic helmets. I used that to learn the NFL teams. The orange helmets faded to a very light shade, almost pink. So I grew up thinking the Browns and Bengals wore light pink helmets. I couldn't tell the two teams apart until I finally saw the Bengals on TV and fell in love with their tiger striped uniforms. I remember asking why the Colts logo was a U, thinking the Oilers logo was a power line, and I thought it was funny Pittsburgh's team was named after thieves (Stealers).
