  1. I think the Brewers home and away look right now is the best they've had. With navy. And gold. Not Navy and yellow, not blue and yellow. Not Ball in glove with updated colors. This exact thing.
  2. I agree. It's one of my favorite looks in baseball.
  3. Cincinnati (also Under Armour) is getting new jerseys this year. Judging by the updates to the football uniforms, they'll be pretty minor. No unveiling date yet.
  4. As a Grizzlies fan, I was happy to get Allen back in the Conley deal. He could be a good player and he can be fun to watch. But I'm already tired of him.
  5. A's, Astros, Giants, Dodgers, Angels, Tigers, Brewers, and Reds wore the font at one time or another.
  6. I thought the term Franchisee might work, but then the term "Atlanta Hawks franchisee" makes it seem like there's multiple Atlanta Hawks organizations running around, when maybe we should get the first one in working order (unnecessary dig at the Hawks, Yeah!). But now I think "Team shareholder" works the best. It's flows somewhat well and I can easily hear Mike Breen saying it during it. I've always thought the term "minority owner" rather than "minority team owner" sounded a little off. (My friend and I have been writing a pilot for the past few years and we've had this strange phrasing included in an episode). Also, major props to everyone for having almost two pages of a discussion around a current event, and not one person used the word "narrative". It's the little things.
  7. I guess the blueprint is an Open Cup run?
  8. As a Grizzlies fan, I'm happy for Conley, as the Jazz could be a team that makes some significant noise next year (much like Gasol going to Toronto). I'm happy to get Morant tomorrow and get the rebuild started with some good pieces. Have to figure that Korver and Crowder get dealt again/bought out?
  9. I feel like this one's pretty common knowledge at this point, but Khris Davis has .247 each of the past four seasons. The Cincinnati Reds also have a 9 game winning streak in the World Series. Sammy Sosa his 50+ home runs four times, and three of them were 60+ home run seasons. Hank Aaron never hit 50 home runs in a season, and his career high, 47, came when he was 37.
  10. The thing that bothers me the most about the Lakers' look is how inconsistent it is. I've always been a believer in that a home and away uniforms (in basketball) should follow the same template. If there's no side panels on the home, there should be none on the roads. The striping pattern is especially weird to me because the on the yellow uniforms, the stripes appear "within" the armholes, while the jersey color appears again on the outside of the stripe. While on the purple uniform, they appear on the edge. It's like they made one of those "Spot the Differences" between these two pictures. As a side note, I've always hated (too strong of a word) stripes like the ones on the yellow uniform. I'm a big fan of three even stripes on waistbands and armholes for basketball, but the jersey color should either be in the middle of the three, or not at all present - in this case purple/white/purple. Though I will give Nike credit here for not having yet another NBA team with solid stripes at the neck and armholes. That just looks lazy and uninspired.
  11. I think a lot of people were in that same boat regarding Porter. There were rumors at the time that NYRB were after Koch, and I think the team didn't want to risk losing him, so they gave him a deal that maybe Koch wasn't ready for. I think the Reds did this same thing with Bryan Price a few years ago. Some guys excel at certain positions or at certain levels, but aren't ready for more responsibility/broader success at another level or position.
  12. This sounds like Outburst! If I see the abbreviation PK today, I just assume it's for Penalty Kicks.
  13. In high school my brother would have this argument with a friend, and the friend would always say: "You can't tell me that Sterling Marlin is an athlete." Touche.
  14. For a league whose fans love to go on and on about how *organic* their team and following is, the league also loves to just be a knockoff replica of what's happening in Europe, specifically England.
  15. I just noticed the Celebrity game uniforms are the same template that the University of Buffalo wears at home. Now it's lame.
  16. I know I'm in the minority on this one, but I love everything about the current Brewers look. Navy and gold is great combination, and I'm sad the Rams have gone away from it.
  17. I thought Indiana's "IU" logo was a menorah. I was seven, not Jewish, and had no idea how many candle belonged on a menorah.
  18. FC Cincinnati's colors don't blend well with stripes like that, The colors are both two dark to be overlapping each other as shown in that concept. I wasn't really a fan of the last USL kits, as there were sublimated diamonds within orange stripes. The diamonds were darker than the usual orange and made them look brown. I really don't know what I'd prefer for "my team" but I'd know it when i see it.
  19. Yep, that was you! Dry seats sound like a much better bet.
  20. In the creepiest post of the day, I think I was sitting one row behind you and about three seats to the right.
  21. They also had a blue alternate (which didn't really fit the scheme at the time, but incorporated the original colors)
  22. Maybe it's lame, but I'd buy the Florence (KY) Freedom of the Frontier League. I interned there for a summer, and then worked as the sound guy for two years, and was some of the most fun I've ever had (despite the internship being unpaid). I have no idea how much it'd cost. I feel like it's still fun enough to own a pro team, but it'd be more of a local/community thing, which I think would be more fun. Also, it being the Frontier League, I feel like you can get away with more things marketing/production/promotion wise vs. a larger league. I might pay to renovate Cincinnati's US Bank Arena, rather than a new tax, so we could have the NCAA Tournament.
  23. I don't get the hate for the Brewers current identity (the Times New Roman number look, not all the indecision about what logo to use). It's one of my favorite in the entire league.
  24. I feel less like I'm looking at a league logo page, and more like I'm just scrolling through someone's Behance page.
  25. Well it looks like every other logo. I think they chose the 'capital lowercase U because the tail/line on the right of the U matches up the one on the left of the lowercase B to form double lines that you;d see on a road. (Someone works in marketing!)
