  1. And to think I was pretty excited about the game 5's....
  2. Still graces the sign of Orso's on Wells
  3. The quality New Era has been pumping out is inexcusable. Last Christmas my sister got me a Cubs 59Fifty because I needed a new one (had the same hat for around 5-6 years). She bought a discounted 2018 playoffs one, and I was shocked at how poorly it was made. I went from constantly wearing my Cubs hat around to never wearing it, until I bought an older 59Fifty off eBay.
  4. I really need a Bears win tonight and for Mitch to start coming into his this season like he did in the Bills or Bucs game last year. Anyone know who is going to be in on the WGN broadcast of the game tonight? I’m more inclined to watch it than ESPN’s.
  5. I think the PECOTA prediction being that low had to do with an aging pitching staff who was not going to make it through the season. I agree with you the front office needs to act, what looked like a 10 year window of dominance 5 years ago looks like it’s closing. Guys haven’t panned out, signings have been awful. Maybe missing the playoffs will be good long term so they can’t use the excuse “we’ve been to the playoffs 5 years in a row” after being bounced from the WC game. I think Maddon does need to go though. He’s a good manager for a young team and building a culture, but the Cubs aren’t young anymore and cemented a culture. Maddon’s done, I’m interested to see who they bring in (if they go outside of the organization and we don’t get Mark Loretta: manager) to lead this team next year.
  6. Man, the Cubs really broke my heart this past week. This sucks man. Think I'll be going full heel and root for the Yankees this post season.
  7. Well, it’s gotten to the point where every game for the Cubs has become a must win. They control their own destiny here. I went to the game tonight and I never thought I’d be so frustrated about a Cubs team that continuously is in contention. With the Brewers on this run, things aren’t looking to hot. 11 games left, down to the wire.
  8. Bonus AM News station's jingle
  9. I’d ditch the United States wordmark on the away and use the USA wordmark on the alt. United States is too long. Other than that I think both Israel and the US look great!
  10. Was able to snag this Bears starter striker jacket off LetGo for $30. Had to drive an hour out to the northwest Chicago burbs, but I think it was worth it. Love it

    **TEMPLATES**

    Anyone have a nice basketball svg template? I've been searching all over and can't find one.
  12. My college roommate went to St. Pats, I’m from the Southside and went to another Chicago Catholic League school so I love this. agreed with the points above, the numbers on the jersey are way to modern if you’re trying to invoke a classic look. A white jersey with a script instead of the monogram might look good.
  13. That heritage alternate is beautiful, and I’m loving the word marks. Great work as always! However, the eye and mouth on the primary mark might look better with a few tweaks, but it is still a great package
  14. Pretty hard when the Dodgers are on this unprecedented run. The Padres are a game over .500 and the Rockies are 3, and even then they're both double digits behind LA, who's run differential is at 105, the Cubs have the second best run diff in the NL at 56. The only thing I can see being the Dodger's Achilles heel is their bullpen, who posted something like a 7+ ERA last week

    So, I made two mock ups of the away. One with the Lubalin and one with the Banks era script. The Lubalin is starting to grow on me
