  1. I've always wanted to do a made up water polo league! Great idea! I coach and play water polo in Chicago. I really think that California could honestly be its own conference. California could easily have 5 teams with how popular it is out there. I don't know how big water polo is in Vancouver, Boston, or Carolina. Texas, Michigan/Ohio/Pennsylvania, or another team in Florida would be better markets for teams.
  2. The Chicago Flag concept does look good, however I really feel that the Chicago Flag is overplayed now. The Chicago Flag is slapped on all types of products now in the city. If I see one more person with four Chicago Stars tattooed on them I'm going to barf. And the people buy these products and getting inked up are probably from Naperville. They also probably do not know that each stripe, star, and star point have a meaning, and why Chicago is the Windy City. There are a ton of symbols unique of the Chicago Flag that can represent Chicago. Personally, I like the Municipal Device, or sometimes known as the Chicago River Symbol. Sorry for the rant! I really do like the red kit a lot!
  3. Big Ten Shades of Red Indiana Maryland Minnesota Nebraska Ohio State Rutgers Wisconsin OYGBV Illinois Iowa Michigan Michigan State Northwestern Penn State Purdue
  4. The Big Ten for football. Great Lakes Division Michigan Michigan State Northwestern Penn State Wisconsin Purdue Heartland Division Ohio State Iowa Illinois Nebraska Minnesota Indiana the teams rivalry game in the other division matches their number on the list
  5. They could of used some geographic names for the divisions. Midwest, Heartland, Great Lakes etc are all vague names that are representative of where Big Ten schools are and would better represent the divisions than Leaders and Legends.
  6. i think it would be cool if they used a six point star for their chamionship on the jeserys.

  8. UIUC students are planning their own thing on facebook to honor the chief.... Information Event Info Name: CHIEF SHIRT DAY Tagline: If the THE CHIEF is to be retired, let's make it hurt. Host: UIUC Type: Causes - Rally Time and Place Date: Wednesday, February 21, 2007 Time: 12:00am - 11:55pm Location: EVERYWHERE Description Sunday, Feb. 18th: BLACK OUT Wear black to the game. Wednesday, Feb. 21st: ORANGE & BLACK Wear black UNDER your orange, and take off orange shirts AFTER halftime. (Thanks Justin, I like that idea better too.) Wear all the Chief apparel you can next Wednesday, Feb 21st. PLEASE INVITE everyone you know, and let's really do this. Wednesday is Illinois' last basketball game at home this year, vs Michigan. Everyone should show the greatest respect at the game and elsewhere. There should be no booing at the game, just support for the team and however you wish to express your displeasure with the banning of the Chief. Black shirts DO NOT discount our support for the basketball team. Please don't take the blackout for something it's not. This group's primary intent is to raise awareness on WEDNESDAY: as many people wearing CHIEF apparel as possible across campus.

  10. this was on yahoo....... NHL contemplating idea of cutting divisions from six to four PIERRE LEBRUN December 22, 2006 (CP) - Right now it's only a concept and may not even make it to a vote next month at the NHL's board of governors, but the league is floating the idea of cutting its divisions down from six to four, sources confirmed to The Canadian Press on Friday. The massive overhaul, which features the Atlanta Thrashers and Columbus Blue Jackets switching conferences, was discussed Wednesday in New York when governors representing all six divisions met with commissioner Gary Bettman to try and find a solution to the ongoing schedule conflict. Over the next few weeks, governors and GMs will be asked to look it over and decide whether it's worth a vote. Public reaction, especially in the media, will also factor in to whether it makes it to a vote at the board of governors meeting in Dallas next month. The concept goes as follows: -Four divisions instead of six. The Eastern and Western Conferences would each have eight-and seven-team divisions; -Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Anaheim, Los Angeles, San Jose, Colorado and Phoenix would make up the eight-team division in the Western Conference. The seven-team division would feature Detroit, Chicago, St. Louis, Nashville, Dallas, Minnesota and Eastern Conference newcomer Atlanta; -The new divisions in the East: one would feature Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto, Buffalo, Boston, Pittsburgh and Western Conference alumni Columbus. The other division would include the New York Rangers, New York Islanders, New Jersey, Philadelphia, Washington, Tampa Bay, Florida and Carolina. The Caps rejoining their old Patrick Division rivals was a popular sentiment at Wednesday's meeting; -The divisions would be more sensitive to time zones with a huge consideration to TV start times. More games in the same time zone means less games at odd start times for viewers. This would also cut down on travel; -The top four playoff seeds would come from the top two teams in each division. Four wild-card playoff berths would then be battled among the teams with the next highest point totals. So it would remain eight playoff teams in each conference. A source stressed Friday that the idea still needs to marinade among team executives over the next few weeks. One GM contacted Friday by CP didn't even know about it yet. What remains to be seen is how the Thrashers and Jackets will feel about switching conferences. For Columbus, it appears to make sense to be in the same division as Ohio-based Pittsburgh - although who knows where the Penguins end up next season. Thrashers general manager Don Waddell said the proposal was news to him. "We have not yet been approached by anyone associated with the league regarding switching divisions and conferences," Waddell said in a statement. "Therefore, we'll defer to the league and will not comment until the appropriate time. "I will say that our organization is pleased with the current situation and our alignment in the Eastern Conference." okay, last time i looked on a map, pittsburgh was in penn. and not in OHIO....wtf????
  11. its the windy city because our politics is full or hot air, not because of the weather... as for the logo, it isnt bad, but its hard to say "chicago" with just one skyscraper.
  12. too much like petco, comerica, citizens bank, great american, and somewhat new busch for me. HOK has gone from predictable retro to predictable modern with the split upper deck again. nothing special...

    Since there is a large German population in Cincinnati, maybe the Reds can add gold to their red and black jerseys for Mayday (May 1st). Mayday The feast of Saint Philip and Saint James, this festive holiday has had pagan connotations ever since the missionaries introduced Christianity to the Germans. The night before, men and women roam the village in bizarre masks as devils and animals, demanding food, drink, and mocking their hosts. Pretty girls are adorned with colorful ribbons and games abound. Or Zinzinnati Oktoberfest in September... actually, oktoberfest in germany is held 16 days before the first sunday in october. so its mostly in september.
