  1. I live in Roanoke (Salem is right next door). This is not a craft brewing hub by any stretch of the imagination. Hell, one of the big stories this week was Deschutes essentially pulling the plug on building their East Coast headquarters here.
  2. How have we gone this long without mentioning the painfully generic Miami Sharks from Any Given Sunday? Sidenote: is it me, or are all black uniforms for a Miami team a REALLY bad idea?
  3. This is less about a designer getting screwed and more about a league (I'm using that word lightly) being shady as hell. For the past year a new arena league, the National Gridiron League, has been hyping everyone here in Roanoke up for some football. The league still hasn't started (it was supposed to this month), and if you look at the logos these teams are using, I have a feeling they never will (click the link, the rundown is near the end of the video.) https://www.wsls.com/news/virginia/roanoke/new-roanoke-arena-football-league-tells-city-leaders-league-is-still-on-track EVERY SINGLE TEAM LOGO looks stolen. Even the league logo is a direct thievery of the old UFL logo!
  4. Might as well use that color scheme since the San Diego Padres are abandoning it soon.
  5. That's clearly the New England Patriots logo's grandfather.
  6. I have no idea why I started thinking about the mid-2000's Spurs today, but here are two good ones: Before he perfected his karate kicks with Coach Pop, Bruce Bowen played in the hell that was the Rick Pitino-era Celtics. And former #1 overall pick Glenn "Big Dog" Robinson (how he went #1 over Jason Kidd and Grant Hill, I will never understand) spent his last year coming off of the bench and getting a ring with the '05 Spurs.
  7. I get the 45 at the bottom, but...what exactly do the five stars mean up top? A star for every letter in Trump and/or Pence? A reference to being a "five-star President?" Trump Tower's Yelp rating? *exhales* I should probably step outside and stop over-analyzing the world, shouldn't I?
  8. Holy crap, I didn't know Crowley was from RochMN! For once, the city has a claim to fame that isn't "Mayo Clinic" or "The Rochester not in New York." Also, damn shame to hear about the Calgary crisis.
  9. Glad to see Rothbart got another job after The Swan Princess stopped being financially viable enough for sequels.
  10. Ohhhhhhhhhh I don't know about this one. Strangely, I'm not sentimental about most logos, but as a kid growing up in California, Round Table was a big part of my childhood. The wordmark is great for a baseball jersey, but I'm not feeling the monochrome at ALL. That rT is way too messy too. Then again, this could all be sentimentality, so take my opinion with a grain of garlic salt.
  11. That flag is so bad, even the eel looks like it wants out.
  12. It must be a new thing, the Target in my town (yes, we only have one) now has the lower-case wordmark front and center after its renovation. I'm not a fan, to be honest.
  13. Remind me to always check the AFA thread because...ho. ly. crap. The USFA scandal might be the craziest thing I've ever read, and somehow Jeremy Simmons ended up in the center of it. Then again, I'm not shocked Bubba would toss out the n-word so naturally. Here's hoping Simmons saved whatever cash he had so he can get a minority stake (unintentional pun, I swear) in an AFA team... Also, how in God's name did Cincinnati collapse so quickly? Did Reggie Hart age in dog years? Can't wait to see what happens with the Rebels--I know you've got something amazing cooking up.
  14. Jason Crowley is the American GOAT for sure. He's not Skippy Cleveland or David Appleby, but he's no doubt a legend. He did the impossible--made me root for a Boston team to win a championship.
  15. Man, the Lumberjacks fell off SO quickly. It really puts what the Shamrocks have done in perspective.
