  1. That’s what they said on the telecast
  2. To me, the Cubs uniform is the most aesthetically pleasing of this series so far. That said, it's still so pointless.* It's not what the team is supposed to look like. A dark blue t-shirt with white over light blue "Wrigleyville" would probably sell really well and be an OK fan product. It's stupid on the field, particularly Wrigley Field, where only the pinstripes should be worn. *aside from selling merchandise of course
  3. Yesterday the Twins turned MLB's firs 3-6-4 triple play since 1980.
  4. (Tried to edit my post; quoted myself...)
  5. Not really a "logo" but the most famous design example I can think of is that a lot of people think the Monopoly Man has a monocle when he in-fact never has. I agree with whoever said that the Fruit of the Loom is the best example thus far. I'm having trouble coming up with a sports example. I think the Blasty example belongs more in the the "Misperceptions of Logos" thread, where someone might say that they thought the Blues' logo was a bird's wing rather than a music note or that they saw the Nordiques logo as an Elephant. It's difficult to come up with a good sports example because we'll all be looking at intricacies that the general public doesn't notice, like "I was thinking the the 1980s Royals powder blue wordmark was outlined in royal blue but it turns out it wasn't." That's just off of most peoples' radar to the point that it could not really apply. I would bet a lot of "regular" fans don't realize that the Yankees don't wear names on the back of the uniforms, but I don't quite think that's an example of the Mandela effect. I am sure a lot of people think the "Sabres" are the "Sabers" but again, that's not a great example. A good example would be more like if we all started talking about the Buffaslug and for some reason a bunch of us thought that there was a sword "underlining" it.
  6. T-Wolves would be gone forever (or until another team gets there, which would be unlikely). This is how it's done now.
  7. Not good. They play some high school games there and the Lynx played there fo a season during Target Center renovation but I don’t think it is the key to keeping an NBA team.
  8. I recently read that it was to put the road team in a darker uniform in the Texas heat. Though I don’t recall the source.
  9. It’s long past time for the Timberwolves to move. That said, I don’t understand an 80-year-old billionaire maximizing a ten-figure sale at the expense of his home state. It’s almost as pathetic as when octogenarian Carl Pohlad offered his original AL franchise to be eliminated in exchange for a pile of cash.
  10. I agree. While I tend to agree with most people that the darkening of uniforms in recent decades has been a negative overall (as evidenced by soulless teams like the Mavericks and the previous Brewers look), I tend to prefer one vivid color instead of two. For example, I am not a fan of the kelly green A's jersey. I think the forest green looks a lot better alongside the yellow. Similarly, alongside orange, I tend to prefer a darker blue. Maybe the darker trend pulled me in a bit, but I find multiple vivid colors to be a bit too loud for my taste.
  11. Every time someone makes a concept that matches the colors for the Cowboys, it's better in theory. But I've resigned myself to the fact that I like their mismatched colors. The concepts are always kind of boring. I'm not quite sure how or when it happened but I don't think there was ever a conscious decision to be unmatched. It just sort of happened, and I like it. It's similar to when the Tigers made all their D's match; a smart idea in theory but I think both their hat and (especially) jersey were downgraded.
  12. Some entertaining play-in games. But they ultimately took Steph out of the playoffs.
  13. The play-in nonsense peaked early. Most years, you're not getting LeBron/Steph. You're getting mediocrity/mediocrity. The idea that the 10th seed can get in while the 7 seed doesn't is asinine.
  14. Agreed. I'm not a "Vegas guy." Been there once (for Wisconsin at UNLV) and it wasn't my kind of travel spot. That said, if I was, going for a Vikings game or making a long weekend for a Thursday Wild game in February? Sure. Hitting Vegas to see the Twins in July? No.
  15. In a vacuum, the colors are nice. But not a great move for that franchise. The uniform was not executed very well iwth the lack of stripes. (Needs stripes).
