  1. Well, long time no see, my fellow logophiles. I come from the grave to bring you the logos of the Israel Baseball League. Yes, Israel Baseball League, which made news recently because the last pick of the inaugural draft was Sandy Koufax, done in tribute. The league, to begin play in late June, will be made up primarily of non-israelis who are of Jewish descent. The league logos: (they ditched that logo) The teams (and their logos) are: Bet Shemesh Blue Sox (managed by Ron Blomberg): (hat logo, I presume) (script) Modi'in Miracle (managed by Art Shamsky): (hat logo) (script) Netanya Tigers: (hat logo) (script) Petach Tikva Pioneers: Ra'anana Express: Tel Aviv Lightning:
  2. That screen is proof that I want a bigger TV.
  3. When I first saw the name of this thread, I said "And the World breaths a sigh of relief". Then I saw the new name... And the world is a worse place then it was yesterday...
  4. Many people in America associate the 1812 Overture with the war of 1812. The historical illiteracy of my fellow Americans can be shocking sometimes.
  5. I am 95% certain that the Daily Show with John Stewart did a segment on the whole "Pink Taco" restaurant chain and how some people are demanding it change it's name. BTW, that stadium, with it's retractable field. I mean, a retractable field. That is just SO FREAKING SWEET. I know it's been done in European and Japanese stadiums for Soccer (in Japan, actually, it's part of a elaborate transformation from Baseball to Soccer and back again: check it out here, it's interesting for those stadium fans), but it is just so cool.
  6. I remember those cards. And I also remember some SI for Kids cards where they jokingly showed how some athletes WERE multi-sports athletes, even though they WEREN'T! Like Mike Piazza as a Hockey Goalie, or Jerry Rice (or was it Cris Carter?) as a outfielder for the Mets.
  7. The swearing incident is proof that you should NEVER have children speaking on live TV.
  8. Agreed. To this day, Football can only be truly felt in a high school game (especially in the South, although I've never been to one there). It's Football distilled into it's purest form, like a backyard game of Baseball or a inner-city Basketball game. If inner-city basketball is "true basketball," I'll eat my hat. Well, what I meant was... a pick-up game of basketball, or maybe Indiana high school Basketball. But we're getting off-topic..

  10. "Transatlantic" is really just a way of saying "Americans overseas". It's Oil Companies, Military Bases, research facilities, etc.
  11. Looking at the back of it gives me a headache
  12. Everybody has to love the LLWS. It is a reminder of a simpler time............... Controversy has hit the Youth Baseball scene recently, but I'm sure the Little League World Series will once again be fun and entertaining: Today's games: Portsmouth NH vs. Beaverton, OH 4:00 PM, ESPN 2 Surrey, British Columbia, Canada vs. Dhahran, Saudi Arabia 6:00 PM, ESPN2 Canada is the country that has had the most appearances in the LLWS without a title. The Dhahran team is a perennial contestant, although rarely a contender. It's team is made up of the children of oil workers, and most of them are American citizens. Columbia, MO vs. Lake Charles, LA 8:00 PM, ESPN
  13. It is becoming increasingly that ESPN should just open ESPN 3 through 7, and then open ESPN 8, "THE OCHO" to put this thing on.
  14. I always thought it'd be cool to see a movie on the 1951 NY Giants. The pennant race with the Dodgers, the likely sign-stealing controversy, the playoff series all leading up to the finale with Bobby Thomson's home run.
  15. Actually, little known fact: The Yankees originated in Buffalo, NY. You see, the AL began as a Minor League circuit in the late 1890's as the "Western League". When it became the American League, most of the WL franchises moved to major cities, the Buffalo one moved to Baltimore, which later moved to NY. -- But seriously though, if the Yankees move, well, let's just say the court battles would likely drain even Darth Steiny's big wallets.
