  1. *sorry, quadruple post*
  2. *sorry, double post.*
  3. Lovin' it, except for the branches (or roots?) under the "y." Are they supposed to be roots or branches? If branches, I'd probably get rid of them. If roots, I'd make them look a little more "rooty", meaning changing the way the ends terminate.
  4. I can't believe how many repliers either didn't read or missed the point of the actual question. Southpaw and BucksKick - those teams never even wore the jersey colors you are mentioning. JCC, most of those colors have nothing to do with the current set. Also, I don't think the Hornets' red or purple would count, just yellow, teal, and white.
  5. Every time I tell myself "don't do it." And every time I do it. Why oh why do I click on these threads. My IQ drops at least 15 points every time I read one of these. One more of these, and a few more reel line mint threads, and I'll qualify for a live-in "essential person."
  6. The documentary on him was incredible. They showed the surgery to remove the main part of the tumor, and how he is still being treated for a small piece that is on an artery. Now that his pituitary has stopped going nuts, he is just starting puberty! This is one of the big reasons he could never get in any kind of shape, so hopefully his conditioning will improve dramatically over the next several months. Whether or not he has the actual athleticism needed for the NBA remains to be seen. They also showed him living in an apartment with some of his teammates. The only think I could think of to describe it was that old Sesame Street song "one of these things is not like the others... one of these things is not quite the same."
  7. The yellow in your Pens sig. is too orangy, almost Flyers colors. Also, I think your "5"s are in the wrong font.
  8. Oh I know, I meant it for zer0, just happened to quote your post. Also, wasn't he wearing #96 by then?
  9. Maybe the best player in general to play for the Nucks, but not as a Canuck. Bure's the best Canuck. Anywho, I'd go with Linden Bure is probably better associated with the black - yellow set, so I'd probably go in another direction.
  10. I can't disagree with you more. IMO Wild, Heat, Jazz, and Magic are terrible names (with Wild being the absolute worst.) Wild is either an adjective, or a location (out in the wild.) Either way for a player to say "I'm proud to be a Wild" just sounds ridiculous. I really think that Heat and Magic get accepted only because people are used to them, and (at least in the Heat's case) they have dope logos / uni's. For some reason I'm OK with Avalanche, and to a lesser extent Lightning. Maybe because even though they don't end in s, they still represent multiple things? I'm hungover and my head hurts. Good day to you.
  11. Philadelphia / Pittsburgh is not a rivalry in Philadelphia. Because Philadelphia fans think their teams are better and whatnot and were just another oppenent, blah, blah, blah... I guess you cant have a rivalry if only one team has been winning. We are rivals and there has been bad blood between these teams for years. They play like rivals. They play as often as rivals. They are rivals. Wow, way to put words into someone's mouth. They are not rivals. Philadelphia's rivals are NJ and NY teams, because those cities are closer in proximity, and closer in terms of size and "lifestyle" (a horrible word, I know, but I couldn't think of anything else.) Your Pittsburgh inferiority complex is beaming in your post. I never degraded Pittsburgh, but the fact is that in Philadelphia, Pittsburgh is just another city that might as well be in another state. Not a crappy city, just not one that people think about. Ok ok. True. But just because the fans aren't rivals doesn't mean the teams aren't. Also, I never accused you of calling Pittsburgh inferior. Though I definitely cant say the same of other Philly fans. Well every city is inferior to some other city in some ways. The whole "I'm better than you because I'm from X" game is pretty dumb, and unfortunately gets played pretty often around here. From my time in Pittsburgh, I know that out there, they gear up for any opportunity to take on Philadelphia, and I honestly think it has a lot to do with hatred for the "big city that runs the state." (quote paraphrased from another thread.) Very similar to the points made in the other thread about how the rest of Canada hates Toronto. It's pretty dumb. The teams are only rivals because they are in the same division, I honestly don't think that players give it a little extra just because one side is representing the other team in the state (honestly, do you think that the Russians, Czechs, Sweeds, etc. really give a F?) Hey - we hate the Cowboys and consider them a rivalry. I doubt anyone in Dallas gives a rats ass about Phila.

  13. Philadelphia / Pittsburgh is not a rivalry in Philadelphia. As for this realignment plan, I can't believe Idaho didn't get a team.

    I thought it was one of those things that was on the replicas but not the authentics. Guess not.
  15. Well going by the OP, this "change" is dependant on them staying in Florida, so I'd say not.
  16. I would think (hope?) that a professional team would be able to compensate an artist with more than a jersey. Bling bling - pay the man.
  17. huggermugger makes an excellent point. Were the '93 Marlins playing off of a fad when they selected their colors? Possibly, but nevertheless the teal became their identity. When used properly (like hm suggested) the color can withstand changes in fads and still be used as the basis for a strong recognizable identity even today (the Sharks example was spot on.) The Detroit Pistons are the perfect example of a team "picking and choosing whatever color is 'in'" and failing miserably. When used properly, you don't even "see" the colors, just the team. When I see the Sharks, I don't think "OMG teal!" I just know it's the Sharks. For nearly the entire Grant Hill era, whenever I saw the Pistons my brain didn't recognize them as the Pistons, as I was focused on the glaring misuse of teal. Maybe I'm just goofy though.
  18. The Marshall's and TJ Maxxxxx in my area are overflowing with Bobby Abreu and Jim Thome Phillies jerseys. 99% replica, but I have seen at least one authentic of each (or at least authentic numbers.)
  19. That's almost too much awesomeness for one image to handle. Its point should never be forgotten.
  20. Please, I beg, get a life and stop with the realignments!!! I click to read about the Sonics, not some [insert derogatory term here]'s plan to put a team in Idaho and switch the Jazz and Hornets.
  21. Cool concept, but lends itself more to t-shirts than to hats.
  22. If only that were true! The current US cultural centers, in as much as the entire country uses them as examples of how to act, are suburban "towne centers" (intentionally spelled that way to be cute) featuring such beacons of culture as Target, EB Games, Qdoba, Tinseltown, Dollar Tree, and other strip mall crap that looks the same no matter where you are. New York City is celebrated by the world, but vilified as immoral cesspool throughout most of the US. I don't know if Canada ever got those Pace Picante commercials, but I think the "New York City!!" sentiment is spot on. I'm glad you recognize New York as the incredible place that it is. In actual America, i.e. the large swaths of land outside of the major cities, buildings, diversity, classical music, and stores that aren't franchises are looked on with suspicion and hate. I don't think I could agree more with the point that I think you are trying to make. The last sentence about diversity, music, and franchises is (unfortunately) so very true. If I get more time (and if this thread is still alive) I'll elaborate more on this.
  23. Where's the CCSLC Post of the Day ribbon when you need it?
