I'm sure every last Mormon is looking to insensitively convert Jews posthumously. :rolleyes: That's a broad brush that you paint with, sir.

 

But back to mascots and the topic at hand. I agree with @FinsUp1214..."Jazz Bear" (as most people call him lol) isn't the most creative name, but he makes up for his lackadaisical name with his antics IMO. "Suns Gorilla" or "Oriole Bird" aren't exactly what I would call creative mascot names, either.

 

To be fair, this is a message board.. When you paint boards, you use a broad brush.. If it were a message canvas, however...

Did the A’s get new green alts? Cursive “Oakland” font?

 

Yes.  For their 50th Anniversary in Oakland.  Maybe ten pages back?

That being said, what's with Fredbird and Oriole Bird's derpy beaks?

 

???

 

Elaborate, please.

I'm pretty sure he means that Oriole Bird and Fred Bird both have bent, unsturdy, mushy looking beaks. And yes they're made of soft foam-like material but, by comparison, the Blue Jays Ace has a beak that looks more, um, sturdy? firm? The wording is tricky but maybe pics help...

Got it.


I can't speak for Fredbird, but the Oriole Bird uses the flexibility of his beak as part of his schtick (ex., pretending to eat opposing team hats, giving full face/head kisses).

MASSAGE Board? I need to log in with my other account.
Gotta keep my Sportslogos.net account and Backpage accounts separate.

Rockies/Coors Field getting a new scoreboard this season. 

 

Here’s a FIRST LOOK at the new scoreboard!

8,369 sq ft | 258% larger than the old Coors Field board | 784 60-inch televisions | 6.8 million LEDs | HD1080P | Uniquely Colorado Rockies shape | Speaker enhancements on the lower bowl

I like it.

 

But boy. are the Rockies all over the place with their wordmarks.

 

They have the radially arched version on their jerseys:

A vertically arched version on their magazine masthead:

And this half-arced version on top of the scoreboard.

Think they should pick one and stick with it.  And frankly, either of the two secondary versions would be better than the one on their jerseys.

These are the only places you see these wordmarks, though. On merchandise, it's the jersey wordmark. The scoreboard mark was only bridged because of the mountain logo on top. The magazine mark is probably vertical to align with the edges of the magazine.

But they don’t need either of those.  Their jersey wordmark could fit quite nicely on the top of the scoreboard.  If they’re really concerned about the magazine cover, they could use the straight version from their primary logo:

Now it’s certainly not unheard of for clubs with arched wordmarks to have a straight version for the applications where that might fit better.   The Brewers, for example, always had one of each:

But four?  Four is indeed unusual.  There is literally no reason for the Rockies to have four different versions of that wordmark.  Except that they want to.  Which I find a little bizarre.

Same goes for Fredbird because he’s a mascot and not a real bird. ?

I heard today that the UA uniforms will debut in the 2018 postseason.

 

Thatd kinda match what they did with the new era add on the side of the cap a few years ago, so can’t say this isn’t possible. 

 

Could lead to an interesting situation where a team is rebranding and wears their current set but with the UA logo for only 3 games. That jersey would be ridiculously rare. 

 

Kinda like how the ‘92 phillies wore the only version of the maroon caps with the batter man on the back - but just for the preseason. Good luck finding one of those.

If true (which I doubt), would this be just a logo change? I've never heard of this before.
