When I was younger, I believed the NFL Q.B. Club logo was a bird.  Pardon the crude illustration example.

For a long time, when I saw the Nordiques logo, I saw an elephant. I always knew it couldn’t be an elephant but that’s what I saw.ihhp0oe6oigz6hmepf9gsra48.png

 

Even now, I know it’s an igloo, but still have to make myself look at it that way rather than seeing the abstract elephant with the ball on its trunk.

As a kid, I had Lions stuff all over my room and stared at this thing every night for years. The white hole looks like an eye. I know it`s supposed to be the space between his leg and chin, but they could`ve made it a bit more pronounced. DROVE ME NUTS. So glad they updated it.

I could only ever see a Jb. Still to this day, I have to really look for the M. I think it would be brilliant if they made the right curl a bit more pronounced without disrupting the b. 

 

To a less extent, I used to think the old Bronco head in the D was snorting out lasers. 

elb. I still believe!

The "b" was there on purpose.  The "l" was never intended, it's just blank space they didn't know what to do with.

That's why this is objectively a bad logo.

Why would someone design a logo for Montreal, which starts with an m, with the most prominent feature being a B? Does it represent Blue?

Took me until I was, let's say, 25 to see the eye in the Bills' logo. I thought it was just another part of the horn. 

It took me until I read this post to notice the eye. Thank you!

This was pointed out by one of my students...

 

The helmet's bill and player's nose is a duck with his mouth open...

Also, with the bat still on his shoulders, he doesn't have a shot a making contact.

That's okay, the pitch is outside.  Good eye, batter, good eye!

Maybe it’s a coach just tossing one up for infield practice.

The Expos' logo was discussed on an episode of Newhart that aired on March 21, 1988. In it, George the handyman, a childlike character played by the delightful Tom Poston, has decided to give up on the Red Sox (note that the show is set in Vermont) because the team has caused him too much pain. He wants to find a new team to root for by spring training, and he asks his boss Dick (Bob Newhart) for help.

Not necessarily a logo misconception, but when I was younger, I thought an Argonaut was nothing more than a Canadian Astronaut.

I still read the Under Armour logo as a capital H... My mind refuses to see it as a UA especially when seen in action/motion.

Kinda similarly, when I was a kid I had a Gilbert Arenas basketball card and he was wearing a Bullets throwback jersey. Since the card said he played for the Wizards, he couldn't possibly be the player in the jersey that said "Bullets" so I just assumed the arm in his face at the edge of the card was Gilbert Arenas. Afterward, I became very confused as to how I never got any cards with players from the Bullets. 

 

This reads like an A-grade John Mulaney bit. Really funny/relatable.

Of course, I learned later how the Kings' logo predated the iconic TV series.

 

As a kid I thought this was a frowning person wearing a crown that was way too big for his head.

I originally thought that about the Canucks too as a kid in the late ‘80s

I wonder if we would have thought this way if we'd been able to stare at high quality logos on the internet back then. My main exposure to the logo came from NHL 94 on the Genesis which isn't exactly high-res. Or it could just be that kids are dumb. Who could say?

 

I didn't know the Nordiques logo was supposed to be an igloo until the advent of the internet. I never understood what I was looking at, but now that people are saying they used to think it was an elephant I keep seeing it as an elephant.
