Watched “The Game Plan” earlier this week (fiancée’s choice) and I couldn’t help but see similarities between the fictional Boston Rebels’ helmet logo and the Birmingham Iron logo. Not the spitting image by any means, but the idea of a “B” wrapped in a football shape.

Similarities with the logo, but Birmingham didn’t actually put logos on their helmets.

Because I needed a show to hate-watch, here’s Liberty High School from 13 Reasons Why.

They’ve got fantastic colors, even if the logos are a bit generic. The show is utter garbage that’s potentially harmful to depressed individuals, but we know that.

I am old enough to remember this series of commercials for New York Life but was young enough then that I actually thought this was a real football team, and that the uniforms were cool...

I loved those commercials . . . probably because I was a sucker for anything with sports in it

The Tampico Stogies from the 1987 HBO original film Long Gone.

Ebbets Field Flannels has manufactured the Stogies' home pinstripe jersey. It features the #7 worn by William Petersen's character, pitcher/manager Cecil "Stud" Cantrell .

Why is there an apostrophe-s at the end?  It makes it look like a beer league softball team sponsored by Stogie's Bar and Grill.

Before working on One Punch Man, Yusuke Murata worked on another manga series called Eyeshield 21, a story centered around a fictional high school American football team in Japan called the Deimon Devil Bats. I always thought the Bats had the sharpest uniforms in fictional sports. That devil wing on their helmets really brings it home.

I'm not into anime myself, but you're right that those are sharp helmets.

That's a popular color scheme for non-existent teams...
