Idaho in the Pacific Northwest is one of those things I've never gotten. Spokane isn't even really in the Pacific Northwest; how is the entire state of Idaho, which has more in common with Utah than it does with anything west of the Cascades? Dumb. 


I would probably consider Idaho part of the PNW but only because of the impact the Pacific Ocean has on the weather. It generally stays warmer than the states to the east due to the proximity to that PNW swell, but it’s still admittedly a bit of a stretch. Really, only half of the state is in that region. 
 

Montana, though? Never. Not sure why that whole region is ever lumped in with the west coast.

I've got a great idea to sell Idaho, Montana, and the Dakotas to Canada.

Resource extraction? Never heard of it.

 

Fix the senate and make a few bucks at the same time

Some of y'all are thinking WAY too hard about this thing 🤣 I mean shoot, with the way some up in here generalize entire swaths of this country, now you wanna get particular?? Just let it breathe, man...the whole PNW thing is just a broad generalization anyway. (Again, it's just the top side of the western 11, that's all.)

 

Of course we wouldn't even be on this hill had whoever wrote up that logo explanation not even tried the whole five sides = five states of the PNW thing. It's a dang home plate, homie--let it be what it is. Lose the extra bullcorn, bro.

The rain shield of the Cascades has a bigger effect on climate than the Pacific on the other side. I mean, this is eastern Oregon:

Not my mental picture of the PNW. That's just standard-issue Mormon country, like Idaho, which itself is like Utah.


Yeah you get a pretty similar effect down further south with the Sierra Nevada mountains (which I still get confused as to how it’s not considered an extension of the same range, but I digress).

I like Seattle’s All-Star Game logo, but I don’t love it. The bursts of yellow, while they make obvious sense considering the M’s history, give me more Rays vibes when paired with the navy & (too dark) teal. The compass rose especially reminds me of the Rays’ “sunburst,” even more so because it’s slanted to not be vertically symmetrical like it usually is. 
 

I think we’ve had some outstanding All-Star Game logos for the past 15 or so years, with very few if any misses, so it was tough to live up to that near impossible standard, though this logo does come close.

The southern half of Idaho fits your description.  The panhandle though is all mountains, pine trees, and resort towns (Coeur d'Alene) that does actually fit in a bit more with Cascadia.

Juneau to Marin County, coastline to mountains by the most generous definition 


That’s part of the Coast Ranges, which is technically separate from the Cascades. That would also put a decent chunk of the Sierra Nevada in the PNW, which just feels awkward. Boundary line between the Sierra and the Cascades falls somewhere around Lake Almanor, which is about 250 miles north of Marin County. 

 

California, particularly the part of the state north of the Bay Area/Sacramento/Tahoe corridor is deceptively enormous. Part of the state does fall in the PNW IMO (even if it technically just misses it), but not the part that anyone pays attention to.

Aside from the new All Star logo what about actual uniforms etc? Hopefully the Marlins break out the 1993-02 Teal Uniform to wear for Sunday home games. Also the other 16 teams that don't have City Connect will now have them.

I'll have to see if I can find it, but the local beat reporter for the Rays seemed to say the Tampa Bay City Connect wouldnt be until 2024.  I would think they might split up the 16 remaining teams into 2 years of 8 each year.

This year was great..... but for what? The Dodgers did not/have not used it on the sleeve of their jerseys, like many teams have done in the past!

 

And in the game itself? It was a black and gold version! Just awful compared to the real logo.
