It's true. Apparently if you can finish off that entire monstrosity, the ballclub will pick up 30% of your heart surgery bill.

I just realized that that big blue thing is the letter "M". You know the 13th thingy from the Alphabet? Oh my God!

I seriously did just realize the stitching of the baseball is a piece of wheat. That's something.

Regarding the BiG: I know that when I was a kid, I didn't recognize it as both an "mb" and a ball-in-glove. When I realized it was both, it was quite the epiphany.

Regarding the Wisconsin barleyball: If the Brewers had used that on the sleeve of their 1997-99 jerseys instead of the Motre Bame diamond, they would have achieved Total Victory.

I think everyone has that moment. I had a Brewers hat and some of the neighborhood kids were sitting around on my steps and one of the girls (who probably did not know who the team was, said "It looks like a 'B' and an 'M'". I agreed...and then it hit me....

Heck, I am surprised there is not a thread called "When/How did you first notice the BiG was an M and a B"

I remember being quite young... maybe not even in kindergarten yet... and wondering why the Brewers' logo only had room for three fingers and a thumb. I didn't put it all together until that fateful recess in third grade when a classmate pointed it out on the Brewers t-shirt I was wearing. My mind was blown. :D

...but usually not until you cross Highway 29...

...or maybe in Cudahy. :P

You guys have it all wrong.

THIS is the best Brewer's logo:

How many shots of Jim Bean whiskey did it take to come up with this?

None. That's vodka in that Bloody Mary (along with spiced tomato juice).

Real Wisconsinites drink brandy old fashioneds (preferably over a game of sheep's head).

I'm sorry, I thought this was a Houston Aeros thread?

Sheep's Head is without question the most fun card game I have ever played. The only problems are 1) I was not very good at it and 2) there is no point in playing it without playing for money (because the "risks" are not too risky). I also enjoy Euchre, which was not nearly as fun as sheep's head, but at least can be played for fun (as opposed to money).

Same here. I'm not as blown away as I was when I first realized what the ball in glove log was...but still a little surprised.

This Aeros thread has followed the same fate as the actual Aeros and has been taken over by a bunch of midwesterners ;)

Funny story about the Aeros from The Rebel League, a book about the WHA. The Aeros were originally the Dayton Arrows, but moved to Houston before the first season. In looking for a new name the owner came up with Aeros when he saw an Aeromexico jet on the tarmac at the Houston airport. The funny part is a comment by the author that Houston hockey fans should be grateful that there was no Virgin Airways back in the early 70s. BTW I read elsewhere that the reason for the team's relocation was that Alexander wanted to raise their rent from $8000 to $24000 a game.

/close thread.

Recolor that puppy, recolor BiG, slap recolored Barrel Man on the sleeves and BiG on the hats and boom they never have to change uniforms again.

also, Packers. They have nothing to do with the thread but now it's a true Wisconsin discussion
