That is terrible. Not only the design of the logo, but also the fact that it's the Ducks and Kings together. That's probably something that shouldn't be a thing.

So far in the Flames' alphabet, we have:

A B C G N P Q S V

I've noticed that too! There's a lot of that sort of late '60s/'70s futurism that aged so poorly, combined with what David Foster Wallace once called "crumbling splendor." It's hard to pin down exactly what I mean by that, but it's there, and the Expos represented it well.

I guess that hideous Stade Olympique would be a good first example, but there's more.

That span from Expo 67 to the 1976 Olympics was a big time for Montreal -- both of those are huge, city-altering events that happened to occur in a very distinctive time period whose aesthetic hasn't aged well. But that's where the baseball team came from, as well as tons and tons of buildings, the Metro, etc. It's pretty interesting.

The Quebec separatist movement also gained steam shortly after that, which caused a lot of Montreal's business and civic institutions to pull out of Montreal; and ultimately allowed Toronto to overtake Montreal as Canada's cultural capital. That's how the Bank of Montreal (BMO) came to be headquartered in Toronto.

Haven't seen the Vero Beach Devil Rays yet:

Heading over to Japan you have the Chunichi Dragons script:

Between Japan and Korea you have these two teams. Who share the same corporate ownership:

I believe this American Association team is in the Phillies' script:

And this could be a stretch, but would you say the current flames logo is a letter modified version of the ORIGINAL Flames logo?

Not sure whether I posted these earlier or not...anyway, given we have the alphabet as taught by the Flames, here I go with some Habs and Hab-nots.

There are probably subtle differences, but it's less of "modification" and more of "the exact same thing" :D

Also El Camino College uses something familiar for their football team, even if they're called the Warriors.

I love that, but every time I see the cap logo it's more and more obvious that the "C" is upside down.

Genetals?

Turning that stick into the R does not work. Why not just put the hockey stick on the L?

Yeh, reminded me of that black Lakers uniform...after I got a good look, it struck me as basically that: a black version of the white jersey, with a few tweaks.

That Southpoint one, it's more of an Oshawa Generals ripoff, only thing in common with the Caps is the name and colors.
