As someone who loves the local delicacy of the stuffed quahog but thinks Seth MacFarlane is possibly the very bottom of American culture, pretty torn up about this one.

Tried one of those at a neat little restaurant on Cape Cod about a month ago. It was freaking delicious (and a lot larger than I expected).

We haven't seen the jerseys; but that cap logo is a mess.  The cap with the wordmark is not bad; but I assume that that's a fashion item, and that the cap with the graphical logo is the game cap.

 

Anyway, there's no way I would eat one of those quahogs.  I am probably the only Italian who doesn't like seafood (except from tuna, which, when I was a little kid, I could not believe was a fish).  I have tried plenty of seafood: clams, lobster, shrimp, flounder, etc. It's all totally gross to me.  (Apart from my trusty tuna.)

Seth MacFarlane is a Renaissance man, and the creator of some of the most trenchant satire of American society in the past several decades.  In honour of him, I display my Family Guy caricature at my desk at work.

And with The Orville he shows that he has a better grasp of Star Trek than does anyone producing Star Trek.

Seth is a straight-up hero.

It looks like the finalist names of the soon-to-be-former New Orleans Baby Cakes (sorry for the fans, but not for the name) are slowly being revealed. First up, the Wichita River Riders:

 

I think I speak for the forum when I say that I’m glad they’re not going with Brandiose.

Lehigh Valley IronPigs blame typo for IronPugs promotion

August 10, 2019 - 15:08 PM

To hear the Lehigh Valley IronPigs tell it, the reason they’ll be giving away 3,000 “IronPugs” T-shirts—and taking on a new logo and brand for one game—is simple typographical error by their general manager Kurt Landes. Per the team: “Landes […]

So they had thousands of caps made, also for the typo? I don't believe you. 

 

They also added a pug logo to the already wrong IRON PUGS wordmarked shirt?

 

That's laying on the lies thick to correct one mistake  And 3,000 shirts is nothing. 

 

This is all a ploy. 

 

Was this also a spell check issue too?

No. That’s just an issue that could easily be fixed by not having open fronts on baseball jerseys. Sew that placket shut and it’s fine. 🙂

The appearance of the lowercase n in that wordmark has nothing to do with the placket. 

 

The wordmark imitates handwritten cursive, in which a lowercase n has two humps — and a lowercase m has three humps. (Also, a handwritten cursive lowercase r usually comes out as one hump, despite the style guides that instruct the use of sharp corners.)

Most baseball scripts don't follow these handwrting conventions; they present a version of the lowercase n that resembles the printed form..

But some script wordmarks do incorporate a two-hump lowercase n.
