The Super Bowl XLIX patch has nice detail but…

The jersey patches are in! #OnToSB49 #SB49

I like the detail in the Super Bowl patch this year. You have the stadium and some elements of the desert like the cactus. But I am starting to get real frustrated with the generic Super Bowl logos. I thought I could withstand the frustration but it’s been a few years now and I miss the days where the logo was unique every year.

Next year, I expect the logo to be gold but basically the same design.

This also indicates that the Patriots will wear their white jersey for the Super Bowl as expected. The Seahawks have also tweeted out a photo of their patch and they will wear blue.

Toronto Raptors’ new logo looks way too similar to the Brooklyn Nets

The Raptors unveiled this video today which features their new logo. This means that the current logo with the dinosaur will be no more after this season.

What a shame. I liked the dinosaur. I don’t like Drake and his creative ideas for the Raptors. This new logo isn’t creative at all. In fact, it looks similar to another logo.

Islanders going back to Gorton’s Fisherman look for one more night

For one last time, the Islanders will bring back Gorton’s Fisherman.

As a kid just starting to learn about the game of hockey, I had some trading cards. I remember my first exposure to the New York Islanders was the Gorton’s Fisherman look. Even though the identity lasted only two seasons, that to me is what the Islanders are to me.

Yes, the identity was terrible. Yes the colors were so 90s. But it was unique. It didn’t make sense. But I loved it. I wish the team kept it a little longer.

Well, it looks like the memory isn’t gone forever. With the Islanders celebrating their final season at Nassau, they will wear that ugly logo one last time.

I want a part of this. Even something as simple with the logo on a cap, I want to have something with this logo. There’s a part of me that just longs to have that one nostalgic moment. Just a time where something so bad could be considered good enough to outfit a professional team.

Thank you, Isles, for letting me be on the boat one last time.

MLB honors 9/11 victims with inconsistent patches again

Last season I wrote about the 9/11 flag patches MLB has every player wear to honor the victims of the day. MLB is doing it again and it once again shows that the caps the players are wearing are not the same ones you can buy online.

Minnesota Twins just placed the flag patch over the All-Star Game patch.

Notice the flag patch here. It’s clearly just glued on over the Twins’ All-Star Game patch. Different from what the online shop is saying they are wearing. Also, the location of the patch is on the first side panel, placed in front of the ear.
