Colts appear to be emphasizing old logo in new merchandise

Since their inception as the Baltimore Colts in 1953, the Colts have used the above logo. It wasn’t until 1978 when the team decided to move forward with the horseshoe logo.

Last season, coach Chuck Pagano has been seen wearing that throwback logo. Now their training camp gear features that logo instead of the horseshoe. Does this mean the team is going to use that more often or is this just a design for coach?

Regardless, the team hasn’t mentioned their Baltimore roots as often as I thought they would since moving to Indianapolis. Their current set (gray facemasks, black cleats) does pay homage to that time so maybe this is another step towards it.

Either way, I like this logo a lot and am glad to see more of it.

Redskins’ use of #RedskinsPride may not be the best idea

Most times, a tweet like this is harmless. But with the Redskins and their name controversy, it was really harmful to their image.

The Twitter reaction to this has been brutal.

I must have and collect all the All-Star Peanuts gang

I am a huge fan of Peanuts. I have also been to Minneapolis. When I heard about the All-Star Game festivities and their theme of Peanuts, I was immediately sold on the idea of buying everything with their faces on it.

Snoopy and gang have always been my favorite. They just breed the goodness of people and since creator Charles Schulz is from the area, it was natural for them to promote the All-Star Game with these statues.

Of course I can’t have all the statues, but as a baseball fan and collector, I must find whatever memorabilia they are selling with the Peanuts gang and have them. I know they have figurines so I will absolutely make sure I will collect them all.

It’s so adorable! So glad they went this route for this year’s All-Star Game.

MLB’s #DOMINoNo promotion is not going so well

Last year, MLB had this promotion in which following a no-hitter, fans can claim a code for a free pizza from Domino’s. I did it last year and it was cool.

Today they ran the same promotion. The only problem is that the server was down when it was time to claim the pizza and the reactions on Twitter is pretty funny. Well, it’s funny unless you’re really hungry.

It’s pretty embarrassing for MLB and Domino’s.

Memorial Day means confusion to what it means for Blue Jays

Blue Jays celebrated America’s Memorial Day by wearing their Canadian camouflage.

During American holidays, all of Major League Baseball is decked out in special uniforms. Whether it’s the caps or jerseys (sometimes both), the teams will wear either a flag patch or a camouflage design. But on Memorial Day yesterday, it was a little strange.

Since it’s an American holiday, it would have been odd for the Blue Jays to participate in the uniform changeup. But it had been promoted that the Jays would take part of it.

But when the day arrived, the Jays did not wear that cap. Instead they used the Canadian (CADPAT) camouflage design instead. As you can see in the above photo, it’s green and completely different than what the rest of the league was wearing.

An idea of what the new Hornets jerseys will look like

A look at the jersey wordmarks for the Hornets.

As confirmed by several sources, these are the wordmarks that the new Hornets will use on their jerseys. Unlike their previous set in which the city name was featured on both home and away sets, this one will feature the team name.

It is unknown if the new jerseys will have stripes like their original set, but we can tell that the home jersey is white and the road jersey is purple. Their alternate, which might have sleeves, likely will be teal and unveiled in possibly a year or two. I think it might read “Buzz City.”

I would have preferred that the road set would be teal, but I suppose maybe they unveil a teal version without sleeves later. It’s just a guess.

The colors look fresh and vibrant. I am optimistic about these. The entire uniform set will be unveiled on June 19.
