The Montreal Expos (French: Expos de Montréal) team started in 1969 and never changed their logo. For almost 40 years the team held on to this awesome mark because it was smart and looked great. Expos de Montreal Baseball. That is the secret behind this logo. Interwoven script pieces all come together to abbreviate the full name of the team. This logo is a little dated looking, but I can imagine this being modernized and still looking amazing without significant change. That is how you know this is a good logo. The line work is smooth, it is creative and clever and I commend the designer for coming up with a mark that doesn’t rely on a baseball to remind the viewer that it is a team logo. This is easily one of the smartest logos in baseball history.
I literally went, “Oh wow,” when I read this bit. I’d never understood this about the Expos logo.

At least the Mets all know to wear the same uniform.
The same can’t be said for the woeful Cubbies, whose left fielder Junior Lake played the first inning of Chicago’s game in Pittsburgh Thursday wearing the team’s wrong road uniform.

Can’t sleep, Irish Mr. Met will eat me . . . can’t sleep, Irish Mr. Met will eat me . . .
I’m too afraid to ask what Mrs. Met is wearing….

Since the Lehigh Valley IronPigs put their new, bacon-themed merchandise on sale, they have been as popular as ever. . . On Feb. 24, the team announced its players would wear uniforms for Saturday games featuring a wavy strip of bacon on the hats, jerseys and pants. Since then, the team has sold almost 3,300 of the bacon hats and 1,500 bacon-strip scratch-and-sniff T-shirts that promise to smell through at least 10 trips in the washing machine.
. . .
[T]he team will continue the theme at the ballpark this year, selling bacon-flavored cotton candy and offering free bacon crumbles on all concession items the team sells, from hot dogs to ice cream. The IronPigs are also in the process of developing a race that involves eating a large number of bacon strips at the halfway point. Bloody Mary cocktails, with pieces of bacon in them, of course, will await those who cross the finish line.
Something for the Primate that has everything.

What better baseball team to associate Black Friday with?
Why would you drop $100 on a replica or $268 on an authentic (wait what) when you could stroll your fingers over to the beautiful wasteland of sports memorabilia that is eBay. Now is the time to buy a jersey for next season, the time to get something awful, or maybe something wonderful and unique that will turn heads. Trust me, it is far more rewarding to walk around a Seahawks game with a Rufus Porter jersey than it is with a Russell Wilson one.
Some people don’t like to wear jerseys. I don’t ever wear mine outside of Safeco, but that’s the one place where your purchase can be truly appreciated. Nobody is going to be impressed by your $268 authentic jersey (nobody knows you dropped an absurd amount of money but you), so get something cheap and unique. Let’s observe some options for your 2014 wardrobe.
for his generous support.
