In today’s Ticker: A previously unseen Twins logo, an NFL quarterback has a “Whoops!” jersey moment, and more.

Baseball

MLB

  • Some new stadium renovations for the Guardians. (From Kary Klismet)
  • Two notes about the Twins: First, they appear to have a new roundel logo that was not previously announced. And second,  they announced their latest international signees by having them wear red “Minnesota” jerseys made by Rawlings — a strange choice. Turns out they did the same thing last year. (From Jim Tischler and Jon Pehler, respectively)

Minors

  • The Salt Lake Bees, the Angels’ Triple-A affiliate, are planning a move to a new stadium in the suburbs south of Salt Lake City in 2025. (From Kary Klismet)

    “And we’re going to order more uniforms. I want more changes than Lady Gaga.” — Deion Sanders

    “Uh-oh.” — Fans of dignity and class

    “YES!!!” — Fans of clown schlock

    So GW will be anything but the Colonials and Hippos. Some suggestions…

    Generals
    Presidents
    Monuments
    Wooden Teeth
    Cherry Trees
    Axes

    For those who don’t know, a NASCAR firesuit is rated 3.2/A 5. What that means is it will protect the wearer from second degree burns for 10 seconds. This new rule is meant to give the drivers more time to spare in the case of fire.

    Since the minimum SFI rating is not listed, I’m going to guess it is the equivalent of an SFI 3.2/A 1 which will provide three additional seconds.

    “…a potential moniker would align with, which include “shaping the future” and “at the center of power” and personality traits like “tenacious,” “electric” and “open,” which they say reflects the GW community’s shared experience, athletics identity and a connection to the University’s past and future.”

    Can’t wait to see what mascot matches up with that gibberish.

    There are worse things than not having a nickname or a mascot. In the good old days the sportswriters would eventually provide one.

    I might be the only one, but I’d rather the Jags went with the white pants. I just wish they didn’t wear white socks with it. How I long for the Jaguars uniforms of yesteryear (Brunell, McCardell, Smith, Means).

    Two things: GW will come up with a bland nickname to go with that explanation (Hippos would have been cool). The other thing: Dynamo Berlin wanting its old crest back (it is similar to the one of Dynamo Dresden) is suspicious. Dynamo clubs were ruled by the Stasi secret police who were a terror to the East German people and the Stasi had a big saying in the results of games and even the relocation of clubs in the DDR. Any association with that is at least questionable, I think.
