    That’s the second time this season the Mets have worn the BFBS jerseys in a non-Friday home game. As if we need another reason to stop watching…

    I’ll be positive. I’m positive that is a crappy look for the Mets. Truly awful. A BFBS disaster. Jeez, just stick with your classic blue/orange pinstripe uniforms. This ain’t that hard.

    The current iconic sign is almost 15 years old. WOW! I have underwear older than that. Also, how does a highway sign enhance the visitor experience and what is the point of a sign with interactive content? It’s just all so ridiculous…

    I thought the same! What a joke!!

    It’s not “iconic”… the HOLLYWOOD sign is iconic. This is nothing more than an old and outdated sign but who cares? If you got a new sign, you got a new sign. Big deal.

    And a highway sign is not going to enhance the visitor experience, if anything it will only “enhance the experience” of those travelers passing by on the highway, presuming they don’t get into a traffic accident because they’re toying with the “interactive content” and not paying attention to the road.

    The scoreboard at the Twins park has had MULTIPLE issues all season. wrong teams, wrong stats, wrong photos. for half a game, there was nothing, just the twins logo. they got a new scoreboard, and apparently having a hard time with the controls.

    The V in Ramaswamy’s campaign logo would fit right in with this year’s MLB Independence day cap lineup.

    Mets wearing black which is appropriate at funerals because the season is over. I actually like this BFBS (one of the very few) because the blue and orange really pop.

    I watched the entire clip of the NBA All-Star introductions. What a treat! No eardrum-destroying music, no flashing laser lights, no screaming announcer. Just simple introductions. Very cool!

    Love the simplicity too. Today’s intros are so annoyingly over the top….and long. Between the hype videos, light shows, dance routines, and screaming announcers, they go on forever. Ridiculous.

    Paul may have made a positivity pledge, but I didn’t.

    Apparently, that article about the Nuggets’ championship hat is now inaccurate – while the NBA Store may have shown that other script design earlier, currently it’s showing the version worn after the game, which suggests the other cap was a placeholder. Shame, because that script was just so much better looking than that cheap-ass crappy pseudo-script they went with, which botched the O (it’s not an A since it lacks the right vertical stroke, but the connecting stroke being at the bottom instead of the top of the letter just shows it’s a very lazy script design).
