A New Pair of Sox for the Red Sox

New Red Sox Identities

This design link is near and dear to my heart – The Boston Red Sox recent­ly updat­ed their team iden­ti­ty and uni­forms. Over­all, I think it’s a pos­i­tive evo­lu­tion, though seems a bit nos­tol­gic. I love the gray pri­ma­ry road jer­seys.

Armin Vit most­ly likes what he sees:

Replac­ing the old seal as the team’s offi­cial logo is the lone pair of red, hang­ing sox. Unless I’m wrong, there is no typog­ra­phy asso­ci­at­ed with it. None. No “Boston.” No “Red Sox.” If that’s the case, this is one of the best cas­es of visu­al iden­ti­ty and brand equi­ty becom­ing so strong the icon doesn’t need expla­na­tion. They are sox. They are red. They can not be any­thing oth­er than the Boston Red Sox.

End Game

Do you believe?

Schilling is Shilling for Bush?

It already seems like a dream—the Red Sox reversed the 86-year curse, by sweep­ing the World Series on Wednes­day night, and I haven’t post­ed yet. I got­ta say, it’s been a great thing for this town, and for its decades of great teams that just couldn’t win it all.

Schilling, Pedro, DLowe, Ortiz, Man­ny, Foulke… all heroes. Can’t wait to great them at the parade tomor­row.

But what is up with Schilling, shilling for Bush ? Some­one needs to tell him that there are two Evil Empires—the Yan­kees, and the Bushies.

This is Ker­ry coun­try, Curt. We love the way you pitch, and we put up with all your “I love Jesus” talk, but nobody cares if you’re for low­er­ing your own tax­es, and not every­body else’s. Keep that to your­self.

Appar­ent­ly, his “doc­tors” instruct­ed him to can­cel the appear­ances with Bush in New Hamp­shire, today.

Rally Cap

I’ve been wear­ing my ral­ly cap since the 5th inning.

Wow. Trot wins it in the 11th inning on a home run to the deep­est part of Fen­way.
