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.
