I pretty much stopped reading ESPN’s Page 2 when Hunter S. Thompson blew his head off — I think he would have wanted me to — but there’s something really good over there today: Updated MLB logos. Each team’s, reimagined in such a way as to capture the essence of its bein’, ya know?
Observations: the Mets one is dead perfect, and would have been even if K-Rod hadn’t socked the wife’s old man last night. The Indians one, I presume, will be stolen by many a Cleveland-based sports blogger. Most of the other ones are pretty clever too, though the Yankees is a bit too obvious. Really, there has to be a way to take the piss out of that team these days without making an easy reference to their payroll, right?
That quibble aside, I judge the efforts to constitute near brilliance.
