Dad Needs a Logo

Via Baseball Musings (via VSIMH) comes the exciting news that Steve Garvey's official website is soliciting entries for a new logo. Above is a sample logo from the information page; note that the design brief is requesting a blue and white color scheme. Not mustard and brown.

Additionally, the intended logo scheme is supposed to be "simple, fun and masculine." Like a Pet Rock.

And before you go running to boot up Photoshop, please note that for all intents and purposes (a phrase a college friend of mine always thought was "for all intensive purposes"), the contest is over. My design:

I like how the ball looks like it is making a face.

MR. F said...

Everybody thinks it's "for all intensive purposes." They also type "should of" instead of "should have."

=(

Maybe I'll start using the phrase: for all intents and intensive purposes.

Dusty Baker said...

I am not freaking lying, I JUST typed that phrase in a work-related email (remember those?). Of course, I used it correctly. ;-)

Dusty Baker said...

That's an excellent logo, Orel! Love the rudimentary baseball (better than I could create).

Eric Karros said...

What if the context of the conversation actually led to someone correctly using the phrase "for all intensive purposes," but everyone thought he said "for all intents and purposes"?

That would be hysterical.

Well, since it's for your dad, you've at least earned a spot on his fridge.

OT:

Oh, we can have fun with this one:

I clicked on Travis Schlichting.

Two of Cory Wade's pictures are of him batting.

Dusty Baker said...

The Travis Schlichting pics look like they were taken at an Olan Mills studio.

Brent Leach seems to be pitching at an actual game. That was probably the one where he made his debut against Ryan Howard and promptly gave up a bomb that landed on the other side of the THINK BLUE sign.

Garret Anderson has two photos. If the blurb in the pop-up window is to be believed, they picture the following momentous events:

Picture on left: Strikes out looking as a pinch hitter to end the game

Picture on right: Goes 0 - 4 from the 2nd spot in the order without getting a ball out of the infield.

We don't get French benefits?

I love that the original logo has Pops Garvey playing on a soccer field.

Looks like he's waiting for a corner kick but the ballboy is busy getting the ball back from some unruly fans

I don't usually get into viral videos (unless it's clown porn), but this one has to be shared. It's of a 2-year-old baby smoking cigs:

hmm I think I prefer the smoking chimp. He seems to need it more. The kid is just trying to look cool

Alex Cora said...

WIN!

MR. F said...

Mr. F is not a fan of humans smoking. Chimps are okay.

Fred's Brim said...

@DB

so where is this clown porn you promised us?
HONK HONK!

Steve Sax said...

I don't know about that video, Dusty. That kid just tweeted that it isn't him, and that someone else had hacked his facebook account.

Fred's Brim said...

I think he was in that pic with Lindsey Lohan and that pile of blow. It was all a setup

What is the chimp really smoking?
