Mystery team opening new mystery stadium

12 Jan

metsinaug.jpgBaseball memorabilia collectors everywhere are scratching their heads wondering what the heck this commemorative patch is all about. By looking at the logo alone, we can surmise that some sort of sports team (or maybe TV show) will be doing something new in 2009. That’s it!

For those of you who simply cannot wait any longer, we’ll kill the suspense and let you in on what the logo is all about: It’s a patch to commemorate the opening of Citi Field. Can you believe it? Who thought this was a good idea? For starters, it doesn’t even have the team name on it, not to mention the stadium name. A photo or rendering of the stadium wouldn’t hurt either.

At least the Domino’s logo (which the Mets’ logo was clearly patterned after) shows an actual domino. That’s marketing 101, by the way:

Finally, for those of you wondering how a good commemorative patch should look, just take a peek across town:

    Well, the Mets have less money to spend then the Yankees and they might be concerned, after the HORRIBLE last two falls that they have had, that their fans might not want to be associated with this team.

    You’re right, Julia. That might just be the answer we were looking for. You should join The Max’s crack staff of investigators.

    By the way, we’re on Twitter now. Not really sure why just yet:

    Looks like a design my fast-forward thinking 8 year old niece came up with on the fly after a half can of Mountain Dew and a basic Photoshop tutorial. Nice (*ahem) work, Mets.

    Hey Guys – firstly – found you on twitter! Secondly – did you read the article on Yahoo Sports? Their comment – “A bunch of preschoolers could hold a coloring contest and come up with a better patch then the Mets did”! Loved that! Thirdly – shall we discuss salary for me to join your staff??

    Come on Mets…. We know you weren’t sure if Citi was gonna pull their $$ out of the stadium, but did you really have to have Omar make the patches in his basement? Hell, I know a couple of graphic designers who woulda done it on the cheap since they are die-hard Mets fans……
