Colbert joins club, rips Mets

16 Jan

In a recent edition of The Colbert Report, Steve Colbert joined in on the fun of destroying the Mets for their ridiculous new commemorative patch. In his rant, he also shows a screen grab from Yahoo! Sports where the site compares the logo to the Domino’s Pizza logo. Over the past week, it appears everybody is giving credit to Yahoo! for coming up with this (Not for nothing, but The Max posted the same exact thing 3 HOURS prior to Yahoo! Check it out).

Check out the time stamp. We posted at 12:50 p.m. Our first comment was at 2:08 p.m. They posted after 5 p.m. (seen here). Not that we are bitter or anything. We’re still big fans of Yahoo’s Big League Stew, and always will be. We would just like a reply to the email we sent to them. That’s all (the e-mail was very friendly, by the way).

Oh yeah, the video. Here’s it is:

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:
