NOTE: Time for our yearly tradition of going over the changes in the minor league hockey landscape for the upcoming year. You may note that I'm doing this a lot later than I normally do. There's a very good reason for this, which is that there's almost nothing to say.
You see, there isn't a single new team this year. And not a single team has relocated. There's only one change from last year to this year, which is that the ECHL Manchester Monarchs have folded. Our condolences to the fans of Manchester.
Of course, with that being the only change, the only way there would be any reviews for me to do this winter would be if some teams had changed logos. And none have. So I'm going to take a break this winter. I'll be back in the spring with more baseball reviews. Have a good winter!
"What's the Bush League Factor?" you may be thinking.
Basically, it's a not-too-serious attempt at quantifying how lousy some of the logos in minor league hockey and baseball are. Certain offenses have been catalogued -- cartoony logos, logos with irrelevant features in them (such as a bear in the logo for a team called the "Aces"), trendy and/or garish colors, and so forth. Each offense has been given a point value, and the scores have been added up.
Some people would say that I need to get a life, and they may be right, but until then I'm going to keep working on this.
Updates should come roughly once a week during the season...maybe more often, maybe less. Keep checking to see what I have to say. With every update one team (sometimes more if I'm feeling ambitious) will be spotlighted. Teams will be done in a seemingly random order (it isn't, but the exact order is left as an exercise to the reader).
Navigation is fairly straightforward. Look at the links on the left and click on the team or department you want to go to.
If you wish to contact me, the best way is through the Facebook page. If you're old school and prefer e-mail, my username is daniel and my domain is the same as that for this page. I avoid putting the two together because I get more than enough spam as it is. Be warned that I often go months without checking the e-mail for this site, whereas I'm on Facebook fairly often. Comments are welcome and encouraged. Particularly witty comments may get put on the website. Particularly stupid ones may as well. Sending me e-mail regarding the Bush League Factor constitutes acceptance of these terms (which is a fancy way of saying, "No, you can't sue me for putting your e-mail on the webpage!").
