NOTE POSTED 2020 OCTOBER 7: You may be looking at the fact that it's been over a year since my last update and wondering if I've abandoned this site. The answer is no, I have not. So why haven't I posted anything in over a year? Well, it's like this: For the 2019-20 hockey there simply weren't any new logos to review (no teams formed, moved, or changed logos). Then the pandemic cancelled minor league baseball's 2020 season, and since I only post reviews during the season, I was idle over the summer.
As I write this the SPHL has announced plans to begin the season (with half of its teams in suspended operations) after Christmas, the AHL has said its season will begin "no sooner than December 4", and the ECHL has made no announcements regarding the upcoming season. None of these leagues have released a schedule. Frankly, I don't expect there to be a 2020-21 minor league hockey season. With no TV revenue stream like the majors have, minor league sports simply aren't viable until the pandemic is under control, and clearly this country isn't going to get the pandemic under control before sometime next year.
Assuming the country can get its shit together, there may actually be a 2021 minor league baseball season and thus I will resume posting reviews this spring. At the moment I am cautiously optimistic that we will have at least a shortened season. But time will tell.
I will try to keep you updated on where things stand with the various leagues' seasons, so feel free to check every few weeks. Until then, stay safe, stay healthy, and wear a fucking mask.
"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!").
