Swept Up in the Latest News

tidal.jpgI’m always happier, both in blogging and in life, when there’s something important to focus on. Something big, with a sense of momentum that can carry me right along with it.

But usually it ain’t like that. One simply has to make do with what’s available, imbuing it with enough meaning to make it seem worthwhile.

So welcome to today’s blog post, a full-to-bursting bouillabaisse of imminently worthwhile and meaningful material!

I’ll start with what you surely all came here for: video of anthropomorphic sushi engaged in a high-stakes battle royale amidst a sprawling winter wonderland.

Which of the Vancouver Canadians racing mascots will prevail? Only those who have watched this video know for sure!
 

But perhaps you prefer your Minor League mascots in cameo, as opposed to vegetable, rolls? If so, then watch on. You might be surprised at who turns up, as he’s a most elusive character. He’s also a vegetable. 

And, of course, hardly a day goes by when there is not a new logo to share. I’m particularly pleased to share this, the official mark of Chattanooga’s Engel Foundation:

As you’ll no doubt recall, this is the group that is seeking to restore the iconic Southern Association facility (which played host to a veritable cavalcade of baseball greats). I wrote an article and blog about the efforts during my trip to Chattanooga last season; read all about it HERE and HERE.

Oh, so it’s more logos you want? Then more logos I have. The three images seen below were designed by the ubiquitous Plan B Branding, to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the Boise Hawks. Fans can vote for their favorites at the team’s web page, but as of now that image in the middle possesses a formidable lead.

Clearly, the Hawks’ are a talon-ted squad!

Like a recently-robbed scooter store, I’m all out of segues. So let’s just keep moving…

For those who may not have seen it via Facebook, Twitter, or scrolling CNN news story, there is currently a piece on MiLB.com about Marty Dobrow’s book “Knocking On Heaven’s Door.” Check it out HERE, or just look at the cover here:

Finally, it is worth noting that the Baseball Winter Meetings are less than a week away. Therefore, I have two questions for you:

– Will you be there?
– Regardless, what sort of articles/blog posts would most interest you?

Feedback, please. I know you’re out there.
