Yawn, more merchandising

Pete Abe has the new patch the Yanks will be sporting in honor of their new stadium, a tribute to excess, graft and political skid-greasing. Says Petey:

Yankees.com has a few shirts with the logo available already. It’s a nice patch and if you look closely you can see a team official asking the city of New York for more money.

And Pete also rightfully mocks the Mets' feeble attempt at a patch:
You have to love the Mets, the only team that would design a patch for their new stadium that doesn’t mention the stadium or show any images of it.



Zing!

That Mets patch is the saddest thing I've ever seen. I showed it to a Mets fan friend and he had this to say:

"That Mets patch is awful. They suck at life. They can't do anything right."

*snicker*

Really, is it any different from the "Intel Inside" sticker on my laptop or something equally uninspiring?


"Baseball-like substance inside"

I don't know why but it reminds me of a big box store logo. If you put Wal-Mart in one of those boxes it wouldn't seem out of place to me.

...or the Dominoes logo...
