A Close Look at Falcons Logo Inconsistencies

We all know the basics of the Atlanta Falcons’ logo history. The team wore its original falcon logo from 1966 through 2002 (as seen on the helmet shown at right), and then in 2003 they replaced it with the more stylized logo that they still wear today.

But here’s something you might not know (and that I didn’t know myself until reader Matthew Dunn recently brought it to my attention): There were at least four different versions of that original logo — and there have been extended periods when two of those versions routinely appeared on the Falcons’ uniforms at the same time.

Let’s start with the Falcons’ first two seasons — 1966 and ’67. For those two years, the team’s primary logo appeared on the uniform in two places: on the helmet and as a sleeve patch. But the two logos, while very similar, didn’t quite match. Take a look at these photos, all of which are from those first two seasons (for everything in today’s post, you can click to enlarge): (Continue reading)

Hats Off To Brooklyn -- Part III

[Editor’s Note: Paul is on his annual August break from site. Deputy editor Phil Hecken is in charge from now through the end of the month, although Paul is still on the clock over at ESPN and may be popping up here occasionally.]

Brooklyn cap 550

By Phil Hecken, with Chance Michaels

Long-time (and even more recent) Uni Watch readers will recognize the name of today’s lede writer, Chance Michaels, a good friend with whom Paul and I have shared dinners, enjoyed Mets games and some of you may have even met him at a Uni Watch gathering or two (he’s the third from the left in that last photo). Throughout the years, Chance has contributed a number of articles to the blog, and he’s probably most familiar to you as the guy who runs the wonderful Borchert Field Blog.

While the Brewers may be his overriding passion, his obsessive dedication to the athletic aesthetic is what makes his expertise in all fields, especially baseball from days of yore, so invaluable. Today’s article may mark the longest gap between a “Part II” and “Part III” in the history of Uni Watch — but I’m pleased to bring Chance back to report on a good development in the uni world. And after reading this, don’t forget to check out the final set (last two groups) of GRIFFIN DESIGN CONTEST entries (with voting).

I’ll let Chance take it from here… (Continue reading)

In Defense of Skippy & Muffy (and Ambrose, Poppy, Tad & Whitney too)

Skippy & Muffy 550

[Editor’s Note: Paul is on his annual August break from site. Deputy editor Phil Hecken is in charge from now through the end of the month, although Paul is still on the clock over at ESPN and may be popping up here occasionally.]

By Phil Hecken

As you’re probably all aware (or should be), tonight the Olympics (technically the Games of the XXXIst Olympiad) begin in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil with the spectacle that is the Opening Ceremony. (Yes, technically the Games have already begun with some of the sports requiring games to be played before the official start of the Games, so their tournaments can be completed by the end of the Games.)

Last weekend, on Saturday to be precise, Paul subbed for me and had a sub-lede entitled Skippy, Muffy ready for Rio — scroll down — (and also had an ESPN piece) which kinda-sorta poked fun at the USA’s Opening Ceremonies garb, with an allusion to it’s apparent preppy-ness. Now, Paul and I don’t often disagree when it comes to uniforms (fashion is another story), but I’m here to say that I think the USA’s opening night costumes are spectacular — well, from the exposed ankles up. Those shoes gotta go. (Continue reading)
