The newly dubed Oklahoma "City" RedHawks unveiled their new logo yesterday. If you thought Thunder sucks, check this out:
Two Oklahoma City embarrassments in less time than it takes Jason White to "run" 50 yards. What must people across the nation be thinking? Well, normally, no one would even be aware of a AAA team changing it's logo. However, the timing of this event, may give us some unwanted exposure. The news comes a day before the AAA championship game. Of course, it would have to be covered by ESPN, and of course, it would have to be held in OKC!
Personally, I find the new secondary logo to be decent, though it is somewhat reminiscent of Miami(OH) (coincidentally, also the RedHawks). The primary logo is a disgrace though. What's with logos that don't represent their teams?
It all started a few years back when Blazers officials decided it was a good idea to change the Blazers logo to feature the new capital dome. Seriously? If they were the Capitals, or the Senators, or the Governors, or the Domes, this would be an acceptable logo. But they aren't...they're the Blazers. You know, fire, streaking speed, not unnecessary architectural feats.
Then of course, came the notorious Thunder logo. This has been covered plenty by this blog and everywhere else in the nation, so I'll save you another tirade and not say anything about "that thing."
Now, we have...this...
I think Aristotle once said, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." This is obviously a ploy to sell more RedHawk gear by Scott Pruitt, perhaps trying to make up for potential lost income that will be brought upon by the Thunder in advance. If that's the case, I don't think Scott should be worried. As long as there's dollar beer night, the RedHawks will sell seats.
