It ain’t bragging if you can do it.
A friend of mine sent me this video by the Kalamazoo Growlers, and it had me laughing so hard that I just had to share the love. There is, of course, a whole heap of social commentary to be made about how this video represents the sorts of examples we are setting for our kids. In terms of pure entertainment, meanwhile, it does provide a couple minutes of comic relief.
This video popped up on my YouTube feed yesterday. (Thanks, YouTube, for stalking my viewing history to offer up this suggestion…) While the video is a tad lengthy, it’s also quite fascinating. It provides a history of logos of MLB teams, and even takes into account location and team name changes — for example, how the 1960s Washington Senators became the Texas Rangers, or how the Brooklyn Superbas eventually evolved into the present-day Los Angeles Dodgers.
Some of these logos I don’t think I’ve ever seen before. Others I did remember, and they made me feel a bit nostalgic. Sports evolution, every aspect of it, is an interesting phenomenon.
