Two weeks have elapsed since the last Freak Out Friday, so right on time it's here again. And oddly enough, we're starting where we started last time — with the clubs from New York.
I think that needs no explanation. And sticking with NY for a moment, check out this Buffalo Sabres logo concept.
Yeah it takes a minute to really realize what you're seeing. At first you're thinking, "yeah, that classic '70s logo... but wait, something is a little off about it — aside from the buffalo being yellow, that is." Oh that's it! It has a slug head.
And just when you thought the Sabres hadn't been through enough for one Freak Out post, just wait for this.
Perhaps if the Bills played hockey... No, just no. And while we're on the topic of odd jerseys, we have another.
I believe we've seen something of this nature before, but it's still funny to me.
Now we're heading out west for the rest of the post — starting with a very strange Vancouver Canucks concept logo.
The whale is diving into the "C" ... get it? (Say it out loud if you haven't gotten it yet.)
And with the QMJHL logo tournament in full swing over at ToHL, a reader sent me this logo crossing the Rimouski Oceanic with the Phoenix Coyotes.
Finally, on a completely different tack, someone has not only created a brand for a team, they've created a brand new team. I'm told the Florida Panthers should move to Seattle to become the Totems.
Now I'm no fan of the stinkin' Panthers but if this is the only option, I can't say I'd wholeheartedly support it. The design comes complete with jerseys and everything.
So keep your freaky artwork coming so I can keep this series going. Check back in two weeks for the next Freak Out Friday.
Oh, and to anyone out there who doesn't believe in the evil powers of Friday the 13th, consider this: Tim Russert dropped dead in the NBC newsroom today, a 6.9 magnitude earthquake rattled Japan, Iowa is under water and a tornado just tore off a bunch of roofs and wiped out a Wal-Mart down here in my part of Florida.
Yeah, but that Wal-Mart had it coming.
