Toledo This Is How You Do A Ghostbusters Uniform

I loved the Ghostbusters. I love sports. I love uniforms. So, when I heard the Toledo Mud Hens were doing a Ghostbusters night I thought that was cool. Then I saw the half assed uniform they put together to capitalize off the memories of my youth and I was a little pissed. I am fine with companies taking advantage of my childhood to get my money because things like ALF (bring it back give it to Seth either or both of them), TMNT, X-Men, Transformers, and Ghostbusters get brought which is AWESOME!!!!!!!!!

I do have a problem when someone just half asses something especially uniforms and doubly when it is Ghostbusters.

This is the uni Toledo thought was good enough. It sucks



Ok, the front is decent. The Mud Hens shouldn’t be on the name patch but I guess you have to have the team name on the front. There is no Ghostbusters patch or team version of a Ghostbusters patch strike one, there is no slime strike two, lastly there is no blaster pack on the back of the uniform strike three



I used the same uniform Toledo did as my template and just added what they should have done in the first place if they really cared. Things to take note of the Ghostbusters patch has a Yankee symbol in because who wouldn’t want to them in a trap. The front now has slime and the negative space has the player number in it. The back has a blaster pack. The players number is shown on the pack in red wires. The one thing not pictured is the ghost trap that should be on the hip of the pants




Here is a second version this one fixes my bitch about the last name not being on patch. It also gets the team name on the uniform and more slime.

There should be some kind of pocket on the bottom part of the front but I don’t know if a fake zipper would look stupid and if a real one would get in the way so I left it off. I also want to see the gun on the side of the uniform. I guess you could just screen it on the uniform on the back. Then you also have to do something for the belt but I am thinking you do that on the pants but I don’t know for sure.

So, the point is if you want to bastardized my childhood memories for profit please spend more than 5 minutes on it because I spent hours upon hours watching and playing back in the day and anything less than AWESOME just pisses me off. You don’t fuck up my cartoon heroes!

What is Under Armour Thinking

Under Armour has paid to be the official sponsor of the NFL Combine but yet they are letting Adidas run the 100k for the fastest 40 time contest.

Why are they letting another brand run a better marketing campaign in the event they paid to sponsor? You already spent the money why not give whoever runs the fastest 40 time a two year shoe deal at the same 100k but name one of your shoes after them plus do a TV ad with them on draft day.

If you tell these guys you wear a UA shoe and run the fastest 40 time you get your own signature shoe and a tv ad not a single kid there would wear Adi. Adi would have to spend some real money to get the attention of the players. Naming a shoe after a guy runs you $0 dollars

Just saying someone at UA needs to fired for letting this happen and the guy at Adi needs a raise because a 100k is nothing.

Duck Dynasty + Bowl Game + Uniform = Call Me

The guys at Duck Dyansty are getting a bowl game. Someone with a beard must have been watching my twitter account during bowl season because I said that either Bass Pro or Duck Commander should host a bowl game with some sweet orange vs camo uni action.

Well the first part is happening there will be a Duck Commander Bowl. The next question is will there be cool themed uniforms and if so who is going to design it?

NACHOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! but he is busy

nacho libre

So, guess that leaves this bearded football uniform creator



If you agree that this beard needs to team up with those beards let them know just push retweet

Tampa Bay Bucs Flag Logo Concepts

Here are few versions of a new Bucs flag logo I threw together. I will throw some helmets together here in the next week or so.

Here is the original logo I saw online that I decided to tweak a little



I started with wrapping the flag around the sword because the original logo looks like the flag would fall off. I also added the creamsicle outline because I think the team should use the creamsicle color pop like the seahawks use the neon green. The rest of the concepts I played with different variations of logos on the flag and different background colors

Another Nike NFL Rebrand = Another Clusterf*$k

Ok the Tampa Bay Buccaneers decided to let Nike redo their look and Nike has failed once again.

The current tally

Nike Great Job 0

They have not wowed me with anything they have done so far. The new Seattle uniforms I like but I think they could have done some little things to make it really pop and push it to another level. It is however the best uni they have made for NFL

Decent Job 2


Vikings   I like the flat helmet for the Vikings I like the more old school shoulder stripes, but the numbers are odd and the horn on back of sleeve stripe looks like a printing error


ClusterF*#k s

Dolphins what color of aqua is that and the logo is not an upgrade old uniform was better.

Jags= FUBAR WTF logo looks like bad Japanese comic from the 90’s, The uniform is the worst in all of sports, the two tone helmet doesn’t even work with their own design statement. Designer should be fired and banned from ever doing another uniform.

Now to grade the New Bucs look.

Here it is if you haven’t spotted this massive logo yet



The devil horn look on the front of this helmet is not a good look

Ok above is the new helmet and new logo


Log lets start there they didn’t make a change worthy of changing. The skull looks more like Skeletor now , you can see less of the sword, the flag lacks movement/folds. Great job Nike

The lettering is cheap looking. I like the old lettering better by a hair.

Ok, now onto the helmet. The helmet is once again not classifiable as one color which has been a thing for the Bucs so I guess I will let that slide. I am a fan of large oversized logos. Some of my fav designs I have done feature an oversized logo. Now, with that being said this one is too big and shape of the logo doesn’t flow with the helmet. Since the team was using a new logo they could have made it to flow better on the lid.

I am not sure who made this logo but I really like it. I found it on the web. If you made it let me know I will link back to you. Great job BTW



I would like to see a few changes to this I would like to see the flag wrapped around the sword in the middle and possibly a creamsicle outline since the helmet is dark. Here is a quick mockup needs some work but you get the idea. I like the idea of changing out the skull too. I might work on some versions here in a bit.

bucs logo

Here are some better versions I did of the Bucs logo here

Before I bash the look anymore I will say I love the new ship logo



I still don’t like the football or the skull but the boat is much better than the old one. I would like to see some creamsicle highlights in the sails. I will work on tweaking this as well.

Either the ship or alt flag would have worked better on an oversized logo helmet. I will make some some and show you what I am talking about later this week. I am interested to see what changes in the uniforms come next.

Now before any of you hypesheep start blowing me up telling me how sick they are just



Keep buying overpriced shit that looks like hell that is “special” because someone tells you it is not because you like it. Once you have an original thought you may talk. baaaaah!
