While I'm On Baseball...


The old Montreal Expos logo used to bug the shit out of me. It's supposed to be an "M", but to me it looked like "elb".

The Montreal Elbows?

Funny stuff. I like your humor. I had to tag someone so I did you, because your blog name sounds kind of like mine.

See my interesting fact blog for details.

Laters!

I vividly remember asking my sister about their logo when I was about ten years old. I never got it either.

Cooper said...

When they existed, it stood for Montreal Expos Baseball. Now it represents a big hole in Olympic Stadium.

Jen said...

I never noticed that

until now.



PS.
GO SOX!

Geo said...

Yeah, worst logo ever. In contrast to the old Milwaukee Brewers, which had the best logo ever.

Splotchy said...

I dunno, logo kinda looks like two penises hugging.

Which isn't a positive in my book, necessarily.

This one has always bugged me too. To think someone got paid for that crap.

Beth said...

They weren't the Elbows? Huh.

Chris said...

Manx- Thanks for dropping by! See my archives for my eight things.

Val- Yeah, it's lame.

Cooper- Welcome! I take it you were an Expos fan?

Jen- I like this blog to be educational.

Geo- Yeah, the Brewers did have a cool logo.

Splotchy- Now that you mention it...

GKL- Yeah, probably a LOT, too.

Beth- If they had been the Elbows, maybe they'd have sold more tickets.

an "M"?? You're shitting me. I've never ever seen that-- it's always been "ELB". I always mentally put in the "OW" to complete it.

Looks like elb to me, too.
