This is probably the stupidest diary ever posted here, but I'm wondering if anyone else has strong feelings about this.
I just do not like the current
"orthinologically correct" "lifelike bird" Oriole caps very much, and I wish the Os would go back to the older, cartoon style bird. My objections are partly aesthetic (I think the orthinologically correct lifelike bird does not stand out enough to be a good logo) and partly due to nostalgia (the great Oriole teams of the 70s and 80s I grew up with wore the cartoon bird).
Okay, it's an exaggeration to say I have "strong" feelings about this, but I'm curious what others think. For the record, I own several of both the old and new style hats, but I tend to wear the old style ones more often.
Update: I was worried about posting such a frivolous diary, but the poll has become the most voted on from the diaries. I suppose anything is better than talking about how bad we a stinking right now. Despite a late surge for the ?orthinologically correct/lifelike? bird, it looks like the cartoon bird is favored by a pretty sizable margin. Thanks for the great comments and votes. Go O?s!
Should the Os bring back the cartoon bird?
I've been working on my own design that's better than either. (1 vote)
