Outdoors and Camo

I've been busy lately, but that doesn't mean there hasn't been news! Let's start with the Wild's outdoor practice. That's right, the Wild held an outdoor practice. The event went well, and looked pretty cool.

More news: the Wild wore camo warmup jerseys tonight. I read about this last week but didn't get a chance to post it. Anyway, they came out of the locker room in the camo jerseys and wore them in practice. I kinda like them. I find it interesting that they used the home crest with the road number font.

What Could Have Been...

On the Wild's website, there is a slide show of some designs for the potential team in Minnesota, had Wild not been chosen as the name. We have long known about the names up for voting, but this is the first we've seen of any designs. The final names were Blue Ox, Freeze, Northern Lights, Voyageurs, White Bears, and, of course, Wild. Obviously Wild was the chosen name, but the others certainly had potential. All of them fit in nicely with the state of Minnesota. Let's take a look at those...missed opportunities.

Blue Ox:


Northern Lights:


White Bears:

After seeing these, I am glad they went with Wild. The Northern Lights had some nice tributes to the North Stars, that could have been pretty cool.

A Little More '67

Here is our 6th entry in the Est. 1967 contest. This concept comes from Chapeeko. His design uses green, a darker red, and yellow/gold. The colors fit in quite well with the era. The jersey design uses an old school striping pattern, block numbers, and a very retro logo. Can you spot everything hidden in the logo?

Chances are good that this is the final entry, but the deadline is basically Saturday. I plan to set up the voting system Saturday, assuming I get a chance to do so. The Contest page will be updated when voting is ready, and the poll will be the same layout as last time.
