Special thanks to Jared L. who pointed out to me that the blog was down. Thanks buddy, I didn't notice!
Three more sleeps! I'm sure most of you think I'm referring to the NHL Draft. Well, that's slightly the case. I'm more excited about getting out of my regular life for a week and chilling at Myrtle Beach. I don't even have much planned for the short week vacation. Probably just sitting at the beach, reading Bob McKenzie's "Hockey Confidential" book (No we did not get paid to promote it). Probably some other things. I'd like to take a swing at golf. I'm horrible, but it's nice to get a round in now and then. I don't think I'll enjoy fishing as much but getting on a boat for awhile could be relaxing. As a kid when we would go on these vacations I was so excited to go around, wait in lines to see things that were over hyped. Now I'm just excited to just relax and get away from my everyday life for a little bit. Thanks to my aunts and uncles for taking my cousins and I to a vacation every summer, it's pretty awesome. I wouldn't have experienced so many things without them. So it's always nice the week before we leave to just get ready and plan out the stay. BUT THE DRAFT, I'M SO PUMPED.
Now, as of right now the blog is having some technical difficulties. Hopefully that's sorted out soon. So whether you're on the regular website or the design blog, let's get to the concepts!
Peterborough Petes Concept - Brandon C.
Boston Pride Concept - Lucas Daitchman
Connecticut Whale Concept - Lucas Daitchman
Tottenham Concept - Matt G.
New Jersey Devils - Mike S.
Boston Celtics Concept - Taylor Roy
Brooklyn Nets Concept - T-Roy
T-Roy like I said had another simple look. This with Brooklyn. I wouldn't be surprised if the Islanders come out with something similar to this for their eventual third jersey. Striping, simple, effective. BOLD. Again I think T-Roy nailed every decision here. Maybe just maybe this could look even better with a bit of gold? No I kid I kid......but maybe....
I'm giving my COTW nod to the Boston Celtics Concept today by none other than T-Roy. T-Roy came out on all cylinders tonight and really took his momentum home. T-Roy is just one of those players you don't find very often. A generational type designer if I do say so myself. Not a surprise here he gets nominated. Back to Bob McKenzie with his further analysis!
Have a fantastic Tuesday everyone! I plan to post next week even though I'm in Myrtle. Hopefully this makes up for a couple late posts in the past. Woops.
