Endure (And Vote)

August is a terrible month for hockey fans. The big free agents have been signed, arbitration hearings are all but done, and there's nothing to talk about except what games you'll be getting tickets for.

For Avalanche fans, there's still Joe Sakic's fate to be discussed, but don't think that any regular blogger actually has any clue as to what Sakic will do. So what is there to do instead?

You could put on ESPN and catch Major League Baseball, the X-Games, Little League World Series, or the World Series of Poker.

But if you're like me, and need something more than 11-year-old baseball games, check out TSN's NHL Logo Rankings. The Hockey News put together a complete list that ranks the 30 logos in the NHL. While the top four (all original six teams) may be pretty solid, the Avalanche come in at #19 seems a bit out of place to me.

Much like New Jersey, it’s fairly right-on-the-nose; it’s an Avalanche coming down an ‘A.’

Now I don't know if I'm blinded by being a fan, but how Colorado's logo was beaten by a "flaming C," a "straight-forward predator," and a "simple coyote," I have no idea.

But hey, at least we don't just have a font. - Best Sports Blogs, Sports Blogger Rankings
