Finally! A Post!

Do I have anything else to do? No. So I've decided to write a post for my few readers! Figuring you want more of my writing and concepts, I write for HCI tomorrow so check out that


                                                                                                                                                                   

Yakball or Hockey first?

Yakball...

LSU Tigers
So I started a Yakball thread on Sportslogos.net and this was one of many suggestions of teams to do. For the jersey, I took inspiration from the schools football uniforms and put some striping on the top of the jersey. I also made a chest stripe that continues onto the arms.

Team Macedonia Yakball
This concept was made as a fix to Ricky's concept (Ricky was the old HJC writer and now will write on HCI). It's a bit different, but other than some logo controversy was quite liked on the Sportslogos.net forum.

Wagner Seahawks

Another suggestion from the forums, Wagner is a College on Long Island. Check out the unique nameplate! Yeah I care that much about the nameplate... Anyway I went classy for Wagner, while being new and different.

Hockey Time!

Fishsticks Comp. Entry
This was my entry into HJC's Fishsticks comp. It features the four stripe design that stands for the four cup wins the Isles have, while also replicating the design on the logo. I kept a similar font to what they had on the originals.

Admirals Comp. Entry
This, like the one before, was an entry into an HJC comp. I think I came in 9th with 16 points in the voting. The blue jersey's striping is based on the logo, as the white jerseys  was my attempt of trying something different. 

Carolina Hurricanes 
 I was honored to have this concept up for CotW on HJC. Thanks to Jets96 and Jersey Fanatic for the nominations. The purpose of the concept was to use a "Nikeified" version of the Whalers colors. With this being up for CotW I think that everything that I wanted was achieved.

So how do do think I did with these? Tell me!

Bye! And comback soon!

Celebrating the HCIHL Draft With Yakball

Hey guys, with the lightened posting schedule on HCI, requiring me to post every Tuesday and Friday, I can get back to my blog! We had our HCIHL draft yesterday night and I must say I think I did ok. Here is my Express' roster.
 It's in the order I picked the players, and you can see my little "D" panic where I picked 5 defensemen in a row! Only thing I am really missing is a good goalie. Wanted Bobrovsky, but the London Sabreswords, run by contributor Alan John Herbert, got him first. I am happy that I have Jussi Jokinen on my team. And let me tell you, getting Loui Eriksson in the 21st round was a steal! Should I go for some trades or is this good enough? Tell me!

U of South Carolina Gamecocks Yakball 
U of SC was my mom's school when she went to college (now she works at PSU) so I thought it would be cool to make a concept for them. These are heavily based on the schools football uniforms, but with some changes to make them unique. I might make a third based on the football thirds, and if I decide to, I will make an update with it in it.


Cross League Classic: Rochester Americans V.S. EC D├╝sseldorf
For my second Cross League Classic game I feature a DEL team V.S. Rochester. I think both jerseys are pretty self-explanatory myself, so I will let you judge how they look. 


Cross League Classic: Abbotsford Heat V.S. TPS Turku
The first game in my series is the Heat of Abbotsford playing TPS Turku of the SM-Liiga, newly named Liiga (National League). The Heat will play in Atlanta Flames style jerseys, the logo is the Atlanta Flames logo, the idea came from Justin. Also since Reebok keeps making squared off yokes, put that in the stitching pattern. The TPS jersey adds yoke striping and cuffs too their already classic jersey style. I think I did pretty good with it and am happy with how it turned out.

In other news, I went to the Color Run at Penn State today, and even though it took about an hour to get the color out, it was pretty fun! Ok, bye thanks for reading, and keep coming back!

More HCIHL and London

Hey, we have more HCIHL logo previews and and a guest concept from Alan John Herbert.




Here are the 2nd and 3rd pictures in the Springfield Sharpshooters logo unveiling.

London Knights (Alan John Herbert)
First things first, I personally like the lighter green and tan found on the alternate. I guess the home and away isn't that bad, and I like the choice of fonts. I do prefer their current set, but the alternate is really good. I also don't like the shade of gold used on the home and away. Concept Rating: 7/10

Thanks for reading and sorry for the late post.
