Blues vs Stars


The Aesthetics
Both logos are simple and strong if you can look past the wordmarks in the Stars logo. Unfortunately, for this point, I can't.

The Nickname
The all-consuming ball of fire we call a Star would have its way with anything on this planet. Even the Blues and those who sing them.

The Analysis
The Blues logo is a blue musical note. Very fitting. I did like the shoulder logo they wore in the '90s with the blue trumpets but I think most St. Louis fans would revolt over that one. As for the Stars, if you can go beyond the wordmarks, which I can for this point, you can't help but notice the the giant star is by itself — like the Lone Star State of Texas. The Blues logo really makes no references to the Gateway City.

can anyone smell someone who has WAY too much free time?

Well, you'll get no argument from me on that score. On occasion I do find myself with a little too much extra time on my hands. Gotta fill it with something.

And while I haven't yet learned how to smell things through a computer, sometimes I can take 10 or 15 minutes a day to write something fun.

Thanks for stopping by and feel free to comment if you have anything useful to say in the future. I appreciate any and all comments.
