Announcement Coming

With the second round polls opening this week for the Secondary Logo Tournament, I've decided it's time for a big announcement. The last three logo tournaments have been obvious. But now the question remains as to what category of logos will be voted on next. Well based on emails and comments over the last several weeks, I've come to a decision I think (hope) you all will enjoy.

On Friday I'll announce the logo tournament that will follow this one.

I'm waiting because I want it to be a surprise. We've talked about a lot of things on here. Best center ice logo... best arena... even best locker room was suggested... I won't say what it is or isn't. Just be sure to vote all week on the second round polls and be sure to drop in on Friday night when I announce what it will be.

As a side note, I just thought I'd let you all know how the holiday schedule will work here in terms of logo voting. I'm anticipating a sharp drop in visitors for Christmas as most of you will likely be with your families, so even though technically the first poll of the third round could open on Christmas Eve, I'm pushing it back to Wednesday, December 26.

That means for five days there won't be a new poll for this tournament. But I am, however, going to post a new unrelated poll on Saturday that I think a lot of you have been waiting for.

Anyway, keep voting and stay tuned for Friday's big announcement!

^^^I hope you dont mean Sam Katz

if so say goodbye to your beloved Edmonton Oilers

I know not only is he my retarded mayor he owns our baseball team the Winnipeg Goldeyes

I went to a game once and there were no more than 200 people in the stads and it was boring as hell. He even made a stupid desicion in that game to pull a guy that was a sure win and put in some skinny guy that lost it

It's Daryl Katz that is going to buy the oilers.

Some locker rooms are amazing...lucky NHL players. Anyways, you should do goalie helmets. That would be pretty cool.

Not related to upcoming tournaments, but what happened to the panel of "experts" and whatever they were supposed to be doing?

im going to announce that something important will happen not today, but on friday so fellow readers, you'll have to wait a few days until the announcement for the next tournament is official.

that about sums it up.

It just let's people know to make sure to stop by the site on Friday. Nothing wrong with that.

Hey, wait. That's what I said. So you have an announcement too? What a coincidence.

why do people announce upcoming announcements? I hate that shit.

Because I like to annoy you specifically. Mission accomplished.

Exactly. Thank you.

Where I work, we have a word for this. Efforting.

I don't know how much work you guys envision is involved with this site, but it's probably more than you think. And while I'm more than flattered that you guys are that interested in it, I really will get to it when I have the time.

Apologies for the delay. Way too many OT hours at the real job these days. Thanks for understanding.

Jason said...

Sorry, Chris. I didn't mean to come off like I was demanding more from the site or anything like that. I was just curious since it hadn't been mentioned in a while.

Not at all. Totally understandable. I'm glad you're that interested in it. Expect to see some news on it soon.
