I know we've been tossing around ideas for the next tournament for a while. Obviously, I'm prepared to move out of the logo arena — making me wonder whether I should change the name of the blog. Anyway, check out the poll in the sidebar and cast your vote. Lots of folks want to do goalie masks. I'm up for that. We can also do jerseys, arenas, concept art, etc. Feel free to place write-in votes in the comments of this post or email me directly. I'm leaving the poll open for about a week so I can get a feel for what you guys are interested in doing next.

LIVE FROM VANCOUVER!
Unfortunately I didn't have time last night to post the 30th Freak Out installment. So here it is a little belated. And I've got to start out with something just downright ridiculous. As you know the Quest For The Worst ended this week with the Anaheim Mighty Ducks' third jersey logo taking the cake. It faced the Boston Bruins' secondary logo from the '70s and '80s. Imagine those two logos getting together.
Pretty horrific, eh? (When in Canada...)
Anyway, we've got all American team artwork for this Freak Out post today, by the way. We continue on with the ultimate American team — the Rangers. Where do they play again? Could it be the... "big apple"?
It's the logo I'd envision for a team made up entirely of elementary school teachers. And skylines across jerseys never seem to work.
And they have a better Statue of Liberty logo than that. See previous.
Up next: the St. Louis Blues who happen to be in town tonight facing the Canucks. Couple of really freaky concepts here.
Yet another yellow jersey.
And a sweater which uses old colors and an even older logo.
I'll finish things off with a logo that I debated posting here. On the one hand it's an abstract, unique design. On the other hand, it's abstract... very abstract.
And so ends another episode of the Freak Out series — live from Vancouver. I've got a couple more days left here in town. We went up to Capilano Suspension Bridge and Grouse Mountain today. Best day of the trip by far!
