New objective for this blog.

Not like I need anything else on my plate at the moment, but I’ve been thinking about what to do with this blog now that I’m officially over at G4, and I’ll have some sort of gaming blog thing going on over there at some point.

I’ll still keep this one personal, with gaming cross-posts and other ramblings about life, but I think I’ve found a new driving force. As soon as we wrap up E3 and me and the boys get settled in at the new gig, I’m going to use this space to get the Milwaukee Brewers to change their team logo.

Why, you ask?

Because the current logo:

…is boring as all get-out. And because the old logo, “Ball and Glove”:

…is one of the greatest logos not just in sports, but of all marketing (if you can’t see it, the ball glove forms an M and a B.) It just needs a modern refresh for a new era of Milwaukee baseball. With WISN’s Andy Kendeigh calling for the elimination of Retro Fridays, I get the vibe that the time is right for a grassroots campaign to take off.

The Internet can be good for this kind of stuff, so we’ll see what happens over the summer.

The first goal is to come up with a catchy name for this project. Something along the lines of “Operation <catchy name>” or “The <catchy name> Movement” that can rally support amongst Brewers fans worldwide and the local Milwaukee media.
