Hail To The Chiefs

Finally! After ten long years of having to explain that, "No, I have no idea what a SkyChief is either," the 'Cuse will finally have the Chiefs officially back as the moniker of the local ball club. Sometimes the decision-making at One Tex Simone Drive can be a little, shall we say, inscrutable, but only props for this decision. And with no Native American elements the new logo, it seems like a win-win situation. While the old chieftain's logo has some sentimental value for me, I like the train motif of the new one - ties in well with the "intermodal transportation center" next door, and I think we could all agree that part of town could use some tying together.

Now if they can only relocate Alliance Bank Stadium downtown, and rename it Mac...(hey, it could even be in honor GMac instead of Gen. Douglas A...)

So we moved from a baseball bat that looked like an airplane/missile to a train...what's down the road? a gondola themed logo?

At least the Salty Dog had some bit of significance to our city.
