On Episode #12 Bruce is back after a long absence to cover some hockey related topics. (Who are we fooling, the show starts with more baseball talk).

The logo I discuss at the beginning (the Daytona Tortugas) can be found here -


Jack Buckley's Baseball Tours - Do you want to spend a week to 10 days touring a section of the country and catching ALL the baseball games you possibly can?  Well then you might want to check this out.


Minor League Hockey Jerseys - Toledo Walleye play as Batman and Riddler -  The title pretty much covers it.  Its seems minor league baseball is great for logos, but minor league hockey is where it's at for goofy jerseys.  No better example can be found than the Toledo Walleye celebrating Batman Night by playing in 1966 Batman jerseys and the away team playing in 1966 Riddler jerseys.



Minnesota Magicians - So I feel like all I can really do is post a link, you're welcome.
