BREAKING NEWS!!! The Los Angeles Dodgers are no longer a baseball team. On Thursday, Dodgers unveiled a slight variation of their logo and announced that they would be playing games in the LA Rams stadium. Wait…this just in, it is actually the Tampa Bay Lightning who are moving. Based off of the logo I just assumed that the Dodgers had just watched a Harry Potter marathon on ABC Family (fuck Freeform) and wanted to spice up their logo a bit with a badass lightning bolt. Bad information, it was actually the Lightning who are moving to Los Angeles. That’s why the colors are the same and the lightning bolt is in the logo.
Hold up. Another misinformed report. It’s the San Diego Chargers who are moving. Wait, what? Why the hell did the Chargers abandon their sweet baby blue and yellow colors? Why did they blatantly copy the Dodgers logo and colors? Why did they move out of the chilliest city in the country to go live in bougie LA? Don’t they know that Meryl Streep lives there, and according to her “football is not art.”
Very smart to rebrand a failing team to pick the most boring logo and colors available. Smart choice Chargers. I can only imagine how Boltman is taking this news.
In their defense, at least their unveiling went better than the Las Vegas Knights. What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas (and then gets posted all over the internet because it was quite possibly the most embarrassing way to launch a new franchise).
Best of luck to the Los Angeles Chargers though. LA is ruthless. Look what it just did to the worst football coach of all time, Jeff Fisher. The man was a head coach in the league for over 20 years and couldn’t last one year in LA. Another failed Hollywood audition. Sad.
UPDATE: The Chargers scramble to recover. The logo still sucks.
