Fat Cats Outstyle "SENS"
Ottawa has a new baseball team (the Fat Cats!!) and, whaddya know, they unveiled their new logo yesterday. Not only have they adopted the traditional civic colours of black and red, but they've seemingly upstaged the Senators by using a stylized "O "logo very reminiscent of the shoulder patches the Sens currently wear.
The "O" logo is very popular with local hockey fans but the Senators unfortunately opted for the much less attractive "SENS" wording on their black third jerseys.
While the Fat Cats logo is kind of weird with that cat's eye thing going on, give them credit for taking an already popular logo concept and stealing it from under the noses of the big tuna in town.
It's a shame the Senators didn't fully embrace the "O" sooner, because they have the potential to have some of the nicest uniforms in the league, rather than the already dated Reebok Edge look they sport now.
All the elements for a classic uniform are there, they just need someone with some taste to put it all together for them.
