It's a freaking pirate. Using his leg as a hockey stick.

Also: September 19th is International Talk Like a Pirate Day.

The Admirals have one of the best logo/uniform combos in hockey. I'm a fan.

Easily one of the worst things I've ever seen.


I remember when it came out that that logo is actually this guy...





...their logo from the 70's who drowned, honed his hockey skills at the bottom of Lake Michigan, then returned to walk amongst us.

I can't find the orginally story but here's an old post from the AHL board.

as far as the actual picture goes it's pretty cool. for a hockey logo it's terrible, but still better then the slug.

i do like this.

i don't like the OP's picture of it though. i hate complicated logos. then again, the slug is the complete opposite of complicated and it blows donkey balls.

just the head >>> full logo >>> donkey balls >>>> slug

Good call.

I actually think I like the picture better than the actual logo. Although I think both are cool.

when this first came out, i found the designer on myspace and heckled him. something about skeleton penises. too long ago to remember.

absolutely horrendous though. boggles my mind how some of these dweebs get design jobs and it passes through the bureaucracy of office nerds.

There are several ties between the ownership of the Brewers and the ownership of the Admirals, including former Brewers pitcher Ben Sheets owning a portion of the team...

Actually, that's one of those games I don't play enough.

I'm still new enough to online consoles (I've had 360, but I just got online within the year) that I just don't think of my XBox Live games when I'm bored. I've hardly played Puzzle Quest: Galactrix, and I played the crap out of the first one on PS2.....of course, I'm also a sucker for medieval times and fantasy and such, slightly moreso than the science fiction (but only slightly)

Pirates didn't have navys, so no command structure above captain. Soo pirate admiral just doesn't work.

Nevermind that it's a skeleton.

Ice skating on one leg.

And using the other leg as a hockey stick.
