IHA Fantasy League

If you are a fan of hockey and logos like me, then you should love this. One of my favorite hockey sites is The best part of the site is the user submitted logos, and recently they did created a complete fantasy league with names & locations, as well as logos for each team. Every step of the way, the visitors of the site got to vote on the winners for each location in the league, name for each team and logo for each team. Here is a poster I made of the completed league. My favorite logos from the league are the Edmonton Seahawks and Atlanta Fire. Be sure to click on the graphic below to make it full size!

Mighty Ducks Golden Book

Being a big Disney fan, I quickly became a fan of the Anaheim Mighty Ducks once they joined the NHL in 1993. I have never seen any of the Mighty Ducks movies, but I love collecting any Mighty Ducks stuff I can find. Back in the early 90's there was a great shop at the Disneyland Hotel that specialized in Mighty Ducks merchandise and I picked up some great stuff including a video of their inaugural game (they got clobbered by the Red Wings), and a ticket from their inaugural home game sealed in lucite. I have kind of lost interest once Disney sold the team and they decided to become just the Ducks, minus the Mighty. But I did find this Golden Book featuring the Mighty Ducks recently and had to pick it up. I guess I can kind of see why they are trying to distance themselves for this image. But come on, the original Mighty Ducks logo is one of the best hockey logos ever and their mascot Wild Wing was pretty cool too!
