Connie, et al.

I am looking for sites that I can purchase logos legally. I don't mind spending a buck or two to be legal.

The one I found above I used because it said it could be downloaded free.

You all have come up with some very creative names for our new & improved Spark Team. I would be hard pressed to choose one. I see that NO_EQL has posted the title, "This is Birdland! Baltimore Sports Team". Let's go with this for now; we can always talk some more about it.

NO_EQL, I have been looking for a "dual" picture of both teams' logos but have not yet been successful. If you find something that showcases both birds, go ahead and put it up on the Team page.

Boss

PGH has been deactivated by SP because of no posts for 3 months. Orioles faces the same challenge during the "off season". By combining FB and BB under the same banner we can secure the Spark Team year round.

I am sure we loose some team members over the year because of constantly doing the shell game of "Team, Team, Where's the Team"

This is a possible solution for both sports in securing an ongoing Spark Team. At least that is the motivation for doing the merger.

What is your thoughts?

Hi all! I just spent 20 minutes typing up a lengthy message about why I rarely log on and what we might do next to settle on a new team name; only to lose the whole thing with one click of the wrong button emoticon So, Boss, check with N0_EEL about the Ravens Spark Team he was complaining about. I don't do football and was only passing on his comments.

As for the new Team name, I agree with N0_EQL that the name should contain the word Baltimore, and I think it should also have the word Sports in it so that anyone searching for such a team could easily find us. Now, I can list all the suggestions and we could vote. Or N0_EQL and I could just choose one. Let me know what you'd all like to do and I'll proceed.

And last, BUT NEVER LEAST, how about those Os?! They never cease to amaze and I'm so excited about how well they are playing this season. I think the Rays don't stand a chance in this series.

My recommendation would be to include the name Baltimore in the title somewhere. That way people using the search feature on Spark Teams will find you. Even "Base-Baltimore / Foot-Baltimore" or something generic that lets people know that it a Baltimore sports group.

Well, I belong to both teams and I am on the Oriole site much more. I have a suggestion for the team name - "THE BAD BIRDS OF BALTIMORE" - saw it on a really neat T-shirt with both birds on there:)

There is a fairly active Spark team for Ravens fans called "Purple Bird House." Is that the one you describe as moribund Connie?

I received this email from a member of the Ravens Spark Team and am sharing it with all of you. "Hello, There has been an ongoing Ravens sparkteam. But it goes in active due to the offseason being more than 3 months and no activity. would there be any interest in your group to making it a joint Baltimore sports group. This would allow the "team" to exist year round as the overlap is very small between the two sports.

This also may draw some Oriels fans to the Ravens and some of the Ravens fans to the Oriels as both stadiums are in close proximity.

Regards
David Ronk"

BOSSI 61 has also started a discussion thread about other Teams that have been part of the Baltimore Sports Scene.

What are everyone's thoughts about changing this team to one called Baltimore Sports Fans or The Baltimore Sports Scene? We can spend all year cheering both the Orioles emoticon and the Ravens emoticon .
Like David said in his message, this Team kinds of dies during the off season, as does the Ravens Spark Team. If we put them together, we'd have something to talk about all the time!
Before any permanent changes are made though, I want to know how you feel about it. emoticon emoticon

Looking forward to hearing from you
connie
