The Met's Pizza Box

I love when I am listening to ABC News in the morning and the topic of logo design is a main story. Charlie Gibson briefed me on the uproar over the Met's new sleeve patch for the 2009 season. At its best, it's being said to resemble the logo of a certain pizza company...

"Though some conspiracy theorists are saying that this is the Mets way of distancing the team from CitiGroup, that isn't the case here. MLB doesn't allow commercial logos on uniforms, so that wouldn't even be an issue. More likely, it's a case of the Mets being as dull and uninspiring as their '08 bullpen. They could've held a coloring contest among preschoolers and still ended up with a better design than the one above."

Come on Met's logo designer! You are embarrassing the rest of us.

P.S. I am aware this is about my fifth or sixth baseball post. I promise I will stop now.••••

I also enjoy baseball posts. Or anything sports related really.

I do not enjoy this logo. What is this? It looks like the person could've made it in Word. That's not design.
