Lol yes, I couldn't believe nobody said it. It's an "M" just split into 3 colors.

I don't have an explanation for the Blazers one, just weird.

I just read recently that the C in the Canadiens logo does not stand for Canadiens and that the H stands for Hockey (just in case you were confused). Club du Hockey or something like that. Kooky Canadians. :-)
Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

I always thought that the black represented a "blazed trail" and the red represented a fiery trail that was still being blazed... But what do I know?

It says right on their site that the logo is a modern graphic interpretation of the game of basketball, five players from one side playing against five players from another.

So obviously the people in Portland are just as kooky as the Canadians. :-b

I actually thought that the H stood for 'Habs', and never even considered that it stood for hockey, lol. :-?

One thing we can all agree on is kooky canadiens, though :-)

whose trial? O:-) O:-) :-D


eek. Obviously I meant trail, but trial is oddly fitting given the team we are discussing ;-D
