I made a bet in 2003 that the Devil Rays would win the 2008 World Series. Oh so close.

ya i agree that the player affect is not so good...also the black lettering doesnt blend at all, the rest of it looks like a solid start to a sig if you fix those two things

yeah i tried just desaturating him but it looked terrible. and i'm not a big fan so far of the program, but maybe it'll grow on me. any suggestions on a different player effect/text?
