*Scroll down for the New Orleans Pelicans new official logo. Scroll further down for choices that would have been better.

I’ve been all over this Pelicans thing. I love the name. I’m apparently the only one. I have (or, had) high hopes for the team and its new nickname. I thought there was an opportunity to own the moniker, like the Myrtle Beach Pelicans own theirs. I thought they could have taken it and ran with it. I wanted a cool logo that played up the Light Blue that would obviously go with a Pelicans logo and I wanted some gold trim and some Fleur de Lis that would obviously suit the team’s Louisiana location.

This was not what I had in mind…

The logo will officially be unveiled later today, meaning that the above shots are apparently a very accurate (almost to the detail) portrayal of what New Orleans will wear next year.

All credit goes to SportsLogos.net and NESN.com for “Breaking” the story and the photos. (Although SportsLogos credits TigerDroppings.com for unveiling the new decal.)

All discredit goes to New Orleans for screwing up a completely new and innovative marketing opportunity. I guess we can’t all be as good as the Brooklyn Nets. It’s too bad Jay-Z wasn’t raised in the Bayou.

*Seriously, does that logo above equal the quality or aesthetic beauty of any of these below?

Didn’t think so…
