New Orleans Has A Good Curse Thanks to Awesome Sports Logos

October 2, 2012

Today we spotlight one of my favorite t-shirts in our collection, the New Orleans Curse. I love the colors and uniqueness of this logo. In doing research, I was shocked to find that there was never a team called the Curse in New Orleans.Here are the t-shirts we offer.

   

New Orleans has a lot of history with witchcraft, voodoo, and ghosts. In fact, hundreds of thousands of tourists flock to the “Big Easy” each year and besides loving the food and partying on Bourbon Street, they love their cemetery tours. They are nicknamed “Cities of the Dead” because the deceased have to be buried above ground since New Orleans sits on top of a swamp so tourists make their way through stone crypts and mausoleums. Personally, I’ll stick to the food and partying.

We all know about the New Orleans Saints in the NFL and the Hornets in the NBA. Here at Awesome Sports Logos, we like to show you some cool logos in New Orleans that you may have never heard of.

The New Orleans Buccaneers

The Bucs played in the ABA in New Orleans only three years 1967-1970. Notable players were Doug Moe and Larry Brown, two guys that are more known for their coaching years in the NBA. I love this old school logo with the hair on the chest. Whoever created this logo back in the 60’s was well ahead of their time!

The New Orleans Voodoo

Even though the Arena Football League hasn’t been a success, New Orleans Voodoo merchandise sales have. In fact, the team came back in 2011 after folding in 2008 and the new owners grabbed the Voodoo logo. It’s simple but awesome and the bones creating the “V” top it off. Well done!

The New Orleans Zephyrs

For a city that doesn’t have a Major League Baseball team, New Orleans baseball has great history dating all the way back to 1870 where the Cincinnati Red Stockings played five games against the Brooklyn Athletics. The team moved from Denver and the name Zephyrs was kept due to the popular Zephyr roller coaster ride nearby. They’ve had this logo since 2009 and I really like how they incorporated the Fleur-de-lis with the subtle baseball bat in the middle. The Zephyrs are the Triple A affiliate of the Miami Marlins.

The New Orleans Brass

The Brass was in the East Coast Hockey League from 1997-2002. I’m not the hugest fan of this logo but it does embrace the awesome music scene in the Crescent City.

We end with two Roller Derby teams.What? That’s right; Roller Derby has some of the coolest logos going. They don’t mind being edgy and breaking the mold and at Awesome Sports Logos, we appreciate that. We’re going to be doing a “coolest roller derby logos” blog in the near future. Here are two of them.

Big Easy Rollergirls

I like how they use those Saints popular colors and work in a roller derby player into the Fleur-de-lis. Big Easy Rollergirls has been skating since 2005.

Cajun Rollergirls

Now this is a cool logo. Located in Houma, about an hour away, I love how they took a voodoo doll, gave it a female look and laced it up with skates but put great detail into the doll including the pony tails and female skull on its chest. This is a quality logo.

As always, I welcome your suggestions and feedback. The goal is to get people talking about sports logos which I feel is a lost art. Oh yeah and sell some t-shirts along the way. We hope that you check out our awesome t-shirt site and like more than one shirt. Buy three shirts and get the fourth shirt free.
