National Chicken Month With a Sports Logo Twist

September 4, 2016

Happy National Chicken Month! That’s right, you read that correctly. September is National Chicken Month! This is when chicken producers and grocery stores will rally together and offer promotions on chicken, recognize brands that are great partners with chicken, and offer some outstanding recipes for… you guessed it, chicken! To aid in the celebration of National Chicken Month, we at Awesome Sports Logos are going to take a look at a couple of sports teams whose logos feature a chicken. These two teams should be considered the best liaisons between athletics and the chicken industry. With such a strong, deep connection to chicken, what better time to recognize these two teams than National Chicken Month! Let’s see what they have to offer!

The University of South Carolina Gamecocks has one mean kind of chicken in their logo.

Getting their name from Revolutionary War hero Thomas Sumter, who was said to have “fought like a gamecock” in battle, this college team is rocking both an awesome name and an awesome logo. A large black “C” immediately catches the eye, but what’s in the middle of that letter is the main attraction. This is no ordinary chicken. It’s one tough Gamecock. With feathers ruffled and flared about, it appears lunging forward with fierce claws and a beak that means business. Like their namesake, South Carolina looks to be ready to fight hard on the football battlefield. While we absolutely do not condone chicken fighting, we do condone good, hard play on the football field! Our next team knows a thing or two about having a good, hard fight in football.

The University of Delaware Fightin’ Blue Hens may not have the meanest, or most sophisticated chicken logo in the world of sports, but they definitely have some history and comedy behind their look.

In honor of the state bird of Delaware, UD gets both their logo and team name. The Blue Hen became the state bird of Delaware in 1939, and is one of only three state birds not native to the United States. The Fightin’ Blue Hens take pride in their state, and have refigured the Blue Hen into a look worthy of a sports team. This blue chicken may look like something out of a Saturday morning cartoon, but it can most certainly hold its own. With mascot YoUDee making the mascot hall of fame in 2006, and winning the Mascot National Championship in 2009, this team has built a legacy on the chicken! They also know how to produce QB’s. Two of note are 2002 NFL MVP Rich Gannon and Super Bowl Champion Joe Flacco. Go Blue Hens!

While these two logos do well in honoring National Chicken Month, they aren’t the best of the best. Of course, the most awesome chicken logo of all comes from right here at Awesome Sports Logos! The Cocksville Blockers deserve to be the face for National Chicken Month!

Okay, we admit that this is a made up city, but how could we resist? This city name and logo go hand in hand. We were going to use Cockeysville, Maryland but that is pronounced much differently. This angry rooster will stop at nothing to get in your way and block any of your moves. Of course we’re talking about football moves, what were you thinking of? This Cocksville Blockers funny t-shirt is our best seller and for good reason. Be sure to add this super soft tee to your t-shirt of the month club rotation!

Thanks for reading and supporting us!

YOU are AWESOME!
