Top 5 Bird Logos in Sports

There are a lot of sports teams named after birds.  Some are bad-ass birds, like falcons or eagles.  Others are, well, mighty ducks...  Here's our take on the 5 best bird logos of all time from the 4 big sports (MLB, NFL, NBA, NHL):

5: Toronto Blue Jays - Always liked the retro feel of this Blue Jays logo.  And of course, Blue Jays are known for winning, so it's a great choice.  Or are they known for being Canadian?  Not sure...

4: Seattle Seahawks - Very clean, crisp logo.  Comes in two colors--blue and green.  Is it just me, or does the bird look more weary than angry?

3: St. Louis Hawks - Well this one was short-lived, but dig the hawk, he's just about to juke you!  Seriously, this is a good logo for a Division 2 college team, but this was pro!  (Decades ago, but still...)

2: Pittsburgh Penguins - The gentle, docile penguin is a monster on the ice.  Look at his eyebrow--he's angry!  And check out the cut of his jib--he's buff!  

1: Baltimore Orioles - There's always been something pretty damn awesome about this cartoon bird and his over-sized bat.  He's going to strike out, because he's on the Orioles, but it's still pretty neat.  Although, he's wearing shoes, but not pants--what the f***!!!

Neither of the cardinals made it (St. Louis, MLB; Arizona, NFL), but there was too much competition and it's a strong list.  What bird logos am I missing?  Yeah, a bunch of college ones, but what else?  Hit me with your comments below, and check us out on Facebook where we try to make you laugh...

  2. As for #1, you don't need pants for traction on the base paths. Sliding into home, on the other hand, can get awfully messy.
