Les Expos de Montreal

We told you they were coming and here they are, in all their powder blue glory.

What about that logo...what do you think?  We love it.  In case you've never really thought about it, and we don't know why you wouldn't, but anyway, do you see the "e", the "m" and the "b" within the logo?  The "e" is for Expos, the "m" for Montreal and the "b" for baseball.  

A couple more random facts for you to impress your freinds with:  the Expos name comes from the World Exposition Fair which was held in Montreal in 1967, two years before the Expos began play. Also, this 1982 jersey has a patch commemorating the 1982 MLB All Star Game which was held in Montreal.  The "Partie D'Etoiles" marked the first time that the game was played outside of the USA.

Just a few facts for you to share at your Labor Day events this weekend.  Have fun.

These are sick!  The Expos have always been one of my favorite team logos from baseball.  If I'm not mistaken, the Expos were also the first to introduce the pinwheel look back in 69.  Today, it's one of the most popular cap styles among sports fans and fashion heads.
