Just days after the Miami Marlins unveiled one of the worst rebrandings in sports, the Blue Jays unveiled one of the best.
Just minutes ago, the Jays trotted out their new look for the first time.

Ha! Get it? I know, I know, it’s kind of weak joke but when you think about it, it’s absolutely true: the Toronto Blue Jays logo is new and old, as it somewhat resembles the one the team used from 1977-1996. What? Did you think I was referring to something else as a weak joke? [...]
