Last night, while Mets fans were busy watching Jacob deGrom striking everybody out and the good guys dropping yet another seesaw affair against the Marlins, the Mets' media team were up to some sneaky business. Thanks to a few sharp-eyed logo experts and the power of Twitter, we have learned that the Mets may have attempted to change their logo last night without an official announcement.
The official logo, which has been in place ever since the Mets came into existence in 1962, features a skyline with a United Nations building on the far right. Briefly on display last night on the team's Facebook and Twitter page was a logo with the CitiGroup Center replacing the UN building. The "new" logo has since been removed. The Mets' Facebook page now sports a placeholder logo, while their Twitter page has switched back to the original UN-featured logo.
At this point, it's still unclear if this brief change is indicative of anything going forward. Meanwhile, a number of prominent Mets beat writers have confirmed that the logo will in fact remain the same. Although it's fairly inconsequential, drama in the logo world is definitely something only the Mets would be able to come up with. Chalk one up for our never-ending supply of LOLMets moments.
