The Tigers schedule wallpaper has the final two games of the season on it, which take place in October. I wasn't able to do cram the September schedules for the Minor League Baseball teams on last month's wallpapers so they are included here.
If NHL Network picks up either of the Red Wings' first two games I'll update that wallpaper along with the DSC and DSW.
UPDATE (9/13): The Tigers game on the 24th has been moved to a 1:05 PM start and to the Fox network. The Tigers wallpaper, DSC and DSW have been updated to reflect this change.
I also reverted the FSD logos on the Tigers and Red Wings wallpapers to a version that I previously used. It's the same font used in the "Detroit" part of the Fox Sports Detroit logo. The old version was something I created that was based on the FS1 logo.
I've made a font change on the wallpapers, calendar, and the site. The new one is called Abolition.
Coming August 8th: 2016 football schedule wallpapers for Michigan, Michigan State, Central Michigan, Eastern Michigan, Western Michigan, Bowling Green, and Toledo.
Coming August 22nd: 2016 Detroit Lions schedule wallpaper.
The Pistons will be participating in the Orlando Pro Summer League once again. Check the DSC and DSW for the schedule.
Some time next month I'll have season schedule wallpapers for the Detroit Lions and the NCAA football teams (Michigan, Michigan State, Central Michigan, Eastern Michigan, Western Michigan, Bowling Green, and Toledo).
Baseball and drafts!
Only baseball and the NBA Draft Lottery this month.
I've tweaked the info box on the team wallpapers so that the "home" and "away" color difference is more prominent. Also, on the Detroit Sports Wallpaper I added a thicker outline to the Tigers game logos and the team script logos at the bottom.
It's the busiest month of the year with ten team schedule wallpapers.
Playoff updates will be made when needed to the wallpapers, DSC and DSW.
UPDATE (4/12): The first round schedule for the Red Wings and Tampa Bay Lightning has been added to the DSC and DSW. Also, the Tigers and Pistons wallpapers have been updated with some TV network changes. I'll have more updates out when the Pistons' first round schedule is out.
Just yesterday I finalized the latest wallpaper design. It utilizes a carbon fiber texture and I think it looks better than the old "scratched" design.
In fact, I like it so much that I updated all of the 2015 NCAA Football and Detroit Lions schedule wallpapers with the new design.
Debuting this month is the Flint Firebirds of the Ontario Hockey League.
Coming August 15th: 2015 football schedule wallpapers for Michigan, Michigan State, Eastern Michigan, Central Michigan, Western Michigan, Toledo, and Bowling Green.
Coming August 22nd: 2015 Detroit Lions schedule wallpaper.
This month we're throwing back to the 1970s. Each wallpaper uses the ultimate 70s typeface (Bauhaus) and I brought back the "faded bars" background design to make it more era appropriate.
Every logo on the Tigers wallpaper is from the aforementioned decade, with the exception of the Tampa Bay Rays; I'm using their "fauxback" logo in this instance. Old school TV network logos are also utilized (with the exception of the very new Fox Sports 1).
The other teams have retro graphics (with the exception of the Loons because they have never made a change in their short history) and cap logos for opponent indicators. I wanted to do something different for these teams but using old logos wasn't an option because so many teams do not have these and I wanted to minimize confusion.
A few notes for this month:
• The Tigers game at the Yankees on Saturday the 20th is currently listed as "no TV". YES is carrying the game for New York so I'm assuming that Fox Sports Detroit will broadcast it. If this turns out to not be the case, I'll update the wallpaper and the DSC/DSW.
• The Midwest League All-Star Game on Tuesday the 23rd will be broadcast on the American Sports Network. WBSF CW46 will carry the game in the Tri-Cities; it will be on WWMT-2 CW7 in western Michigan (some Lugnuts fans may be able to pick this station up). There is no Lansing-area station broadcasting the game.
"Retro Month" returns for July!
Baseball, baseball, and more baseball. There''s also the rest of the NFL Draft and the NBA Draft lottery on the DSC and DSW. Hope you like baseball!
Detroit Pistons • Detroit Red Wings • Detroit Tigers • Grand Rapids Drive • Grand Rapids Griffins • Great Lakes Loons • Kalamazoo Wings • Lansing Lugnuts • Toledo Mud Hens • Toledo Walleye • West Michigan Whitecaps
UPDATE (4/15): The Red Wings' first round playoff schedule has been added to the DSC and DSW. The Tigers had their game on the 21st versus the Yankees moved to FSD+ so the Tigers wallpaper has been updated as well.
I am now using the logo outlines (or lack thereof) specified by the teams themselves instead of outlining every logo the same way. Exceptions had to be made for the Cleveland Indians and the Pittsburgh Pirates logos. These logos do not specify any outlines; ones had to be added for visibility purposes.
The font has changed to IRON MAN OF WAR 001 RIVETLESS on the wallpapers and the site. I wanted something a bit different and this fits the bill.
The Detroit Sports Calendar and Wallpaper will both be updated with Red Wings (and Pistons, by sheer miracle) playoff games once the schedule is announced. Further updates will happen if necessary.
