Cleveland State Vikings

Every year they have the NCAA Tournament in Cleveland they play the games at the Wolstein Center on the campus of Cleveland State University. And every year you see that funny logo in the middle of floor of the basketball with a shield and a sword. I always love to see that logo. That means it's tourney time, also know in my world as Christmas.

On the left in the above picture is Cleveland State's primary logo. A green blob of a viking. It's really a cheesy and silly logo but still very endearing and fun. But when you replace his green head with a basketball it reaches a whole new level of goofy. It's totally silly and ridiculous and I love how they tried to make it look mean and serious. That just makes it look even more silly.

That being said, I wouldn't have it any other way.
Every time I see a game from the Wolstein Center in the tourney that logo makes me smile. There's nothing like big time college basketball played at it's most serious passing over the basketball viking every 35 seconds. It makes this otherwise hardcore and hard hearted basketball fan's heart melt every single year.
