    I ran into this today:

    It's pretty damn cool. I wish I could find a decent resolution copy so I could read the fine print, but it's basically a Dorlang cartogram map - it has different size balls based on the amount of clubs/teams in national leagues around the world, represented by various shields and other info. Apparently it won first place in the mapping contest at the annual GIS conference in San Diego last week. Shore is purty!

    I liked the Dallas Burn logo on the US map. I can't wait to look for all the teams from the USSR.

    Haha, and that's with an FCD crest there, too.

    Not to mention that the only San Jose Earthquakes logo shown there is a version of the older one that was almost never used (the "yellow rays" version found only on some year 2000 franchise stationary and merchandise, and on Rikter the CyberDog's helmet... as opposed to the "silver rays" version that has always been on the jerseys and was quickly established as the team's official logo). :eek:

    GO SAN JOSE EARTHQUAKES!!! :cool:

    lol... to be fair, I think this map was made in the UK, so you can't blame them ;) That and they probably worked on it for years! Still wish I could read it entirely.
