Meet the new Minnesota Vikings logo, same as the old Minnesota Vikings logo (mostly)

The Minnesota Vikings unveiled their new logo on Thursday.

Or at least they said it was a new logo. I'm frankly not sure whether or not to believe them because the two logos below look identical at first glance.

OK, so the Norsemen aren't carbon copies of each other if you look closely. And in the team's defense, they are advertising the new design as an "enhancement" of the old look.

However, if you're not into playing those "what's different" picture games at your local watering hole, Vikings.com helpfully pointed out the five major differences between the old and new logo:
1. Horn Shape: The shape of the horns has been adjusted and the shading in the horns has changed.

2. Horn Base: The base of the horn now resembles the horn on the players’ helmets.

3. Face Detail: Thicker lines have been added to the mustache and face.

4. Vikings Gold: The Vikings Gold is now brighter and less brassy.

5. The Braid: The braid has been shortened, resulting in a reduced logo height.

The Vikings are moving into a new stadium by 2016 and the team says this "evolution" will allow them to make the transition without doing a complete overhaul of the signage around its current offices. They also announced that the "new" Norseman will be available on gear starting this spring, which I guess is good news for the thousands of Vikings fans who felt his braids were too long.

The Vikings.com article ended with another teaser: "We are looking forward to many exciting changes for our team and fans in the next few years, leading up to the opening of our new stadium. These logo enhancements are just the beginning..."
