Hidden Hockey Rink Stadium

Hidden Hockey Rink by Dave Delisle

I’m a fan of the NHL’s outdoor games, but I feel that the viewing experience for fans in lower seats must be somewhat poor, despite being closest to the rink. If only the rink was sunken into the ground! Well now that there are football stadiums with grass fields that slide outside, that is a possibility. Read the rest of this entry

Karate Kid NHL Playoff Bracket

Karate Kid Playoff Bracket by Dave Delisle

For the large image click here.

Here is a design that can translate to any sport with playoffs: the bracket from the background of the All Valley Tournament, seen in the original The Karate Kid. The above depicts the upcoming 2017 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs. Go Flames Go. Read the rest of this entry

Pro Sports Locker Hall Tree

Custom NHL Furniture by Dave Delisle

A Hall Tree is a coat rack combined with a storage bench that is parked by the front door or in a mud room; here are some examples. I feel these Hall Trees could be made to look like player lockers from the pro leagues (NHL, NBA, NFL, etc.). The above design is based on the actual lockers belonging to the Calgary Flames, but you could do this with any pro team. Read the rest of this entry

Star Trek Shuttlecraft Tent

Star Trek Tent by Dave Delisle

Spring is here, so I thought it would be fun to make a geeky tent design that would be perfect for all of your away missions: I present a tent design based on the shuttlecraft from Star Trek. It’s not such a far-fetched idea; Star Trek V began with Kirk, Spock, and McCoy camping in the great outdoors. Read the rest of this entry

A New Spin On Tabletop Hockey

Mini Table Top Hockey by Dave Delisle

This is a combination of THREE hobbies I had when I was kid: tabletop hockey, hockey cards, and hockey sticker albums. I present a mini tabletop hockey set that is adorned with players and stickers found in hockey card packs. This sort of thing would only be possible if a tabletop manufacturer partnered with a hockey card maker.

I was just thinking about how these things I enjoyed as a kid are essentially extinct today. To make these ancient things appealing to today’s kids, I felt a combination of toys and playing cards might draw their attention, sort of like Bakugan. Read the rest of this entry

Diggstown Poster

Diggstown Vs. Poster by Dave's Geeky Ideas

You can buy a high-res poster here.

As you know I do replicas of posters seen in film and television, and my newest entry is a tribute to one of my all-time favorite films, Diggstown (1992). It’s a clean and simple design, the only change I made was to the beer sponsor; it says Millen but if you squint it looks like Miller.

If you haven’t seen Diggstown, it’s a fun popcorn film worth checking out. Yeah it has the production value of a TV-movie, and a few cheesy scenes, but the good far outweighs the bad.

Horse Shoe Football Stadium Concept

Horse Shoe Football Stadium by davesgeekyideas

Inspired by the beautiful new IG Field stadium in Winnipeg, I thought I’d put together a stadium design for my Calgary Stampeders. As you probably surmised from the title and image, this stadium features a distinct horse shoe roof.
