Draw a sports logo from memory: Detroit Tigers

Prince Fielder's butt is not actually the logo. - USA TODAY Sports

Drawing a sports logo from memory is harder than it sounds. See how well we did and try it for yourself.

Even if you don't like sports, there are many sports logos with which you may be familiar. But here's the thing: even if you DO like sports -- even if you instantly recognize a myriad of logos and create the semiotic link in your head to the team they represent on a daily basis -- they're insanely hard to recreate from memory alone.

This is our ongoing series where we attempt to recreate these logos using only a drawing implement and our own all-too-fallible human memories. Please enjoy our horrible attempt at the logo and accompanying anecdote, then give it a shot for yourself in the comments below. Have fun!

The Detroit Tigers may have one of the most iconic, simple and straightforward logos in all of Major League Baseball. It's just an Olde English "D," of course. Detroit celebrities from Kid Rock to Eminem (in other words, BOTH Detroit celebrities) have the logo as a tattoo. How hard could it be?!

So here we go. Drawin' this thing from memory.
