Name Game

The St. Petersburg Times reported this morning that the Tampa Bay Devil Rays have informed MLB they are considering a name change. The Times even had their own conceptual logo for a new team name (the Tarpons) which left me feeling eel at the notion that Rays could possibly become another fish team as well as the fact those that keep stirring up the Tarpons name change don't know how the detractors (opponents) would name-call the franchise the Tampons.

Marc Topkin's blog, the Heater, has a thread devoted to user-submitted names.

I point out in that post, as I have pointed out on this very blog (and elsewhere) what I think the name could and should be.
