Royals AAA Club Changes Name--Most of Omaha Hates It
The Omaha Royals are no more. They are now the Storm Chasers. The majority of the comments to this linked article hate it. Check it out, including the mascots and unis, and the video. What do you think?
(I like the naming of minor league affiliates after the parent clubs, but that's just me. With new names and such, there can be more merchandising--unfortunately an important part of any sports team now.)
I am a New Yorker by birth, and have been a life long Giants, Jets and Mets fan. (I never could really get into rooting for the Yankees.) I moved to Vermont for my high school years. I lived in the Philadelphia area for several years. Then I returned to Vermont to live. Now, I have been in Kansas City for twenty years. I am a Royals and Chiefs fan. I'm a graduate of the University of Vermont. My tax dollars go to MU, but I am an all around fan of our area Big 12 colleges. I love living in a town with a vibrant sports scene, where sports news gets more comments than any other news. I am passionate but thoughtful. I don't call names. However, if someone needs a butt kicking, I'll give it. So, that's where I'm coming from.
