Again, what are they thinking?

11 Feb


Do they want this franchise to fail before it ever gets off the ground? The Richmond Flying Squirrels today announced their new mascot.

A Flying Squirrel named “Nutzy.”

Are. You. Kidding. Me?

Supposedly it was picked from a contest of over 3,600 entries.

Every second-grade boy in the Metro Richmond area knows the double entendre of that name. And the management of the Flying Squirrels knows it as well.

Wasn’t “Flying Squirrels” embarrassing enough?

Still, I understand that on opening night the first 5,000 fans get a free souvenir protective cup.

    Minor league baseball is not a sport. It is a carnival, intended to entice parents to buy a wide array of trinkets and junk food for their little piglets.

    The local paper and television should not even include reports of this sham enterprise on the sports sections. If any mention is made at all, it should be right along with other circus events or carnivals that may come to town, hoping to fleece the locals out of what little hard-earned money that they have left.
