Omaha Royals to become "Storm Chasers"

Postby MVCfans » November 15th, 2010, 6:59 pm

I realize that AAA baseball teams often have quirky names, but Storm Chasers is just kind of.. well.. dumb.

Ladies and gentlemen, presenting your Omaha Storm Chasers.

Alan Stein, president of the Omaha Royals, unveiled the club's new name Monday night at the Embassy Suites Convention Center. The switch was made as Omaha's Triple-A baseball team makes the move to Werner Park in Sarpy County next spring.

Since 1969, the team has been named the Royals, the team's major-league affiliate, for all but three years, when it was named the Golden Spikes (1999-2001). ... rm-chasers

Government does not solve problems; it subsidizes them.

Correct me if I am wrong, but was this new name picked by a vote? I believe it was. When will people learn that even though it might have "won" in a voting contest, most peoples ideas are just stupid.

I predict it will be back to the "Royals" within a few years.
