So anybody who thinks that a good nickname for a Gary, Indiana based sports team would be the Shooters, please raise your hand. Seriously, Andrew Haines and the rest of you team owners, you can put your hand down – you don’t count.
And don’t go defending it by telling me that it honors the local casinos, either. That’s almost as bad as it’s other connotation.
Wait, it’s not actually in Gary? It’s in Dyer, 10 miles away? Well that makes it soooo much better.
Oh yeah, and while we’re at it, Dyer – enjoy your half season of ABAish hockey. Good luck with Mr. Haines there. He’s never burned anybody.
Doesn’t anybody do research before investing in sports franchises anymore?
