What would've been a better name?

Anyway, on behalf of Hindus, I'm offended at this selection of a mascot.

I don't know. The Tycoons? The Hilltoppers? The Lobbyists? The Starving Musicians?

Its a not so subtle play at a specific demographic. Which, with Austin's burgeoning hispanic population, is probably smart. I just can't help but think about Bull Durham when I see the logo.

Newsreports said the franchise will also try to link themselves to Austin's live music scene since they are playing just a couple of blocks from 6th street - I assume that means with promotions, pregame/postgame concerts, etc. A team rep was on sportstalk radio this afternoon trying to sell them as a cheap sports entertainment option in comparison to UT athletics. He says they'll sell 2000 season tickets - I'll believe it when I see it.

The TOROS will be one of the many NBDL teams to feel the long hard stroke of Pavel Podskolsine and the Fort Worth Flyers.

How about the TownLakers? Or the Barton Creekers? Or the Greenbelters? Or the Longer Horns?

Or the Enchanted Rockers? Or the Sixth Street Express? Or the Austin Boom? Or the Chippers?

Or the Slackers? Or the Caffeine-Jock-with-an-MA-in-Philosophy-and-bitter-attitude-to-prove-it-ers?
