You're Renaming the B-Mets What?
Tonight the B-Mets revealed the six finalists in their "Binghamton Name the Team Contest". It was reported that there were "thousands upon thousands" of entries, from which these finalists were picked:
- Binghamton Bullheads,
- Binghamton Gobblers,
- Binghamton Rocking Horses,
- Binghamton Rumble Ponies,
- Binghamton Stud Muffins, and
- Binghamton Timber Jockeys.
We can do better. (AND WE DID! VOTE HERE! )
As a (nearly) life-long resident, I am embarrassed. I remember going to the stadium as a young child... Attending games, playing on the field, watching fireworks after the night games, eating ice cream out of little plastic helmets (still a favorite). I truly CANNOT imagine, as a 5-year-old, saying how "super excited" I am to go watch the Binghamton Stud Muffins...! What?
We could end up being the small-town version of Boaty McBoatface. (Given, that was humorous, but I really don't think that we want that to be our reputation.)
Sign to tell new B-Mets owner John Hughes that this is unacceptable. Please either keep the B-Mets name, or pick a more respectable option.
