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:

  1. Binghamton Bullheads,
  2. Binghamton Gobblers,
  3. Binghamton Rocking Horses,
  4. Binghamton Rumble Ponies,
  5. Binghamton Stud Muffins, and
  6. 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.
