Arrested Development and Jackson Pollack jokes in one thread. Win all around.


Really? Good for Carl Weathers to maintain cultural currency, but I like to think his accomplishments in other TV shows and movies far outshine his cameo appearances on Arrested Development.

If they had a basketball team, would they be the Jackson Five?

I wish! Their IBL team is the...

I am hereby proposing to the world that the team change their name to the Jackson Action. The logo shall be of Carl Weathers with a machine gun-bat in one hand, and stew in the other.

Logo to come. Or not.


Only if the logo includes a shot of Craig T. Nelson driving the Halley.

Only if the mascot is Sharon Stone, only circa the time the movie was released. Not a cable classic like Bosworth's "Stone Cold", but that actually was a good film.


make it Sharon Stone circa Basic Instinct and you got a winner. ^_^

Back in '93, I was living in L.A. - in a big gated community right on the border of Beverly Hills and West Hollywood - and living directly across the street/path from me (we're talkin' 50 feet at best) was Sharon Stone. This was post-Basic Instinct, so she was pertty much at the peak of her popularity.

One day, I was walking downstairs in my apartment doing laundry, when I heard Sharon - with her blinds open, and the bathroom window wide open - taking a shower. I'm no freakin' Peeping Tom, but yeah, I paused to look.

So sue me (!).

:blink:

Circa 1993, I can't fault you for that.

In 2008 however, I'd wonder about you at least a little.

Something tells me the Jaxx won't be changing their name. I live twenty minutes from their home, Pringles Park, and this is the first time I've heard anything about a possible name change. Plus, the new owners are locals and probably wouldn't want to mess too much with the team's ID for several reasons, laziness being one of them.

Although, I would not be against a name change, preferably to the Jackson Generals. The city of Jackson was named after Gen. Andrew Jackson and used to have a Kentucky-Illinois-Tennessee ("Kitty") League team in the 1950's called the Generals. I also think they should keep the colours of green, silver, black, et cetera. (The only foreseeable obstacle to this that I can think of would be that the Jackson State Community College athletic teams are also nicknamed the Generals with similar colours.)

Also, right now a Diamond Jaxx/Jack is apparently a diamond miner. However, the original identity of the team suggested a playing card motif. I believe the name was chosen via fan contest. Surprise. I'll get all my logo info and such up soon.


Jackson Generals was the Jackson Mets' nickname in the early 1990s. It was an Astros affiliate at the time.

I would say Jackson Stonewalls, but that would create a whole bunch of controversy round these parts...

Sorry to revive this dead thread...but next year they will be the Jackson Generals:

Would have quite a bit of history behind it...if the original Generals weren't from Jackson, MISSISSIPPI.

We are obviously thinking of two very different Jackson Generals teams...the one on my mind is the franchise today known as the Corpus Christi Hooks.

Looking forward to seeing the official unveiling...

Still love the primary, do not like the cap logo as much. I'll post pics of the uniforms, once I find them, to illustrate why.

Since you said 'original', he has shown you that you are incorrect. Jackson, TN has a LONG history with the nickname Generals for its baseball team. One of the Kitty League's mainstay franchises was named this.

Way too plain for my liking, and I especially don't like the plain white cap with the home pinstripes. (Although, I love that they finally went back to pinstripes.)

And for your viewing pleasure, the entire gallery from Monday's game.
