  1. The El Paso Chihuahuas are good my to have a one night name change. They are going to use one of the names that was in the running when the Tucson Padres moved to El Paso. So on June 10 they will be the El Paso Desert Gators. Do you happen to know any other teams change their identity for one night? http://www.milb.com/news/article.jsp?ymd=20160603&content_id=181952490&fext=.jsp&vkey=pr_t4904
  2. According to The Boss, the Yankees had the best turn ahead the clock uniforms. So I have to say the shorts were worse.
  3. I know I'm biased on this one, but I thought that my old high school had a great unique mascot/logo. I went to Eastwood High School in El Paso, Texas and the mascot is Sarge the Trooper. What do you think?
  4. The El Paso AAA team is going to announce their team name later today. Www.elpasotriplea.com should have the logo.
  5. Sun Dogs may sound like a made up species of minor league mascot, but it's not. A sun dog is an actual astral phenomena that's befitting of a place that calls itself "Sun City" (hence the Sun Bowl). I was wondering why they'd move to El Paso when part of the reason they were moving from Tucson was because the Arizona baseball team was more popular; but then I found out UTEP doesn't have baseball... kind of surprising. The reason why they are moving to El Paso is because the city government agreed to build a stadium. The crazy thing is they demolished the children's science museum and the city hall. You can find the city hall demolition on YouTube if you care to see it. The ballpark construction has been rather controversial since it required the demolition and the costs have been raising quite quickly since this is a a fast construction deadline of less than one year. As far as UTEP not having a baseball team, this is due to Title 9 in the 80's. Since football takes up a lot of scholarships and you need an equal amount of female scholarships, UTEP had to drop the program.
  6. There is a sneak peak of the logo at www.elpasotriplea.com. Rumor is they are going to be the Sun Dogs.
  7. There is already a minor league system. It's called the NCAA.
  8. Yeah the Packers shareholders ring that's pictured above is massive!! I have people stopping and asking me all the time about mine. Even at Packer games people want to see it . Did you go for the real gold or the jeweler's metal? If you got the jeweler's metal does it look good?
  9. In 2011 my wife and I attended the World Series in Arlington and it was Bizarro World. For the first time in my life at an event, the men's restroom had a long line stretching out the door while there were no lines for the women's room.
  10. Just wait fifteen to twenty more years when stadiums built in the 1990's/early 2000's become too obsolete to remain competitive in the next modern era of sports have to be demolished.
  11. First time I looked at it I thought it looked like the yellow portion was torn up, but it looked cool once I focused on the mountains. The best part of the field is how they incorporated the shape of the state in the green portion of the field.
  12. I just hope we don't see colored ice any time soon. What does everyone think? http://extramustard.si.com/2013/07/17/the-nashville-predators-painted-their-ice-gold-its-a-good-look-for-them/?sct=hp_bf1_a5&eref=sihp
  13. New and improved Lambeau looks amazing. Way better than new and "improved" Solider Field. So classy looking. Almost like a Camden Yards, in that it looks like it was made that way 50 years ago and yet will still look great 50 years from now. My favorite part of this picture is all the new shareholders including my wife and I helped pay for the latest renovations.
  14. I had the pleasure of meeting my dad's childhood hero and my own. So I had Pete Rose sign a ball at a card show and my mom bought me a Nolan Ryan autograph for a birthday. When I met Nolan Ryan, my cousin and myself were in a private tour of the Ballpark In Arlington when Nolan walked into the locker room. I thanked him for the memories and asked if I could have a picture taken. I keep that picture of that up at work along with family pictures. Now that my son was born two weeks ago, I want to down the line get him the chance to see his hero and put up an autograph ball next to grandpa's and my hero.
  15. The GM of the El Paso AAA team said on a radio interview they wanted to go with a fresh start. The Diablos are on their last legs and the ownership group is looking for a buyer. So if anyone here wants to own their own baseball team, you can put in an offer.
