Bloomington UIF Unveiling...

Recommended Posts

??Extreme? is a great name not only for an automobile dealership, but also for a football team.

To quote the late Dr. McCoy in "Star Trek," "In a pig's eye."

is Dan O'Brien part of the O'Brien Automotive Team, with the screaming mitsubishi ads in the Champaign area?

If so I hope the team does awful.

Absolutely Horrible - and you thought Halloween and all the horror was over -

That's just plain 'crap' (sorry Chris for the harsh language)

:cursing:

The Bloomington Extreme will have tryouts for local talent in December and a training camp in March before the season begins mid-March.

Because, let's face it, no one outside of Bloomington, and very few inside it, I bet, cares.

It is a short step above the CBA's infamous Capital Region Pontiacs. I am not making this up. It was a team sponsored by the Albany area's Pontiac dealers.

It might come in a tie with the CISL's Detroit Neon, which was obviously named after the Dodge automobile, since the wordmark is the same.

I have a buddy that played for the Neon... err.. neon. That is EXACTLY what they did. It was a total marketing campaign. The first year of the neon was the first year of the neon soccer team. Then.. in another stroke of genious, they became the Detroit Safari.

Named after.. yep... the "Safari" vehicle.

I knew about the Safari, but I don't know if the wordmark also matched on that logo. Here it is in any case.

As a longtime lurker there is no better time than have my first post than now.I sent 4 nickname suggestions to the team's website when they had a naming contest before they decided to go with the dealership's name.The arena group will get what it deserves when the team folds/relocates in a year or two any way.Now I'll just have to hope our UHL team gets a better name.
