could you not just look in a dictionary or google the word? What a waste of time to be asking people on a sports logo board.

well that wouldn't have worked since he spelled it "tertiray"...I assumed it was a sort of ray. Tampa Bay Tertirays next year, anyone? :)

Upon further research, (i.e. Google), terti in itself is a latin prefix for third, so perhaps the tertirays are going to be the new Tampa team, and there will be three rays on the jerseys. That wouldn't look cluttered.

Either that, or that they're renewing their push to finally achieve that third-place finish in the AL East that has always seemed to elude them.
