Fits in with the whole food cart craze.
Or, we could just be the Portland Foodies.
Cool, but I don't think a gun on the logo would work in our city. Especially to now. Great design though.
I had that same poster on my wall as a kid!!!!!
I like the Hops. I’d support that name.
I was kinda wondering the same. It seems like when expansion is brought up anywhere, the fan bases start tossing out alliteration names, almost exclusively. 4 of the 30 MLB teams currently have the same letter for both. Pirates, Marlins, Phillies and Cubs. And Cubs doesn't have the same sound.
In NBA, you have 5 out of 30, which includes NY, since it's the same sound, but not same letter.
In NFL, you have 3 teams, I believe, out of 32.
I don't care about hockey, so not looking them up. 12 out of 92.
New York Yankees.
I view alliteration as a tiebreaker. I think "Ospreys" is the best name suggested here, regardless of alliteration. Lumberjacks would be cool too.
And then we can call them the Ozzies!
I like this.
I also like Hops, whether it's Oregon Hops or Portland Hops.
But video poker is everywhere
Yankees dont count. Nor do Cubs. Miami barely does cause they were Florida originally.
Again, if it happens, so be it. I just hope it's not high on the list of importance
One of these things is not like the other....
No, not the “Doug” that doesn’t exist....
One is a storied franchise with many rings and many HOFers.
Don’t ever put my SF Giants in that heaping pile of shit again, ever. FAMS!!
You’re so much better than that. This might be your worst post. Ever.
Yeah! Like Ricky Henderson and Mark McGwire and Jose Canseco!
The Portland Not To Be Used Without The Written Consent of Major League Baseball
New York Yankees??
And the Cubs count if you're just talking about the first letter.
It's the phonics. Chicago and Cubs are different
New York Yankees would be more like the Port Land Loggers
Except New York is two words, while Portland is one continuous name.
Same concept though.
There is a city down here named Sugar Land.
Separate names with a comma.
