[deleted file]Recent developments are pointing towards Seattle probably getting a new basketball team and possibly a new hockey team. But one thing bothered me: there is a requirement in the proposal that the new NBA team HAS to be named the (Super)Sonics.
Don't get me wrong, I understand the local nostalgia, and I'm OK with the Sonics as a team name, but thats the thing: I'm just OK with it. I admit, while growing up, I thought the SuperSonics was kind of, well, a dumb team name. They got the name from a new Boeing jet at the time: no way! Seattle and a Boeing reference. The originality overwhelms me. If they want to go that lazy route, they might as well call us the Venti Frappaccinos. Not to mention that every time I heard the "Sonics" I thought of Sonic the Hedgehog. Now, I don't need an excessively badass name, but i need something a little more badass than "makes me think of a childrens cartoon."
The local minor league hockey team is the Thunderbirds, with a totem pole style eagle on the jersey. I could definitely do with a different name than the Thunderbirds, and totem style art is OK. Again, JUST OK, and I feel like we could do better than that. AND the Seahawks current logo is a redo of their previous TOTEM STYLE EAGLE. How many f#cking airplanes, birds and totem poles do we need in this city?!?!?! GIVE US SOMETHING NEW!!!
I feel like with the power of social media, the PEOPLE can come up with many way better suggestions for new team names.
So LLers, please comment or message me your Seattle basketball and hockey team name ideas! If I get some good suggestions I will put the best ones in a poll soon. If you like, you can also include why you think it would be a good name and what colors you imagine the team would wear. I am also open to sarcastic, joke, facetious, degrading, offensive, ETC. ideas, so don't hold back. Thank you.
