Big Changes...

The Fort Wayne Wizards, to go along with their move to the new stadium, has decided to change their name....


They are now the Fort Wayne Tin Caps.
Yep, that's right. The Tin Caps.


Now don't go rolling your eyes now. It is no more lame than naming your team after the color of your socks...and minor league teams should have kind of lame names...


Besides, it's historical....It is a reference to Johnny Appleseed, who traveled around the northern Midwest planting apple trees, only taking with him what he could carry, wearing his cooking pot on his head...




Besides, the Fort Wayne Potheads would be a completely different mascot.

Of course, it only took a day before my kids were calling them the pot heads. :)

It would, however, be a lot LESS stupid a name if it weren't for the fact that they're making this change at the very same time they're moving away from Johnny Appleseed Park, where JA is buried.

*snicker*
