(Re)Name Your New SF Hockey Team

October 5, 2011

The esteemed @peterhartlaub over at SFGate was kind enough to reference my post on the “SF Bulls” hockey naming controversy. He quickly came up with seven awesome names that will avoid this unfortunate fate:

This of course immediately sparked new cheers by my new Twitter friends:

(I think we all see where this is headed.)

Anyway, I have created a poll to get a feel for which of these alternate names shall replace the tragedy of the San Francisco Bulls.  Please read Peter’s finely crafted article to understand the nuances of each choice before voting, along with my original post. And of course, gazing upon the glory of the San Francisco Sutros:

Ahhhh. Oh yeah, the poll.  In the spirit of Ranked Choice Voting, you can pick up to three names (though you can’t actually rank them, sorry…) And of course a write-in option.

And a note to Pat Curcio – please take all this as constructive criticism.  We really want hockey to work here.

Oh, Free Marketing Idea:

Have REALLY good food and beer during games at the Cow Palace.  Seriously.  While renaming the team the San Francisco Food Trucks is admittedly a stretch, you should seriously consider doing a weekly Off The Grid food truck extravaganza and get local/regional brewers like Anchor, Speakeasy, Trumer and Almanac to be partners.

    I like the Food Trucks but I’m afraid Portland might have a stronger claim to that name. (Are these fighting words?)

    we once had an MISL (indoor soccer) team called the Fog, and we currently have a rugby team by that name. the ruggers play at treasure island and count mark bingham as one of their former players.
