Oh, the ex-Manatees

The Brevard County Manatees, the Class A-Advanced farm club of the Milwaukee Brewers, will move out of Brevard County next spring, into Kissimmee’s Osceola County Stadium. So “Brevard” has got to go. The new team will simply be designated “Florida” — but Florida what? Here are the six finalists:

  • Florida Dragonflies
  • Florida Fire Frogs
  • Florida Mud Kickers
  • Florida Rodeo Clowns
  • Florida Sorcerers
  • Florida Toucans

Yes, they do allegedly have fire frogs.

The winner will be announced later this month.

    I’m sorry but all those are terrible names. At least “manatees” has an animal that many people recognize and that most people who recognize it LIKE.

    “Mud Kickers,” I predict, would very quickly morph to “S*** kickers.”

    I’ve been to Florida. It should be “Rednecks”.

    How about “Florida Men,” memorializing every bizarre story to come out of that state?
