Mariners Of Maine

This is just going to be a quick addition since I'm off to umpire again tonight. Above is the logo for the newest ECHL team in Portland, Maine. They are the Mariners of Maine. Yes, like the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim and the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, we have another "of" name. Personally, that just seems so minor-league, but that's my opinion.

The ECHL affiliate of the New York Rangers will begin play this fall, so it's time to ask the obvious question regarding any new team: do you like the name and logo?

My take? The logo is fine. The name is awful. Maine Mariners? Ok, no real problem despite it being Seattle's baseball team's name. But this "Mariners of Maine" stuff is downright terrible.

Until next time, keep your sticks on the ice!
