Definitely. I have seen that damn thing since I was 2 years old, but the thought never occurred to me until I saw that picture. There's no way in hell that would fly (pun intended) in the internet age.
I think, eventually, Brass will be the new name. People have caught on to it nationally and seem to like it a whole lot better than Pelicans. I like Pelicans, FWIW, but Brass is just as good locally and would work nationally. Benson needs to read the tea leaves and come out and say "Pelicans" was just a rumor and they haven't made up their mind. Then name them Brass
