Sure, I promoted the Brass, and I think it would have been great. But, from the first day the name was suggested, I really didn't have a problem with Pelicans. Now, after watching the video, looking at the various logos, giving it some thought and even discussing it with my wife (she's got taste and knows marketing a bit), I am fully committed.
It's representative of the region. It's kind of a cool looking bird. IT'S OURS!. Meh, we may quibble about the various logos and the color scheme, but Pelicans is going to work fine. Just don't let the red overwhelm the blue and gold.
I'm not a "gear" guy (other than caps and maybe a t-shirt or two), but frick it. I may have to buy something more serious to wear to games if I find some good designs (no jerseys because I don't want to intimidate people with the "gun show" . . . know what I mean?).
Seriously, though, the name is unique and it's actually a positive sign that it's gotten mixed reaction. frick the haters.
ETA: I'm sure you're all happy I took the time to type that post.
