Rainiers come in 6 packs ……. that's the starting lineup
The Seattle Experience
Was watching a rerun of Frasier the other day and saw this gem...
Scene Three - Radio Station.
Bulldog is still doing his show on air.
Bulldog: The "Salmon" that's what you want to name our expansion
hockey team, "The Seattle Salmon"?! Why don't you take
your two IQ points, rub them together, see if you can't
start a fire, beat it! [presses another button] Hey, you're
in the doghouse!
Caller: [v.o.] Hey, am I on?
Bulldog: Yes, take as long as you want! [presses another button] Next.
Seattle Pilots? But I suppose the Brewers own the rights to that.
Sea Lions, Totems, Emeralds are decent names. A name like Storm or Sockeye I wouldn't be a fan of though.
Kraken... I dunno. It's not the worst name. But it feels like the name of an arena football team.
Metropolitan would be cool for a throwback but, not sold on it completely.
I love that show and I remember that episode, I also lived in Seattle and it remains one of my fav places to live, Salmon is still a stupid name though and Bulldog Briscoe is not wrong.
Kraken would be an awful name.
Seattle Stolen Totems
I hope they use the actual plural of Sockeye, not one with an unnecessary 'S' added to the end of it
Seattle Sea Turtles
many moons ago i was stationed on the lincoln in everett... i'd love a Seattle Attack or some such with a carrier or missle sub bursting from the crest.
agree you want something badass.. something kids see and think, wow that's cool. sockeye doesn't exactly resonate with the youth..
I'm still favoring Emerald City Rain.... But they'll never not name them Seattle.
I honestly think kraken is the way to go
The difference is pretty much 1 second overall....
If they choose something other than the Kraken, they've failed.
When are they announcing it?
Seattle Quatch... short for sasquatch.
Emeralds sounds like a WNBA team.
why the f*** would they name the team Kraken after Scandinavian folklore or cryptocurrency exchange?
god help them if they name the team Kraken, if that is the case they should just fold
Yeah “Kraken” is terrible.
Seattle Frasier's and Kelsey Grammar can be the mascot and David Hyde Pierce can sing the national anthem before the games.
I'm telling you, Seattle Sasquatch has so much possibility.
I’ve always thought Seattle Dudes would be a sweet name.
No logo cuz they missed the deadline.
By the way, what a huge failure it was to name Vegas the Golden Knights. Pretty much no one ever calls them that or "the Knights", everyone just says Vegas. Every other team has a 50/50 split between the city and the team name. Please do it right this time.
Separate names with a comma.
