CasperVia Mudville.

Colorado’s Rookie League team in Casper, Wyoming, has changed its name.

The Casper Rockies are now the Casper Ghosts.

If you’re worried that Casper, who is a friendly ghost, isn’t tough enough to instill fear in opponents, don’t. The team has placed menacing looking ghosts on its caps. And better yet, the ghost emblems glow in the dark. Truly awesome.

I’m not sure how I feel about the Casper name change. But I suppose there are some towns that just demand certain names (see: Macon Whoopee). The ghosts were, I suspect, inevitable. Are the Butte (Idaho) Pirates next?

One Response to “Casper minor league team makes predictable name change.”

  1. Since the Tampa Bay Devil Rays officially shortened their name to the Rays, this might be a replacement for the paranoid religious wackos to focus on instead. I’m sure that there will be some hootin and hollerin about the ungodliness of a team named the “Ghosts.”
