Bidding the Expos Adieu

Apparently, I’ve been living under a rock for the last three weeks. My beloved Vermont Expos are officially no more. Meet our new short-season single-A team:

Meet the Vermont LakeMonsters. Yet another team with an unnecessary capital letter in the middle of its name. Another quirky team name that sounds strangly familiar: like the Lowell Lock Monsters, the Victoria Salmon Kings, the Charleston RiverDogs, and the Lakewood BlueClaws. Blah.

While the LakeMonsters definitely ranks near the bottom, I do have a favorite minor league sports franchise team name (aside from the now-defunct Macon Whoopee of the ECHL). There’s a team in the QMJHL (or the LHJMQ, depending on what language you speak) called the Lewiston MAINEiacs. Here’s their logo for your enjoyment:
