    My old joint is doing this contest and I'm not voting - not real sure what else was submitted if these were the five best! Just my opinion of course.


    Richmond Rock Hoppers
    Richmond Rhinos
    Richmond Flatheads
    Richmond Flying Squirrels
    Richmond Hambones

    My son just said, "I want to support this team. I will not wear a single piece of clothing with any of those names on there."
    Hey, I won't either - just because I only wear the Curly W.

    They can't go with a name that ties in with the city or area, much like the Bowling Green Hot Rods did last year?

    From a something-I'd-actually-wear-to-support aspect, I'm for the Flying Squirrels.

    From the could-make-for-fun-headlines aspect, I vote for the Rock Hoppers or Flatheads.

    Rhinos and Flying Squirrels are best for marketability/kitschy items.

    And what sort of person/people would suggest "hambones" for a mascot/team name? Uhm, no.
