I know this isn't celtics related besides the playoff tickets chance and possibility of the team being affiliated with the celtics so I'm sorry if this doesnt belong here. I'm just curious as to what people think about the team names they've narrowed it down to, and what people have voted for. I've heard a lot of people saying they are lame and I kind of agree. I wonder what you celtics fans from places outside of Maine think about the choices. I'm psyched about this team so please give your reactions to these names. These are the ones you can vote on at their site:
Maine Beacons- The Beacons is a tribute to the more than 60 lighthouses in Maine that guide ships safely to shore, like our coaches will guide our team to victory.
Maine Crushers- The Crushers celebrates the lobster industry in Maine. A lobster uses the crusher claw to destroy their prey, much like our team intends to crush our opponents.
Maine Claws- The Claws name celebrates the lobster industry in Maine. Maine is the largest producer of lobsters in the United States.
Maine Destroyers- The Destroyers name honors the 400 years of shipbuilding in Maine. It is a vibrant part of Maine’s culture and history, and also represents our teams desire to destroy the competition.
Maine Red Claws- The Red Claws name celebrates the lobster industry in Maine. Maine is the largest producer of lobsters in the United States. The “Red” is in tribute to Boston Celtics Legend Arnold "Red" Auerbach.
Maine Swarm- The Swarm represents the state insect of Maine which is the Honey Bee. Bees swarm together as a group to reach a goal, much like our players working together to win games and get the call-up to the NBA.
Maine Traps- The Traps honors the tradition of lobstering in Maine and the hard working lobstermen. Our team will work hard to trap our opponent and get the win every night.
P.S. Tough loss tonight. It's definitely not much fun watching them lose during the "healing and resting" stage of the season. Can't wait to see the healthy Celtics playing playoff basketball again.
