Yesterday the Cyclones sent an email blast alerting people that they were renaming the team "Baracklyn Cyclones" on June 23rd.
According to their website - "Can a minor league team change the name of baseball's most legendary borough? YES WE CAN!"
OK, so it's a 1-day promotion - but come on, that has got to be the worst play on the name Brooklyn. Hell, as much as I hate it, Crooklyn was even better.
Minor league teams come up with great promotions all the time (see St. Paul Siants, Hudson Valley Renegades). But this just sounds so bad.
Of course there will be special jerseys that the players will wear that day (and you can bet that the Wilpons will sell those jerseys in the Baracklyn Team Store).
