the Winnipeg Jets or...

Since we are once again an NHL city, there has been much debate about what the 'new' team should be called.

A letter to the editor in today's Free Press had be giggling. I wonder if you will enjoy it as much as I?
"The name "Threshers" has been suggested for our new NHL team. What a great idea! A fine prairie name for a fine prairie province.

Maybe we could get Atlanta's old jerseys; think of the money we'd save, having to change only one letter. We Winnipeggers are known for our thrift.

Of course, if we are going to redo the jersey artwork, what could be more intimidating than having a big combine on our player's chests? Or perhaps artwork of a grizzled farmer would strike fear into their opponents. Enthusiastic fans could throw hay onto the ice. The possibility are endless!
