    Now THAT'S the perfect mascot for the Tampa Bay Tourists. Technically I could be considered a tourist too, since I'm not a native, but one of the many people coming here and driving up the real estate prices. I don't wear bad shirts and knee high socks though.

    Hey, I'd be all for it. Far as I'm concerned they could call the team the Tampa Bay Bundys, but I just can't get my head around the culture that praises theft and freaks about fish.

    Anyway, check out this cute, little tasmanian angel:

    I have mixed feelings on this one. On the one hand, it's discouraging that an abundance of people in this market in the year 2006 are so small-minded to be put off by the word "Devil." On the other hand, I'm a big "perception is reality" guy.

    The target audience, no matter how irrational, doesn't like the word "Devil." Your brand isn't very strong to begin with. Might as well change it.

    So glad I don't live in the St. Pete area.
    How, then, are those people of the future—who are taking steroids every day—going to look back on baseball players who used steroids? They're going to look back on them as pioneers. They're going to look back at it and say "So what?" - Bill James, Cooperstown and the 'Roids

    Tampa Bay Manatees or Sea Cows.

    The fighting cows.

    Kinda has a South Park ring to it.

    Well, they play in St. Petersburg, so why not call them the "Leningrad Cowboys"?

    Burn down the disco. Hang the blessed DJ. Because the music that he constantly plays, it says nothing to me about my life.

    The people of Trampa/St. Pete telephoned to say they didn't get your joke.
