SP Rays


St. Petersburg City Council member Bill Foster has sent a written resolution asking the Tampa Bay Devil Rays to consider changing their team name so it includes the city where their stadium is located. He's frustrated about reading erroneous newspaper articles that place the team in Tampa instead of St. Petersburg. Pinellas County residents have shown enthusiastic support for the resolution, as they too feel slighted that most people associate the team with the city of Tampa and not St. Petersburg.

And lets change a variety of names. The Arlington Rangers, the Ft. Lauderdale Marlins. Lets not forget we can rename the football Giants to the NJ Giants, and in Hockey we can have the Raleigh Hurricanes.
