A green Red Claw?

.

Ten years ago Maine debuted its first NBA G league basketball team.

.

.

And naturally its mascot was a lobster. The lobster art has morphed over the years…

.

.

But it has remained a red cooked lobster. Hence the name… ‘Red Claws’.

Mainers. We’re so clever, it hurts.

.

.

Okay, so sometimes the mascot looks more like a demonic ant….

.

.

A demonic ant on steroids.

.

.

But ya gotta admit, the dude’s got game.

Everything was going well, and in the ten years since it’s inception… the team has won three division titles. But in 2019?

.

.

The Boston Celtics bought our team. And this year?

.

.

They not only renamed our team the Maine Celtics….

.

.

They turned our red lobster green!

The Green Claws?

That’s just wrong. In so many ways.

  1. Oh well, at least they stayed the Lobsters. We had (still have) a minor league baseball team named the El Paso Diablos, they were affiliated with the Milwaukee Brewers. Sounded good, and for almost three decades it stayed that way.

    Then, they were bought out by the San Diego Padres, and a name change came along. Don’t ask me why, the Diablos seemed to be a good fit for this city that has up to 115 degree heat in the summer.
    So their name now? I shudder to even mention it, the……….Chihuahuas….*insert face palm here*
