The Hartford What Nows?

Major League Baseball’s Colorado Rockies will have a new AA affiliate in Hartford next year*.  The Hartford club just unveiled its new name and logo, and both confirm that Connecticut is a very strange place.



Yes, that’s a goat.  Its not just any farm goat or barn goat or wild goat either.  Nope, the Hartford club’s mascot is specifically a Yard Goat.  Seriously, Connecticut, what the fuck is this?  Your drivers are dangerous and your liquor laws are downright nonsensical, but this is some bizarre shit.  Are Yard Goats a species of fauna endemic to Hartford?  Or maybe I’ve missed something and the team is taking its name from a new street gang?

Yard Goats.  Whatever, Connecticut…just stay off our roads.


*Technically, the team is not new.  The New Britain Rock Cats (another head-scratcher of a name) are relocating and rebranding.
