When I think of a yard goat..I think of a goat tied to a tree with a rope! It is going to be one ugly mascot! Not buying tshirts for my boys!
Who chose that name? Whoever it was is probably stupid or drunk!
It should have been the Hartford Colts not even a finalist. WHO CHOSE THESE!
This is the worst name in history. When I hear this name I don't think of a baseball team, I think of a goat singing a terrible taylor swift song. How embarrassing really.
I love the name!!! It's fun, it will certainly get the "kids" involved - the marketing possibilities are endless! Can't believe how many people seem to be against this name. The first day I heard the names listed on the radio, I knew Yard Goats had it! I hope they have an amazing first season...and beat all their competition really baaaad! I'm embarrassed by so many things about CT - this isn't one!
I was so disappointed when I heard they chose Yard Goats. I did not really like any of the choices, but I think this is very embarrassing for the state of Connecticut.
what the hell is a yard goat. do they expect people to actually go watch them with a name like that
I guess they don't plan on selling merchandise
I thought that this was a joke at first. All options were terrible.
What an embarassment. What an idiotic name to chose.
How about the Hartford taxaholics? Much more honest
If you grew up in Hartford, river hogs at least has some connecton. The Park river, where many of us played, was called The Hog!
