I can see it now, the "Capitals" (Hardball Capital) Suspect

What's wrong with the Wiz kids? They've been here long enough to where they are associated with FW. It's not like there is anything special about the Komet's, they've just been here forever.

I say we name them the FW Richards.. or FW Grahams.. something to honor that dipshit for giving us this whole mess. Plus if you call them the Richards we can call them dicks for short.

I like it but don't you think most people would associate that with a racist term? I mean we are dumb midwesterners.

I remember reading or hearing that some associate the name "wizards" as racist. KKK term.

Definitely. I realize it would never fly.

I say they should be renamed the "Funnels". Because FW is going to be funneling money in that sink hole for a long time

I agree with Dan on K105, we should keep the name The Wizards. Why change names just because a new stadium is being built, they are the WizKids .... leave it at that.

If they kept the name as Wizards, I would hope that with the new ballpark, someone would have thought to make it resemble, oh I don't know, a castle...rather than another bland ballpark with no chararcter.

Ok, that might have been funny if Conan was funny...

I like the guy, but he's not funny. Sad

Ah, I know what you mean, but I guess I was just more amused by the FW name-dropping. I'm easily amused like that. Razz

I can't believe he will be replacing Leno ... that is going to cause me to become a Letterman watcher.

Oh, come on. We just got mentioned on a major late night show and all that gets mentioned is how unfunny Conan is? I thought it was great to see the Fort get some exposure.

Dude, he didn't even say what state we're from. It was probably attributed to a city in Texas by most viewers outside the midwest.

I gotta disagree with you guys. I think Conan is pretty funny. I don't get to watch him much since he is on so late but I enjoy his show.

Conan is great. Much better than Letterman/Leno/Ferguson. MUCH better.

Fort Wayne was mentioned before on a TV show, fairly often too. That is how I became familiar with you guys.

I guess they have ruled out a "Fat and Dumb" category.
