We're going to have change our forum slogan very soon. Any suggestions?
The Fierce Fish fights on.
The Ya-Ya Cyberhood
Ode to the Rolling Stones, Mick and Keith
Get your Ya-Yas out!
LoveWNT had this great suggestion: "Stun 'em, kill 'em, chew 'em!" Which, of course, is what a real ray (not Real Ray) does out in the ocean.
I still like that suggestion. But whatever happened to LoveWNT, anyhow?
Awesome suggestion! I remember that from awhile back when we decided to go with The Bald and The Beautiful. I'm not sure where LoveWNT went, but I'm sure she'd be happy to see her suggestion under our name.
FearM9 LOVES Vench!!!
There's the winner!! I'm sure Corky would have NO problem with that. He should be used to it by now.
Tim, go ahead and submit that one when you get a minute or two.
LoveWNT was a he. Former military officer, huge USWNT fan. I had the pleasure of meeting him at the CyberRays' opener last year. But he hasn't been on these boards in over a year. Given that he didn't look the perfect picture of health when I met him, I'm fearing the worst.
No. I have a personal issue with the group with the "Ya-Ya Cyberhood" sign at the games and their lack of respect for other people's signs and stuff. They're kinda rude, actually. It would not make me happy to adopt that as the forum slogan.
tcmahoney--LoveWNT's slogan is evil. I like it. I'm sorry to hear you think he might not be OK.
We still might be able to come up with something better. I'll make some feeble attempt to be creative later today!
How about "Inaugural Champions of WUSA" or "2001 WUSA Champions"? We're still the most successful team in the long, storied history of the league -- after all our Cup and fifth-place finish beats out the current holders' Cup and last-place finish -- so we might as well keep a classy forum slogan.
Not bad, Druid Squirrel.
OK, people, you've got until 5 p.m. Monday evening (PDT) to come up with some more suggestions so we can do a quick poll.
No one can take away the fact that the Rays are the 2001 WUSA Champions or the Inagural Champions. DS came up with a good idea.
However, the trophy now resides in Cary, NC so the team and their fans get to do what they like with the Cup. I'll let Andy drink from the trophy and gloat all he wants. Congrats to them.
The Rays are champions in the hearts and minds of their fans, though they came up short this year.
I can't wait to have the Rays take back the trophy next year. We will have to give credit this year to the Blue Lioness for going from Worst to First.
I thought about that, too but then it seems like we are holding onto the past a bit. Our team shouldn't only be known for that.
I still like LoveWNT's idea. I feel like an idiot, I could have sworn that was a woman but maybe there was somebody around at one time with a screen name similar to that. I hope he is ok.
OK. No one has come up with any other realistic suggestions other than "Stun 'em, kill 'em, chew 'em!"
So, shall we go with that?
As if our mascot wasn't freaky enough already...now we're going to promote that it kills people and eats them too. I can see my sister freaking out even further.
j/k I don't really care if she freaks out. I can't think of anything else anyway.
But I can tell you what her suggestiong would be: Smile, you've got Frenchie!
"Brandi and the Brazilians"
(Hey, Dave Barry would like it - it sounds like a good name for a rock group! )
Your sister is a very smart woman.
I am at a complete creative loss for anything remotely appropriate for a forum slogan. I mean, something along the lines of "We still love our team even though our head coach is an idiot" probably isn't the tag-line we want. Hmmm...
I wish the oficial CyberRays song had some more meaningful lyrics than "la la la", because then we could hijack some of them. It's probably not terribly inspiring to have "San Jose CyberRays: LA LA LA!" as your forum title. It would make me giggle every time I saw it, however. Yes, I'm easily amused.
They can play my backyard BBQ any day!
She thinks so. She says, "I've been waiting for people to say that."
She's 14, btw, but yeah, she's a pretty bright kid. Ever modest too.
Um...All I can think of is "Samba time in San Jose." Sorry, creativity is not my strong suit.
Wait, I don't get it: we don't want to be remember as the 2001 WUSA champs, but we do want to be remembered for killing and eating people? Well, whatever floats your boat. I don't object.
That's more like it. Or how about, "HERE fishies ... NICE fishies ... OUCH!!!"
It's been changed to "Stun them...".
The Carolina Courage also revised theirs adding "WUSA Champion" to "Blue Lions".
They can do what they like with the Cup. I'm waiting for a chance for the Rays to reclaim the championship.
Oh please no! Sorry -- freaking out-- Just thinking about the ugly clam killing and chewing makes me very upset.
I wonder in Shock turns evil if you feed it after midnight- kind of like a gremlin. Wait... Shock's already evil. Never mind
I for one smile when I think about Frenchie! Change to with that one!
This one is too violent
Did we ever actually do a poll? I think it was just changed to "Stun 'em"... Just from skimming back through the thread we had about as many "no" posts about that one as we did in favor once it was all said and done. Not that we exactly got on the ball with new ideas right away, but I think now that the season is over people just aren't checking back in as regularly. Given that some people are obviously genuinely disturbed by the forum tagline, perhaps a vote after all might be a good idea?
