So you all know I love baseball. One of the most funnest things about baseball is the minor leagues. I mean, the names alone: the Albuquerque Isotopes, the Hickory Crawdads, the Montgomery Biscuits.... how do you not love that?
I recently discovered that the A-ball club in Lowell, Massachusetts is called the Lowell Spinners! A nod to the mill-town history of Lowell. One of their mascots is even named Millie! (Why she's an alligator, I have no idea.)
This is their logo:
Baseball and yarn! What could be better?
I was thisclose to buying a T-shirt online because it's so damn cute. Then I saw it.....
Yeah. The Spinners are a Red Sox club. They call themselves .... oh, the pain... "Thread Sox Nation".
And one of their big causes is the Yankee Elimination Project.
So that's one cute T-shirt I won't be buying. Sniff.
