The El Paso Chihuahuas ( AAA Baseball )

The San Diego Padres have a new AAA affiliate based in El Paso, and it has finally chosen a team name: The El Paso Chihuahuas. Awful.

Minor league baseball teams get the most creative freedom with their names—the Lehigh Valley IronPigs, Lansing Lugnuts, and Montgomery Biscuits, to name a few great ones—so this decision is bullshit, even more so when you hear the other finalists.

The smallest of the world's dog breeds was chosen over four other finalists in a "Name The Team" contest that garnered over 5,000 submissions, triumphing over Aardvarks, Buckaroos, Desert Gators and Sun Dogs.

Alright, hold it right there. All of those options are better than the Chihuahuas. "Buckaroos" is the weakest out of that group, and it's still better than the Chihuahuas. Two-word team names are minor league baseball's bread and butter, and while the Desert Gators and Sun Dogs sound like two animals made up by a third-grader who regularly wears monster truck t-shirts, they are still much better options than the Chihuahuas. The mystique and unknown potential danger of a Desert Gator or Sun Dog is significantly more intimidating than a name dedicated to one of the most annoying types of dogs.

Your kidding. It's got to be a joke. Chihuahuas? Ticket sales just plummeted and it hasn't even started yet. I guess we should be grateful they didn't choose the Frito bandito or the speedy Gonzales'.

Did you really expect anything else from this half baked nitwit town that wants to be a big city? This whole baseball and stadium has nothing but been dog eat dog from day one. So I guess a Chihuahua dog fits in with the rest of the BS. I just hope they bring a winner to this sorry losing place called El Paso. I kind of had a funny feeling based on past track records around here this was going to happen.

Get a new attitude El Paso!!! You should take pride in your city. The only thing wrong with El Paso is the negative nasty attitudes that you all show. Change that and you will see a positive winning city. Try being positive for once.

Anyway a Chihuahua is more lovable and cute than any of the other mascots.

That's just the way they roll around El Paso. And they have never had a winner in sports around here (except 1966) they never will with all the nay sayers and never will if it continues. These people are all a bunch of BAND WAGON JUMPERS. Few and very few when UTEP is winning its all RAH RAH. Went their not they just bitch and belly ache. Hey at least a team with a winning record last baseball season is coming to El Paso from Tucson. So what difference does it make if they are called the POOP HEADS. They should all be happy some new and interesting with a brand spanking new stadium is coming. Ever wonder why there are no visitors or business want to come to El Paso perfect example of ungrateful people.

I predict that the team will go defunct in 3-5 years and el pisso will be left with a wide azz gaping eyesoar in downtown el pisso. Perhaps then Attorney Jim Scherr can then move in and build another hotel in the money pit that will remain after the chihuahua bitches leave el chuco.

This name is irresponsible and might promote overbreeding of chihuhuahs like when 101 Dalmations came out so many unwanted dalmation puppies had to be euthanzed.
