Not weird at all for the area and the steel that built it.

Sounds like the name of a rough gay bar.

Our arena football team is called the SteelDogs, which makes even less sense (At least "pig iron" is a real thing).

But Philly? Not Pittsburgh?

Your SteelDogs suck.

/Go Vipers!

With the way Bethlehem Steel screwed over their retirees, the team should be called the "Welfare Vagrants" or "The I stopped getting my pension check and now live in a box under the Iron Pigs stadiumers"

I thought Philly's triple-A team was called "the Phillies."

I don't know, I thought they were fine with Flyers.

/I know, not baseball

dletter: I AM IRONPIG!

I was just coming here to post that. But I lost that race.

Just describing his date?

Yeah, TB, I hate Dletter, too. Sabbath was the 1st thing I thought of when I saw the name.

Philly's double-A team is the Reading Phillies. The Triple-A team is moving from Ottawa to Allentown.

the AAA was in scranton-wilkes barre, as the red barons. ottawa starts this year as the fill-in until the lehigh valley locale is ready.

being a phils fan and FROM the lehigh valley, i was hoping for a cool team name and logo, so i could sport the hat or jersey.

looks like that just went down the drain.

still...go Phils!

Ok, random question for anyone who knows anything about AAA baseball...

If SWB is shutting down, who is physically going to be the 30th AAA team now??
2006-11-13 05:35:45 PM  
Nevermind, just figured it out... SWB is gonna host the Yankees AAA team, Columbus gets the Nationals AAA team...

That's a unique way of calling your team the RoboCops without having to pay for the copyright.
2006-11-13 06:19:47 PM  
i hope every game starts with a black sabbath song.
2006-11-13 11:17:46 PM  

The Red Barons are going to be the AAA team for the Yankees starting next year
