Winnipeg's new NHL team unveiled


The end of the Phoenix Coyotes' season is nigh, and with that comes the announcement of Winnipeg's new NHL team. The accountants and lawyers have worked out all the details under the shroud of a secrecy agreement to prevent information from being leaked out, but it's tricky to keep everything under wraps. And so it is that I have come across some important information, via a friend of the Peanut who happens to be connected with the Chipman family.

Ever since rumours of the Coyotes coming back to Winnipeg started, there has been speculation about what the name might be. Will they be called the Jets again, or something else? If something else, what?

Well, I have the answer for you. And not only that, I have a prototype of their jersey. They will not be called the Jets, primarily for marketing reasons. Virtually everybody in the city has a Jets jersey in their closet at this point, so there will be a new name and new colours, forcing all true fans to buy new gear. The name will have a connection to the City of Winnipeg, it will invoke the pride of Manitobans everywhere, and will symbolize the best of what we have to offer the world.

Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you:


drumroll....









There is of course a back-up name, in case this one doesn't work out for some reason, though I can't understand how there could possibly be a problem. But just in case: welcome to the Falcons!

(yes, I'm recycling material. Whatcha gonna do about it.)

I'll be first in line. I have to admit I was skeptical about a new team name after hearing such garbage as polar bears or falcons bandied about, but this is indeed an inspired choice. Stand tall, Winnipeg Burton's fans! Our time is near!

The Burtons are Cumming!! Hmm.. I'm starting to rethink the name.

I love reading your blog because it has very interesting topics.

It has been known that Burton is a bit on the arrogant side. This would really send his ego into orbit. But it is original beyond my wildest dreams.
Another good thing could come out of this: Salisbury House restaurant at the MTS Centre.
