Yes, that's right, their big, juicy lead-in photo is...A big blank space. A square of nothingness. Kind of symbolic of everything the PDN does, eh?
Meanwhile, like many of you, I continue to be baffled by the naming of the "Port Angeles Lefties." It seems a wildly obvious mismatch for the town. I mean, can you really see any of the right-wing realtors (like Doughy Dan Gase or Dinky Dick Pilling) signing up to sponsor a team called the "Lefties"? I think not!
No, they want something less, you know, lefty, and probably something more manly, more attuned with the (supposedly) rugged, life-on-the-frontier nature of Port Angeles. Something like the "Port Angeles Bulldozers." Now, that's got some oomph! Or maybe the "Port Angeles Sand Pounders"? What about the "Port Angeles Opiates"? Personally, I still like the "Port Angeles Grant Grabbers," but again, that might not capture the spirit of rugged individualism that sponsors would be attracted to.
In any case, given the misstep in naming, and the cultural mismatch it represents, I'm going to predict one of two things: Either a team that lasts for one season, then phfft, or, there will be a renaming and rebranding.
Say...Rebranding...Why, it's so obvious! The "Port Angeles (Baby) Branders"! Now there's a name with some sizzle!
