THIS IS THE DAWNING OF THE AGE OF THE COMETS
Published January 31, 1997
The WNBA Houston Comets unveiled their name and logo yesterday, according to W.H. Stickney Jr. of the HOUSTON CHRONICLE. The Comets' colors will feature "Fireball Red" and "Galaxy Blue" trimmed with "Stardust Silver." The logo is oval-shaped with stars and comets dotting the inner blue space and a basketball shooting through the oval and trailing a red comet tail. Rockets Exec VP John Thomas said the Comets have already sold 1,000 season-tickets so far and said that each of the 15,000 Rockets season-ticket holders will be sent a five-minute videotape highlighting women's basketball (HOUSTON CHRONICLE, 1/31).
