NEW COLUMBUS NHL TEAM WILL BE INSECTS WITH "ATTITUDE"
Published November 7, 1997
The name of the new Columbus NHL expansion team will likely be the Blue Jackets, according to Wright & Merz of the COLUMBUS DISPATCH. A source told the DISPATCH that the team is "95 percent sure" of the name and that the primary team color "will be blue." The logo will feature an insect with a hat on and the hat "could be a Union Army hat." The source: "It's an insect with an attitude. That's the best way I can say it" (COLUMBUS DISPATCH, 11/7)
