THIS IS THE DAWNING OF THE AGE OF THE COMETS
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).
