ESPN's John Buccigross Loves Walleye

I LOVE the name Toledo Walleye. LOVE IT! Imagine the Trucker hats one could produce! Minor league sports are supposed to be goofy! That's the whole point! Why do I keep using exclamation points! Shawn, you'd better smuggle in a walleye and throw it on the ice when the Toledo Walleye score a goal in their new arena. If the organization wants me, I'll show up and throw out the first fish.

the nail on the head "Minor league sports are supposed to be goofy!". Look at all of the existing names lansing lug nuts. The Louisville bats, Mud Hens etc. Even in the echl, the nailers. Stop taking this so seriously. There were some unoriginal fans that used to throw octopi on the ice, isn't that a Red wing thing? (Yes I know they were their minor league team). A flying walleye would be hilarious! I heard from someone on the inside that they are going to have some sort of sequin or something on the uniforms to simulate fish scales.

It's better than the Toledo Zebra Mussels or the Toledo Finkbeiners.

didn't grow up in Toledo...which means he didn't inherit negativity and cry baby syndrome. Toledoan's should be glad to have a hockey team...

One team in the league is the Victoria Salmon Kings. Now thats goofy.

"He also didn't grow up in Toledo...which means he didn't inherit negativity and cry baby syndrome."

Hahaha, very fitting!
