-Go ahead and curse those nasty Columbus Blue Jackets; but those new guys the Ohio Blue Jackets? Hmmmm. Well let's give those guys a break or two.
You're thoroughly confused. It would be more like....

"Ohio Blue Jackets? They were destined to make the conference finals while known as Columbus, but they wish to be grouped in with Cleveland as well, and we're just never finished torturing Cleveland through sports."

There is only one thing that needs to be done regarding the name -- acknowledge the name is for the Native American warrior and not for the somewhat concocted Civil War tale that remains the official story.

BOOM. Curse lifted. Cup lifted.

It will never happen. What three letters would they use to represent the team on sports shows? OBJ? OHJ? OHB? It just doesn't work.

That was a classic.
My favorite, however, had an orange barrel logo and the team renamed "RUMPKE".
Have to dig that one up.

OBJ sounds like a favor with orange juice.

The Ohio Glory worked, even I bought season tickets, had fun and loved the name...

If the CBJ don't start winning soon a nick name change might be a plausible consideration, few have ever been able to convince the NHL population (or CBJ fans for that matter) what the nick name was based on. If I was rich enough to buy the team not only would management be changed but I would also strongly consider a completely new start, including the nick name.

I had tickets for the Glory as well. It was the Glory part that didn't work - and the fact our head coach was an idiot.

Yeah, they needed more work but man I had fun at those games... but it was new, I even had exceptional fun with the origninal losing CBJ seasons for many years, now, not so much.

The one game they won was fun. And the Beach Boys played afterwards! Screw you Frankfurt!

I, personally, think they should change their name to Cougar's Blue Jackets, but...you know...LOL

Your theory that nothing will end a curse faster than being associated with an Indian warrior is an interesting one. Let me pop in my tape of "Poltergeist" to see if there's any credence to it.

WHY?????????

I'm sure the fact that Babe Laufenberg was expected to carry the offense had nothing to do with the team's struggles.

The Kalamazoo Wings of the old AAA IHL changed their name to the Michigan Wings in 1995 in hopes of broadening their fan base.

As with most empty marketing ploys, the name change didn't move the needle. The team went defunct.

Wendy's used to own a share of Tim Horton's and was a key part of them being able to expand into the US from Canada but I'm pretty sure Wendy's sold all of their interest in Tim Horton's a few years ago.

Is this topic even thread-worthy? The source of the rumor is some guy in Montana quoting his cousin in Dayton, for crying out loud.

If this was a trade rumor, the thread would have shut down within minutes.

I see what you're getting at, but in this case I think we've been disrespecting Blue Jacket's ghost by acting like we're not really named for him. By admitting it, we respect him and set his spirit free ...

Playoff games won while this name charade has gone on: 0.
Fact.

SET HIM FREE!!!!

Well, things got a little better when Greg Frey came in mid-season, but that offense was a wreck! Defense and special teams left a lot to be desired too, but they had guys who could make plays.

This is what happens when the team misses the playoffs. You can only talk about the draft and how much Howson sucks for so long.

Columbus Convicts (only fitting since arena built on old pen site). And we fire a bar of soap on a rope out of the cannon when we score a goal !

No they should be call the Columbus Parking Attendants since the arena was build on top of an old parking lot.

Better yet--the Ohio Pens because of the State Penitentiary...and to really confuse Penguin fans when they invade the Arena.

You think essentially 12 years of losing hockey and just plain bad luck is just coincidence??? I think not...Penitentiary Curse is in full effect!
