Edmond Von Derrick / OKC Barons Name The Mascot Contest


So I head over to the new http://www.okcbarons.com/ on this snowy Alberta morning to fill out the entry form for the new NAME THE MASCOT contest. Well it turns out that you not only do you have to be a resident of the United States, you must live in Oklahoma.

WHAT!?! That's crazy talk.

I live in Canada and we always get stiffed on contests and promotions that are held in the States. Like for example, I think could do really well on Survivor or Big Brother, but I'm Canadian so I can't go on the show. Stupid!

So as I sit at home and get burned again on a contest that I put a lot of thought into. Before you say it. I know, I should have read the rules BEFORE I spent time on this. I thought to myself, I'm going to tell the world anyways. So here it is.

The name "Edmond Von Derrick" is my submission for the name the mascot contest.

Get it? Edmond is Edmonton. Von is very Barons like and Derrick is well... for the oil derricks.

I like it and that's why I'm bummed I can't enter.

I guess I should be use to being Canadian. Even the NHL screws us. *cough* Early game on a Saturday. IT'S SATURDAY!!! You know. Hockey NIGHT in Canada. Not Hockey Afternoon in the United States. It's our game, show some respect. Geez.

Anyways... I'm not bitter this morning. I just needed to vent. lol. Thanks for listening and have a happy Sunday.
