Yes, I think it is time to give this blog a sensible name, and I’m asking for your assistance in doing just that.
When I started this Cardinals blog, it was just meant to store a couple of stories that had been posted in a Google Wave in the event that they shut it down. And they did, but then they didn’t.
There was no plan to continue writing, and certainly not as a contributor to I-70 Baseball, so there was no real need to come up with a cool blog name. Now I wish I had.
Oh, there are some great blog names out there. Viva El Birdos (great historical reference), Pitchers Hit 8th, PAH9 (Play a Hard 9, but I like it better as Pitchers Always Hit 9th), Bleed Cardinals Red With Me, Welcome to Baseball Heaven, RetroSimba (there’s that historical thing again). Even Aaron Miles Fastball makes me laugh each time I read it, just by it’s name.
So I think it’s time for Throatwarber to be designated for assignment (DFA) and sent packing. The name has absolutely nothing to do with baseball, the Cardinals – heck, it’s not even an American reference.
I’ve given this some thought. OK, it was over a diet coke last night at dinner, but that’s not the point. The names that I came up with all sound overly pretentious or stuffy and that’s why I’m asking for your help. The only condition is that that the name needs to be available at WordPress.com.
My *yawn* initial thoughts were
- Cardinal Tales
- Redbird Tales (ok, so I’m not very creative)
- And there he goes (I can’t tell you how many times I heard Harry Caray and Jack Buck say that – and That’s a Winner is way too pretentious)
- Tony’s Doghouse (does that really need any explanation???)
This is where you all come in. Please send some suggestions (or pick one of those four) and help me name this blog. If you don’t want to put your ideas in the comments, feel free to send me a Twitter DM to @Throatwarbler (which will probably go next).
