Cleveland Blues.

Hat is a just a plain blue hat, cause real ball players wear just plain blue hats.
Blue is a color but it's also a mood (sad) and a musical genre (about feeling really sad).

Between the Browns Factory of Sadness and no World Series wins since '48 I think we already have enough sadness. We need something more positive and dynamic. Although to be honest, neither Guardians or Commodores fits the "positive and dynamic" profile; both are rooted in the distant past. The guardians are something like 100 years old and Commodore Perry has been dead for 200 years. Maybe we should try for something more modern and cool (like the Seattle Kraken or the Toronto Raptors). Something that would be appealing to younger fans.

Just hold a seance and channel spirit of the master marketer, Bill Veeck. Ask him what he would do, then do it. Call team perhaps: 10 Cent Beers. Or The Cleveland Riot

This, the Amare Safari, and tracking Gilbert’s plane might be my three favorite threads since I’ve been on this board. There is so much gold in that thread

Cleveland Hellhounds. That’s the name

You could make some nice looking logos with that name..

But then you will have zealots protesting the name... You cannot have the devil or the devil's creatures in your team name since it means you worship the devil lol Not sure if it's true, but I could see it happening lol

I like symmetry and your logo doesn’t have it. Though I imagine it is a naval thing I am missing?

I just can’t see Commodores. It sounds old fashioned and we would definitely be called the commies.
I guess I will do better.

If only I had access to a variety of professional graphic artists to create a logo of corporate quality.

Alas. I am a total loser.

Or, Hellcats. Then use Sebastian's beach cat as the model for the logo. I would actually endorse that for reals.
There are several variations of Beach Cat. None are too thrilled with the beach.
