A couple of weeks ago it was announced that the Padres' new Double A team in Amarillo, TX would be named the "Sod Poodles." Lol, in keeping with the Chihuahuas, etc. There was a public contest to pick the name and Sod Poodles won out. Now it looks like there may be some trouble with trademarking that.

By the way this is because their former Double A team was the San Antonio Missions, and it was announced last year that San Antonio will now be affiliated with the Milwaukee Brewers but upgraded to a "Triple A city." So the Padres' team had to go somewhere else.

Perfect for a parent club that plays in Petco Park. Very Happy
