San Diego Padres minor league affiliate to be nicknamed Chihuahuas

El Paso's Minor League Baseball Team Will Be The Chihuahuas

The San Diego Padres have a new Triple-A affiliate based in El Paso and they have finally chosen a nickname to go by. Ladies and gentleman, may I present to you the El Paso Chihuahuas.

Apparently, Chihuahuas beat out a whole list of other worthy candidates, including Aardvarks, Buckaroos, Desert Gators, and Sun Dogs, among others.

I could be wrong, but Chihuahuas doesn't sound like the best of team nicknames, but it is probably the best from that ill-fated group.

  1. This is the dumbest excuse for a team name I have ever witnessed.
