Release The Kraken

Post by sfpcc » Thu Jul 23, 2020 6:42 pm

The NHL's new Seattle Franchise will be known as the Seattle Kraken. For those not up on Greek Mythology, (or haven't seen Clash Of The Titans) the Kraken was the sea monster that was slain by Perseus. It's an interesting nickname but it also sounds a little like an Arena Football Team.

Phil Mc will NOT stand for this. By the end of the week, its name will be The Seattle Hockey Team.

The S kind of looks like both the Suzuki and Seattle Mariners logo. I agree that the Space Needle logo is cool.
