It’s Woo everything in Worcester
Lucchino may not be convinced, but now there’s Woo Ha Ha!
At the press conference last month announcing the Pawsox would be moving to Worcester, the team’s chairman, Larry Lucchino, didn’t sound like he was a fan of WooSox as the club’s new nickname.
Even though Minor League Baseball trademarked WooSox, Lucchino insisted the club’s name hadn’t been decided yet. When someone in the crowd shouted out “WooSox,” Lucchino smiled but seemed to grimace. “That is one candidate,” he said.
There hasn’t been any serious discussion of the team’s name since then, but it seems like Lucchino is fighting a losing battle if he’s set on beating back WooSox. Everywhere you look these days in Worcester, it’s Woo everything.The Telegram & Gazette has clearly embraced WooSox, particularly the paper’s headline writers. In Friday’s paper, for example, the headline on one story was: ”Worcester says borrowing for WooSox stadium won’t hurt bond rating.”
What can you say but woo hoo?
