Friend of mine was watching the sports ticker scroll on the bottom of the screen when he asked, "Who is CBJ?" That's the Columbus Blue Jackets. "Columbus has an NHL team?" I explained yes Columbus has an NHL team. Then he asked, "What's a Blue Jacket?" To that I had no answer.
Is it a Civil War reference? A cold northern cousin of the yellow jacket? Just a random piece of clothing like a Red Sock? Then my mind switched gears and thought of a better team mascot for Columbus.
Take Derek Jeter and combine him with the Blue Meanies from the Beatles' Yellow Submarine.
The Columbus Blue Jeters.
