There Are No Devil Rays Here

We're guessing this kind of the sports equivalent of going into the witness protection program and then putting on fake glasses, growing a beard and dying your hair.

The Tampa Bay Devil Rays announced yesterday that they are changing their team name after this season because of the negative connotation of the word "Devil." (Oh, poor Tampa, as if that's the only problem.) The team doesn't know if it will just be called the "Rays" or will change their name entirely. We think it would be funny if they changed it to "Yankees," just to make George Steinbrenner extremely confused every time he wakes up in the morning.
