Hockey in Iowa

A lot of craziness has been going on in Iowa with their AHL team. After changing their affiliation this season from the Dallas Stars to the Anaheim Ducks, their name of the Iowa Stars, just didn't make too much sense, so they changed it. They did however get a tad bit carried away.

They renamed their team to the Iowa Chops, which well a bit cheesy really isn't too bad. Then they made their logo the head of a roasted pig. Then as if the team wasn't getting enough attention despite being a minor league team out of season, they then offered a contract to Brett Favre. Now Favre has had an odd enough off season to begin with, but nobody (including those who offered him a contract) have an clue how his skating ability is. Suddenly Jagr going to Russia isn't the oddest story of this off season.
