Husky Logo #54


A long time ago, even before my Human was born there was a professional basketball** team in Toronto, Ontario. They called them selves the Huskies. They played the first NBA game ever against the New York Knickerbockers on November 1, 1946.

The team only lasted 2 seasons before they folded.

Then in 1995, Toronto got a new professional basketball team. But they were stupid and called the team the Raptors.

There's a small movement to get the team to regain their original, superior name. I hope they succeed.

**For the record, I prefer American football to basketball. It's more husky-like.

That top picture looks a lot more like an Akita or a Chow to me. If Toronto adopts their new-old mascot, I think they should use a picture of Tubey instead!
