I’ve been seeing news about a new hockey team, the proposed Rio Rancho Raptors, planning to take up residence and play at the Rio Rancho Events Center. Before this happens, though, I’d like to contribute some alternate team names that might speak to our region and situation better than “Raptors.”

The Cabezon Captors

The Rt. 528 Distracted Drivers

The High Court Hooligan Crew

The Rio Rancho Dirt Bike Din

The Loma Linda Left Lane Laggards

The Very Evil Enchanted Hills Vehicle-Swallowing Potholes

Okay, we’re getting a little out of control here, but you get the idea. Thanks!
