Richmond Hush Puppies? New Name Finalist Revealed

Um...wow. CNBC's Darren Rovell (their sports business reporter) led the voting for a 'wild card' name entry. He said that 60% of the suggestions came from the Richmond area, suggesting dissatisfaction with the other finalists. Then again, Hush Puppies have no specific connection to Richmond, either the brand or the fried cornmeal. To be fair, of the other considerations for the wild card entry, there isn't much to choose from. The other names Rovell considered: Hellbenders, Grits, Stink Pots, Battle Ants, Cicadas (really?), River Raptors, Tree Frogs, Blood Suckers and Dirt Balls. Yikes. You can still vote here.
