If Grand Junction could rename the Grand Junction Rockies, this would be their name. The name Grand Junction chooses for our hometown baseball team is shocking.

With the team name 'the Humpback Chubs' floating around, I wanted to see what Grand Junction though about renaming our Rockies. We asked you on our Facebook if you could rename the Grand Junction Rockies anything, what would you rename them?

This is what Grand Junction would want to rename our Grand Junction Rockies:

  • The Grand Junction Big Horns
  • The Grand Junction Spider Monkeys
  • The Grand Junction Cougars
  • The Grand Junction Eagles
  • The Grand Junction Purple Mountains

Although we did have a few suggestions, the number one most popular team name for the Grand Junction Rockies is:

  • The Grand Junction Rockies

That's right, most of Grand Junction doesn't want to change the team name in the slightest. We're not renaming our Grand Junction Rockies at all, and we're definitely not renaming the Rockies the Grand Junction Humpback Chubs.

As much as I like the native fish and as much as I want to catch one, Grand Junction and also the Grand Junction Rockies agree that it's not a name we'd like Grand Junction to be associated with.
