I don't care if you pay me millions, I will not call them that.

This has to be worse than when the Angels changed their name from "The Anaheim Angels" to "The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim"

Houston Business Journal: Chick-fil-A 'fowl poles' to make debut at Minute Maid Park

The Houston Astros and Chick-fil-A have inked a sponsorship agreement through 2008 that will bring the restaurant chain's "Eat Mor Chikin" Cows to Minute Maid Park.

The Chick-fil-A "Fowl Poles" will make their debut on July 25 for the start of the Astros' homestand against the Cincinnati Reds.

The yellow right-field and left-field poles will each feature three renegade cows wearing Astros hats. The baseball-themed cows will be hanging off both poles in fair territory and carrying their message of "Eat Mor Fowl."

The only thing "fowl" about this deal is the pun. It's just pun-ishing.

No, I will not refer to them as the fowl poles when I'm at the game Thursday night. I despise the nickname that much.
