Mainers Offer Clever, Hilarious Suggestions for Portland Sea Dogs’ New Alternate Identity
Portland Sea Dogs
They've done it every season for the last few years. For one game, the Portland Sea Dogs will ditch the "Sea Dogs" name in favor of something else entirely and completely Maine-based.
This past summer, the Sea Dogs transformed into the Bean Suppahs, offering fans a special one-night-only deal on bean suppers they provided inside of Hadlock Field during the game.
Other than the Bean Suppahs, the Sea Dogs have also transformed into the Maine Whoopies and the Red Snappers. And one of the coolest parts about the Sea Dogs channeling an "alternate identity" as they call it is they don't just change the team name.
They go all in, changing the logo, the scoreboard, the team uniforms -- everything.
And even though they just kicked off their 2023 season last Thursday -- a season where they're 4-0 so far and sitting alone in first place in the Eastern League Northeast Division after a 9-7 win over the New Hampshire Fishercats last night -- they're about to change their identity again.
According to a post on their Instagram page, the Sea Dogs will reveal this season's special new alternate identity tomorrow (Thursday, April 13).
Even though as of right now, we're unsure of exactly what the Sea Dogs' new alternate identity will be -- never one to not have amazing and usually hilarious ideas -- Mainers did a mix of both guessing what the new alternate identity will be as well as offering suggestions for future ones.
