I was going to say that Cleveland Steamers sounds cooler — that the idea of a baseball team steamin’ and chuggin along like a choo-choo train sounds more Cleveland-ish…a better fit for a rugged, working-class, rock-n-roll city like Cleveland. But then I looked up the local slang associations.
“We remember those moments, as we move forward with change / You see, it has always been Cleveland that’s the best part of our name.” — from ad copy read by Tom Hanks.
