I also have no comprehension problems either, thank you very much. But have you thought of this.... Wally was a promotional genius I will agree. But do you assume that he missed the boat when the name WBCCI was chosen in the first place? Yes his sister created the club name but he could have modified that name if he REALLY wanted to promote his product, but that isn't what he really wanted. Do you think he actually made a simple mistake?

No he knew where it was appropriate and not appropriate to advertise.

I think that the name of the club is no accident. 51 year old mistake indeed!!!!

The name has more to do with tradition for me. For 50 years it has stood the test of time. I like belonging to a club with such longievity and history. It is like a historical land mark of sorts. Sure they are renaming stadiums to the highest bidding sponsor. There's where I think progress has interferred with historical value. That's my position from this person in the Save Wally contingent.
