The Facts about the Laredo Lemurs
Fact: Lemurs never lived in Laredo. Fact: Lemurs are known to inhabit the distant island of Madasgascar. Fact: Madagascar is also the name of two highly successful animated motion pictures. Fact: The Laredo Lemurs season opener is scheduled for May 17th. Fact:The scheduled release date for Madagascar 3 is June 8th. Fact: This coincidence (season opener and release date) are the only reason that the Ventura Group decided to name the team after those exotic animals that have absolutely nothing to do with Laredo.
Also, what is up with the above picture? Is the muscular lemur giving his back to the pitcher? He certainly looks like he's facing the opposite direction. I guess the brains behind the Lemurs marketing had to come up with something creative and that's the best they could muster. Not only is his back to the pitcher but he's holding both of his arms up. Is he surrendering already?
