    No, like the "forty" it was named after the 40oz beer... the Colt 45

    LOL....Ask Dick Barkley...he was at the feed store this morning actually.....
    It was the result of a "name the team contest"....nothing more nor less....Dick was the PA guy there in the first few years....

    Thanks to The Sarge for that info.
    And it sounds like a coincidence that you saw Dick Barkley there this morning.
    There must have been something especially appealing that made that name the contest winner, at least to the contest judges.
    Even though the name didn't last long, it sure was a good one.
