Wow, that new name is a real mouthful and really sucks. Its great that they have a new majour sponsor but does it really need to become the team name? Good luck this season, I'm looking forward to getting out to some games.

The Norwood Nitro name is no more.
The OLA senior B lacrosse team formally known as the Norwood Nitro will now be known as Champs Sports Bar & Grill Senior Lacrosse Team, the club announced on Thursday.
The club says it came to an agreement on Wednesday with Chuck Russelle, owner of Champs Sports Bar & Grill, to take over as the major sponsor.
"Mr. Russelle is very active in the local sports world with his sponsorship and support of many teams throughout our community," the club stated in a news release.
J.J. Stewart Motors in Norwood was a longtime major sponsor of the team.
"We thank J.J. Stewart Motors in Norwood for their support during the past few years and they will continue to be a part of our team," the club stated.
