Just so we're clear on this, the team's name is not Salty Dogs. The team's name is Saltdogs — no y, no space. The "salt" part of the name comes from the fact that there are salt flats nearby. The "dog" part comes, I assume, from the fact that dogs are cute and cuddly. At least mine is. Yours may not be, in which case you bought the wrong dog.

I did a web search to see if there is a specific meaning to the term "salt dog" (as opposed to "salty dog"). Most of what I found, predictably, had to do with the phrase "salty dog". Of the ones that weren't, the first was the SaltDogg, apparently a contraption you use to spread salt on a road, sidewalk, whatever. They range in size from massive spreaders intended for sale to cities and towns all the way down to little two-wheeled push spreaders that you would presumably use on the walkway from your house to your car. I'd say that I have no need for such things since I live in North Carolina, but the truth is one of these would actually come in handy for me. Raleigh isn't exactly Fairbanks in terms of snowfall, but we do get some, and even a tiny amount of snow can trap me in my neighborhood because there's a hill I have to drive up to get out of my subdivision. For those of you who live up north and are thinking "I can drive up a snowy hill!", that's not going to help you any. I can drive up a snowy hill, too. What I can not do — and neither can you nor much of anybody else — is drive up an icy hill. And if it snows around here, it will get above freezing and the snow will melt just a bit and it will drop below freezing later on and the snow will turn into a sheet of ice in fairly short order. Those of us who live in houses along this hill have gotten into the habit of standing or sitting on our front porches on snowy days, watching cars try to make it up the hill. They usually don't. We're not doing this to laugh at them, however. We do laugh if they can't make it, but that's not why we're doing this. We're doing this because we want to find out if it's possible to get out yet because we're all getting a little stir crazy and want to get out of the neighborhood. And yes, we could simply try it ourselves, but we're not about to, because there are all these assholes standing on their porches laughing at any who tries to get out and fails, and we don't want to put up with us, I mean, them.

The second salt-not-salty dog site that comes up is for a gun store in Mississippi, and this is going to be a very short paragraph because I know better than to make fun of Southerners with guns.

The third is a family-owned company that makes dog collars and is located on the coast of England not too far from the town of Canterbury. I could spend all day playing on that website, because my wife and I are always looking for new collars to get for our dog. We rarely actually buy any, mind you, because we almost never agree on what would look good on him. There's one particular website we check often, and it's pretty much a given that if one of us loves a collar then the other won't like it. In fact, the last time we agreed on one, it turned out they were out of stock and couldn't get the fabric anymore. I'd stop writing this review and spend the next hour or two looking at the collars on this site, but a) I need to get this review done, b) the prices would be kind of high after you factor in the exchange rate and international shipping, and c) they're not the right kind of collar anyway (greyhounds generally need a specific kind of collar owing to the fact that their necks are bigger than their heads). Fortunately I'm not the easily distracted type, or else I'd probably

The logo is a fairly no-frills logo for a team with the word "dogs" in its name. There's a dog's head, a baseball, and the team name. About the only "value added" aspect of this logo is the placement of the ball. That dog is approximately one tenth of a second away from finding it almost impossible to breathe. Whoever threw that pitch should be ashamed of themself. But it does add a bit of drama to an otherwise drab logo, and since no real animals were harmed in the making of this logo, I'm inclined to let them off the hook. But just this once.

Final Score: 57 points.
Penalties: Compound, 34 pts; Equipment, 13 pts; Name, 10 pts.
Bonuses: None.
