    these names have nothing to do with GR, we should call the team The Brewsters! After all, we are Beer City USA!!

  • GRPride

    GR is also the "furniture capital" of the US… Chairmen works! Plus, it's unique, and I can see that name going in many directions. Pretty cool logo floating around on Twitter if you search #chairmen
