    Have all American sports teams sold out in this way? That truly sucks....

    The day that my favourite sports team, Norwich City, becomes Norwich Marmite or Norwich Nike is the day that I rip up my membership card.....

    Is it really necessary? Or is this just the franchise culture? In England a team represents a geographical region, and it stays there...

    Although Americans are screwing that up a bit as we speak... Does anybody else find a sports team being sponsored by a chocolate manufacturer slightly ironic? I mean.... do loads of sports guys, it means that you can eat more chocolate and not get quite as fat!

      Hershey is a chocolate factory but it is not only a chocolate factory It is also the name of a very large town here in Pa. It is the town and not the Factory that the team is named for.

            What does that mean?

            I'm actually not taking the pee.... I just know that their is a Red Bull soccer team in New York, figured that 'Hersheys' and 'Aero' was branding or sponsorship...

          I would not say that I know Hockey. I know Hershey as I live about 30 minutes south of there and Milton Hershey was a great Pennsylvanian.

    We've talked about visiting Hershey is it worth a stop? My wife is a baseball fanatic so we go to different ball parks every year. She wants to see them all.smile

      Ohmaposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      I think that the best things about Hershey are the amusement park and the Chocolate factory. Harrisburg, York and Lancaster all have Ball teams but since I am not a fan I really do not know much about that. There are a lot of interesting things in the area though just depends on what you like.

            I'm on my way! Thanks! Actually while doing my Family Search I found that most of my Dads family came from there. They were in the eastern part of the state in the early 1700's.

                Thats awesome! For some reason our name was changed and half the family took the new name and half kept the old version. It goes back to Germany. We have found the area and the oldest trace seems to be around the 14 century.

                  The name change thing was common over family fueds mine did the same thing also another issue with names is that because all of the records were written by hand the writing was often mis translated and so Becker became Baker and such.

                    I hadn't thought of the feud thing ! I just thought they couldn't read or write. I was told by some family members that where it showed we married a family member it was most likely a native American who didn't have a last name, wierd huh?

                    They first settled in Hampton Co,Pa. and were members of the Old Goshenhoppen Church.
