Maybe it's because the teams know they're marketing to kids and families, or maybe it's because there is nothing to do in small towns but sit around and ponder weird ideas, but the best team names and logos in sports are undoubtedly in Minor League Baseball.

Last year, the Houston ISD purchased several dozen houses to expand an inner city high school. The old residents moved out, but the school district did nothing and the criminals moved in. Now the area is a trash-filled, crime-infested ghost town in the middle of our city. Dane Schiller gives a look at the neighborhood's homes before and after.
Several dozen houses were purchased last year by the Houston Independent School District to get land to expand a high school. Residents in the surrounding area of Independence Heights worry the structures that are abandoned have not only become an eyesore, but could provide a haven for criminals.

We dug up something strange this week at the U.S. trademark office website. Texas' Blue Bell Creameries may have some strange new flavors in the works: Camo 'N Cream and Pink Camo 'N Cream.

This may be the worst investment opportunity ever – interested?
As investment opportunities go, this would probably not be recommended for the financially timid or the soon to retire, but it shows great potential not to be boring.
