The annual search for a moniker for the porcine mascot of the St. Paul Saints (independent; American Association) has yielded a winner, as the ball-toting pig will be named Justin Bieboar.
“Midway Stadium has played host to numerous musical sensations over the years including Bob Dylan, Hootie and the Blowfish, R.E.M. and Willie Nelson, but never for more than one night at a time” said Saints Executive Vice President/General Manager Derek Sharrer. “We consider ourselves and our fans very fortunate to have a performer of this pig’s stature committed to entertain at Saints games throughout the summer.”
While Justin Bieboar was the winning entry there were many other worthy candidates that didn’t get he nod such as Oprah Pigfrey, Conan O’Briham, Natalie Porkman (The Black Swine), Shaquille O’Squeal, Squeally Dan, Buckingham, Brat Blyleven and Piggyleaks.
