Admirals temporary name change: Milwaukee Fish Fry

Nothing says tradition in Wisconsin quite like the fish fry – and the Milwaukee Admirals are embracing it in a big way. The team is temporarily changing its name to the Milwaukee Fish Fry on March 11 and 12.

A news release says the transformation is capped by jerseys that the team will wear during the games. They feature the Milwaukee Fish Fry Crest, which features a walleye being lured by fries, on a red-and-white plaid pattern similar to the table cloths that adorn the tables of the best fish fry establishments in the area.

Both the Fish Fry logo and jerseys were designed by Dozella Graphics of Hartford, WI.
