ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Another Kardashian romance with Minnesota roots? Well, not exactly.
The St. Paul Saints are having some fun at the expense of hometown basketball star Kris Humphries and his brief marriage to Kim Kardashian.
The Saints playfully announced on Wednesday that their two mascot pigs are engaged and will spend the entire season at Midway Stadium in marital bliss. The pigs’ names are Kim LARdashian and Kris HAMphries.
The names were selected from more than 1,000 entries in the team’s “Name the Pig” contest.
Humphries and Kardashian are currently going through a split after 72 days of marriage. The Saints point out their season is 110 days long.
The Saints have had a pig mascot dating back to 1992. Previous names include Brat Favre, Notorious P.I.G. and, of course, Kevin Bacon.
