Omaha Storm Storm Chasers - Omaha Potholes

OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — After seeing the idea have so much success as an April Fools prank, the Omaha Storm Chasers are playing as the Omaha Potholes for one night only.

The joke turned to reality after the team started selling shirts poking fun at Omaha's street problems.

You will be able to purchase pot hole gear at the game and proceeds will help repair little league field with the city of Bellevue, as well as DC West Youth Sports, which was damaged by the floods last month.

There will also be giveaways tonight. The first one-thousand fans to enter the park will receive a "spare tire" from Krispy Kreme donuts,

The team is so excited that they can barely contain themselves on social media, changing the name to Potholes late last night.
