The city of Everett, Washington, birthplace of UFC Hall of Famer Randy Couture, received 140 submissions when the public was asked to help name a town park; the final 10 included “Randy ‘The Natural’ Couture Park” which received two votes. Unfortunately, “Parky McParkface” also made the top 10, with three votes. The Historical Commission has reduced the final number to three locals - David Dilgard, Emma Yule, and Dr. Art Grossman. The historical commission will reduce it to one this week, and the City Council will thereafter make the final decision. Honestly though, Parky McParkface Park is the Randy Couture of park names.
