... when you shorten a teams name to a sex act, and nobody - even in Columbus - knows what a blue jacket is, you've failed on a team name.
Memphis Grizzlies... there are no grizzlies in Memphis... probably just black bears.
LA Lakers... not sure there is a lake in LA. You aren't in Minnesota anymore.
Just to name a few others.
I always thought the Philadelphia Phillies was kind of a dumb name. Not even necessarily dumb just a lazy way out. Boston Bossies, Houston Houies, San Diego Sandies. They all sound dumb too but really the concept is no different.
