I let out an audible chuckle in my office when I read this.
The New Orleans Hornets are expected to become the New Orleans Pelicans, perhaps as early as the 2013-14 season, according to a Yahoo! Sports report.
“We’re doing things we couldn’t imagine,” says safety Stephen Obeng-Agyapong. “But we’re doing them together.”
This is how they'll start the team intro's
Pelican fly, come on pelican!
They'll all model underwear known as "Pelican Briefs".
This is just downright stupid. How very ABA of New Orleans. What Benson didn't want to name them the Piper, Tams, Conquistadors, or Spirits of New Orleans??? On a serious note I thought the name Nights or Knights would be cool and fight the City well because everything cool in NOLA happens at night.
and for a logo they need a pelican with a basketball being shot in it's gullet.
Krewe would have been ideal from a NOLA perspective. Not sure why they went with that silly name, but all fish beware I guess???
"One man didn't build this program and one man sure as hell cannot tear it down."
They really should be the New Orleans Jazz, but that pesky team in Utah stole their name. Quite frankly, The Jazz makes no sense for Utah. Utah should give it back and come up with their own name.
I think in all sports no team that relocates should take the new name with them. The Colts should be in Baltimore, the Jazz in NOLA, Hornets in Charlotte ect. The LA Lakers??? Common. Hypothetically if the Minnesota Viking move to LA are they going to be called the LA Vikings?

Shouldve went with New Orleans Brass (former ECHL team).
Or New Orleans Brass Balls.
