Yeah, Vegas is small.

I'm going to re-submit my Mexico City idea again.

The people that actually live in Vegas generally don't have a lot of disposable income either.

Seattle NHL group registers names


The 13 names are the Cougars, Eagles, Emeralds, Evergreens, Firebirds, Kraken, Rainiers, Renegades, Sea Lions, Seals, Sockeyes, Totems and Whales.

Some of the names hold significance in the Seattle area. The Rainiers were a  Pacific Coast League baseball team that operated in Seattle for decades, while Totems were a Western Hockey League team that ceased operation in 1975.

Cougars - Don’t use a name that instantly makes you the butt of memes.

Eagles - Maybe don’t pick an animal associated with a football franchise that has a longer championship drought than the *fargin'* Cleveland Browns.

Emeralds - Has any team ever been named after a rock? I guess their mascot could be Andy Dufrane.

Evergreens - Has any team ever been named after a tree? I think a more specific species would sound better. Seattle Spruce or Seattle Pine.

Firebirds - Joe Biden loves this idea.

Kraken - Sounds like a minor league name. On the plus side, the large Japanese population in Seattle can help the team with its tentacle-based marketing.

Rainiers - Has any team ever been named after a mountain? If going that route, I’d rather cheer for the Seattle Ser Sandors.

Renegades - Renegades? “synonyms: traitor · defector · deserter · turncoat” Ok. You do that.

Sea Lions - Probably my favorite of this list. Dovetails nicely with the Seahawks.

Seals - Every time you lose, the media will say you got clubbed. Do you want that?

Sockeyes - This would make them the most delicious franchise in all of sports.

Totems - Enjoy the protests.

Whales - Too close to Whalers. Also too confusing with the nearby Canucks adopting the orca as its logo and mascot.

I like the Seattle Shotguns.

Also, the Seattle Syringes has a nice ring to it.

The Metropolitans would make more sense, since that was their old team's name.

The only name out of that bunch that I like at all is Renegades.

If they put a team in Seattle, which team from the Pacific moves to the Central?

Was just coming to post that.

Sounds like the Seattle Shotguns will be around soon.
