As long as they're called the Houston Aeros, I'm down for that.

Oilers is taken.

Or they could always consider moving to Phoenix.

Would they also hang a banner for all the Katrinacans? Or did they all become Harveys?

All joking aside, a NASA theme would be pretty cool. I was going to say something about the Rockets doing it first, but it turns out they were started in San Diego as the Rockets before moving to Houston.

Huh. Did not know that. I always assumed the NASA link.

Houston Enrons?

Other than hurricane flooding, I’m having a hard time coming up with any tragedies to make team names out of.

You know, leave it to Houston to take from us the one thing that makes us special. They couldn't even let us be the one major Texas city to kill a president.

For all the names I've seen now that the expansion is official, Seattle Prime is still the best. Wonko nailed it.

As an ex-Houstonian I’d be down with Houston Bombers if Aeros isn’t available. NFL oilers colors of ‘Luv Ya Blue’, red, and white.

Name them Houston Bombers, then relocate them to Oklahoma City.

Is Oklahoma City the smallest city with a professional sports team? I believe it even beats Winnipeg.
