    This is fun...that would make our local AAA team the Utah Stingerz of Salt Lake AAA affiliate of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim? Put that on a hat.

    Not to split hairs, (though Disney did when I sent them a letter of complaint about their absurd name the year the Ducks joined the league) but it's "The Mighty Ducks of Anaheim." :rolleyes

    Only because you didn't watch that movie a zillion times - but now that your kids are older you'll appreciate it.

    Teams aren't honest anyway. NY Giants of East Rutherford NJ anyone? ( and the only reason I know that is because of the Bachelor)

    Actually Eny, my complaint was that they were naming the team after a Disney children's movie. I told them that I fully expected them to take the ice wearing gloves with three fingers and that the goalie's helmet would have mouse ears sticking up from it. I got a form letter from Michael Eisner thanking me for "showing interest in the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim."

    [/threadjack]

    The new owner of the Angels must be a complete idiot. If he wants broader appearl go with "California" again. NOBODY is going to buy anything that has both city names on it.

    And I thought the NHL Players Association was run by idiots.

    Unfortunately there's been a collective bargaining agreement between all the major leagues as well as all the major players associations for 'idiotic' revenue sharing.

    The Angels owner Artie Moreno is considered to be a pretty solid guy,but to sign off on this you gotta wonder if the guy is making a brilliant marketing move or if he's just cracking up.
