News with a Twist

The New Orleans Hornets will become … the Pelicans?!?

Say it ain’t so, Tom Benson! Tell us the name of our NBA franchise isn’t going to be “the Pelicans”.  Not the name of the old, beloved, minor league baseball team?!?  It can’t be true!

But you’re the billionaire.   The 1200th or so richest man on the planet.  I guess you can name your $350 million franchise whatever you like.  But please tell me its not the Pelicans.

“Nothing strikes fear into an opponent like an angry Pelican!”   Huh?!?

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity that you’ve got to get right.  New Orleans is a unique city and that’s why the name Jazz was such a perfect fit.  Mr Benson, how about the New Orleans “Vibe” or the “Beat” or maybe the “Soul”.   Something unique.   Something different.

The Pelicans were a great minor league name for our baseball team.  But this is the big leagues, the NBA.   And we need a big league name.
