Default New Orleans Hornets pick new Bird Mascot/name...

This was the headline on Yahoonews a minute ago..."New Orleans Hornets pick a name and mascot more befitting the city"


All I could think of was..holy hell, the "New Orleans Jailbirds"

Only because "Welfare moocher" isnt a real bird...

fwiw, they are now the pelicans...which is a complete rip of pensacola's minor league baseball team, the pensacola pelicans.

Nobody cares about minor league baseball. The only thing people care about are $1 beer nights, and they throw in a free crappy baseball game.

Hornets owner Tom Benson has said since buying the NBA club last spring that he wanted a new name representing New Orleans and Louisiana.

The brown pelican is the state bird and has become symbolic of efforts to restore Louisiana's fragile coast, which has been hit hard by the 2010 BP oil spill and erosion from major storms including Hurricane Katrina, which displaced the Hornets to Oklahoma City for two seasons from 2005-07.

Benson owns the rights to the name Pelicans, which was used for decades by a former minor league baseball team in New Orleans.


NBA
Sorry, Red, I'm just not seeing a problem here.

Pelicans can be pretty gnarly...they fly around and land on stuff, they poop, and eat fish...thats crazy.

But they need to watch out for the Nets...
