Philly has the best names in sports,. Thee End. We are rivaled only by Texas (maybe NY) in sports names. We have relevance, originality and just plain better than your sports team-ness. Our one City is the better than states upon states of names. Here are some of the best names in sports (to me). If you have a case against the Eagles then think that Philly used to be the capital of the USA…
Philadelphia – Eagles, Flyers, Phillies, Rage, Sixers, Phantoms, Kixx, Quakers (old hockey), Union, Independence, Wings, Feedom and Soul.
Once again all Texas teams do well on name. First loser, second place.
Texas – Cowboys, Texans, Desperados (now defunct), Vigilantes,Amarillo Dusters, Drillers, Mavericks, Rockets (Houston we have a problem), Spurs, Tornado, Astros, Rangers…you get the picture? The teams below are relevant to their respective City (to me) and unique slash some what original in theme to represent their City.
New Orleans Jazz
LA Clippers, Denver Nuggets
Washington Bullets (if they only knew)
LA Sparks (flashing lights)
Chicago Sky (skyline maybe)
