Great Read......but Fk the Pelicans, it still stupid.....Why not 'The Honey Badgers"
When you have to explain why your team name is appealing....it isn't.
And who the hell is going to buy their crappy Pelican gear????
That's going to be far less popular than that sad @ss Miami Marlins Miami Vice inspired garbage that is 30 years late
Re: F*ck you, Pelicans are Awesome: A Defense of the NBA's Best New Team Name
Being a Louisiana native I initially hated the name when it was being rumored months ago. It slightly grew one me. After seeing how polarizing the choice has become I've grown to love it. I like the idea of having one of the more unconventional names in pro sports, even though after a full season no one will care, again.
