I've always been amused by sports teams that are named after the city in which they're launched, then move to a new city where their name doesn't make any sense. There's a lot of that in the NFL. I'm reading an article about the Charlotte Hornets, which are moving to New Orleans next year. The article says the last move was the Grizzlies from Vancouver to Memphis. Does anyone think of changing the damn name of the team?

Oh, and the article says that the previous move before that was the Jazz, who left New Orleans for Utah. Sheesh.
