    Is there a good sports team name bouncing around in your mind?

    Way back when the Minnesota Timberwolves came into being I was amazed how cool that name was. (Well that was before the a wolf hunting season on the canids came into being). With the current need to re-name teams for several reasons do you have a name you'd think would be desirable for some team?

    I think the Fire or Irons might work. Any others?

    I am surprised it took so long for a team to use the nickname Pelicans.

    I guy that I formerly worked with (who later moved to Arizona) won the contest to name the Arizona Diamondbacks. There were 6 people who submitted Diamondbacks and they pulled his name out of the hat. His prize was 2 lifetime season tickets.

    Too cool! That was so regional and original (as is the T-Wolves).

    That's more of a curse than a prize.

    I always wondered if it would be better if we were the Iowa State Tornadoes.

    Speaking as a Cubs fan, I disagree with this statement.
