Penguins fans used to blame their failures on having a sissy bird name.

CSB:

I went to my first NBA game just last night. The Charlotte Bobcats vs The Trailblazers. I had very low expectations as I'm not much of a basketball fan, but actually had a great time. It was a really good show.

I was hoping for the NOLA Gumbos.

Basketball ... meh.

But I really like the name.

Pelicans. Indigenous. Relevant. Fascinating. Beautiful, interesting birds.

Yeah, I like it.

Not enough to actually watch basketball, but I like it a lot.

Isn't it illegal to ignore basketball in Kansas?

If you go on redwill's pet rescue website, he has several shots of the giant "Rock Chalk" tattoo on his back

I had to Google "Rock Chalk." Shows you how in touch I am.

But I found it interesting. So thanks.

I was hoping they'll go with Swans but I'll take Pelicans, I guess.

Yeah... I don’t think we can throw any stones about them naming their team after a bird. I would expect the first volley back to be something along the lines of “Hey, at least our bird can fly.”

Based on what New Orleans is best known for, however, I would have expected the team to change its name to the New Orleans Show Me Your T**s.

Bobcats should try to get the Hornets name back so they can try to forget their ineptness.

All joking aside, Charlotte has actually been considering changing to Hornets if NOLA was to drop it.

First thing I thought of when I heard they were being called Pelicans:

Who is currently on the Pelicans' roster? former Penguins' first round pick Angelo Esposito
