The name game
Comedian Jerry Seinfeld once said, "Loyalty to any one sports team is pretty hard to justify, because the players are always changing; the team could move to another city. You're actually rooting for the clothes when you get right down to it."
Still, we persist in pouring our heart and soul into following our teams. So, in all this devotion, have you ever wondered where some of those beloved team names come from? Some are obvious geographic matches, like baseball's Texas Rangers or football's Miami Dolphins. And, there's also the historical angle, like the New England Patriots or the San Francisco (gold rush) 49ers. But, what about those real head-scratchers? We've got the answers.
