    Everywhere and Nowhere.....I'm the wind, baby.
    Ya know. There's just GOT to be a happy medium between Clash, Wiz, Burn and FC, Real, 1836.....

    I mean, it's a nickname for crying out loud.....Pick something local that doesn't suck.

    I just wish North America had a standard for naming sports teams that had been around for more than a century that could guide them...

    Why is the Chicago Fire such a successful name? It's American, and hearkens to a historical event of great importance to the city. I don't understand why teams can't find something of importance to the city, and name the team after it. (I like Dynamo for Houston, but knowing their city badge, with a picture of a huge fricking locomotive, I thought Locomotive Houston would have been pretty cool--oh, I'm pandering again--but at least Locomotive has a tie to the city...)

    I’ve talked with Bruce and the national team doctors,” Conrad said. “Basically, they said they know what I can and can’t do. They’re going to monitor my progress and take it from there.”

    I know it's been said over and over again, but dadgummit... SLC friggin' treats RSL like an NFL team. Kudos.

    Kudos, kudos, kudos.

    Chicago Fire is a good name because the team has been successful and built a connection. You could name a team the Limp Biscuits or the Moldy Socks and as long as they won a championship in their first year, people would accept the name and threaten anyone trying to change it.

    You can't imagine what it would be like if we could actually win a few games! ;)

    I'm telling you - if we'd got the SJ franchise instead with a competitive team, it would be unbelievable... Salt Lake isn't savy enough to MLS to know it doesn't matter if your team wins or loses - they keep treating it like a regular pro sport... where the results on the field impact the number of people in the stands.

    As an SJ fan, my heart goes out to you.
