Well, at least we'd have an appropriate slogan: Houston, las Aguilas have landed.
SD-Rochester-Cleveland-Houston would be nice add-ins towards filling out a national footprint. If we could then add Seattle and Philly it would be a sweet sixteen.
Get that man a job writing headlines for the Chronicle.
Chivas de San Diego
At that point the league would need to take a couple of years to bring the talent level back up before expanding further.
The Texas Houstonians
After watching the highlights from the Browns game today it occured to me that if Cleveland is an MLS expansion city then their colors should definately be some shade of orange. I remember Jeff Bradley talking about how MLS could use a team with orange jersies and it'd seem to me that Celeland would fit nicely.
If Detroit ever got in the mix I think they could take the Express' thunder and go with an orange and blue uni, but I'd prefer to see an MLS team with an orange and black kit ala Holland.
Houston Americans wouldn't be bad, especially considering how "patriotic" Texans are.
And don't forget the famous.
"Houston.. We have a problem."
They should try and sell Club America on Rochester. For some strange reason, the Rochester Americans just has a nice ring to it (note: only minor league hockey fans will get or even care about this comment)
Minor League Hockey fan, hah, i get the comment...
i know (or are hoping) your not serious though...
Rochester's Soccer team will and always will be the Rhinos...
Go Americks!!!!! But it's been done, I still like Houston Hotspurs, very Texas.
Still the best I've heard.....never happen...
BTW if anyone from Pumas is thinking about coming on board, may I suggest Memphis......I'll learn Spanish AND help with the stadium - I have a shovel........and a hammer somewhere.....oh, and some loose change in the ashtray to help with the expansion fee.....
...OH, and I have a couple of gift certificates to Home Depot - they're yours.
Not serious at all. I lived in Rochester when I was a little kid and have alot of fond memories of the Amerks though. They probably turned me on to pro sports.
Well, duh: Houston Eagles. Club America and their Spanish-speaking fans could still call the team "Las Aguilas," and all of those Hispanophobes would have their English-language, and, in a nice turn of events, non-hokey, nickname.
Because when people think of Houston they think of eagles...er because when people think of eagles they think of Houston...er...
Agree, also 2004 KC moves to Miami!
"*beep* Tranquility base here.... *beep*....the Eagle has landed....*beep*"
Yeah, there are WAY more Eagles in Philadelphia than in Houston. And Bears in Chicago, and Tigers in Detroit, and Rams in Derby, and Rhinos in Rochester.....
And Lakes in Los Angeles, and Jazz music in Utah, and Saints in New Orleans, and Earthquakes in San ...never mind.
Uh... does the phrase "The eagle has landed" mean anything to you? Where do you suppose that came from?
Oh no, now they're going to put an expansion team on the moon?
Since MLS likes to name things after nature and other abstract things, how about the Houston Humidity. Quickly nicknamed the Hums or Ums during bad years.
