    It's definitely not the most intimidating name. I think it serves really well to demasculinize them. But then again my team is the Wizards, and it'll be nice to finally have a team in the league with a lamer name.

    Oh what a strange bird is the pelican,
    It's beak can hold more than it's bellycan.
    It can hold in it's beak,
    Food enough for a week,
    But I'm damned if I see how the hellycan.

    I don't see anything wrong with it. Most professional sports teams have dumb names that people have simply gotten used to. Packers? Lakers? Browns? Wild? Thunder? All terrible.

    I kind of like it, it symbolizes the city of NO. Charlotte plans to take back the hornets nickname, which I think is a good move as well.
