  1. Idea for Texas teams:

    San Antonio Brigade

    Austin Colony, as in a colony of bats

    El Paso Javelinas


    Are you doing teams for cities that don't have NFL franchises only?

    St. Louis Pioneers

    San Diego Captains

    Oklahoma City Wildcatters

    Memphis Kings




  2. NFL: Houston Texans, Dallas Cowboys

    NHL: Dallas Stars, Nashville Predators (I am a country music fan, and as you know, Mike Fisher is married to one of my favorite singers, Carrie Underwood)

    NBA: Houston Rockets

    MLB: Houston Astros



  3. Dallas has enough Western themed teams as it is. I lived there in the 90s and to tell the truth, Fort Worth is more western oriented than Big D. 


    San Antonio could be the Brigade or something military themed due to the many military bases there.


    I agree with you on Boston and Philly and their historical roles. 


    St. Louis could be the Clydesdales, as it is the home of Anheiser-Busch breweries. 


    Orlando could be the Thrill, but I don't know how you could make a logo for that name, which is a nod to its many theme parks.






  4. That's cool!

    That jersey would work for the name Apollos too, and as we all know, "Houston" was the first word spoken from the moon. I went to Johnson Space Center a couple of weeks ago, and although the space shuttle no longer is in use, they still train astronauts there and communicate with them on the International Space Station. Meanwhile, I wish hockey would make a comeback to the Bayou City because when I was a kid, I'd go see the Aeros play at the Compaq Center often.

    Houston is also known as the energy capital of the world, so you could have also used an energy-related team (Fusion, Force, etc), but I dig what you did

  5. Yeah, I don't get why the AHL teams can't come up with their own names. MSO4, can you imagine a conversation like this?

    Hockey fan 1: "How about those Stars! They kicked butt last night."

    Hockey fan 2: "No, San Jose hammered us 2-1"

    Hockey fan 1: "Your Stars may have lost, but our Stars won. The Texas Stars!

    When you're a farm team like that, is it too much money to have a name-the-team contest?
