Forgettable sports teams

I guess this works best for the lounge.

Now I think this has been done before (and I might have bee the thread starter as well, if so I apologize), but I figure bringing this back to life every so is all right.

So I was discussing this with a friend tonight, and after reading this very issue in a thread about the Rangers it got me thinking, what teams do you find to be the most personally forgettable? While some teams do remain very constant, it tends to change a bit for me every so often.

Texas Rangers

Memphis/Vancouver Grizzlies (Was the Cavs till the LeBron Era)

Florida Panthers

New York Jets (Other than the Broadway Joe days and that a close friend of mine is the only Jets fan I've ever met, I'd hardly notice)

Now I realize that most of these teams have some semblance to a strong past, but for the most part these are the teams that I generally forget most often. If you have teams you feel similar about, or want to defend any of these teams, please share.

P.S. If this already exists and you feel it's just recycling old ideas feel free to dump this puppy, but it's an issue that tends to pop up in conversation with me and my sports loving friends every so often.

I think this may be relative to geography because most of my teams are far from where I live. Then again before the cavs had lebron I would forget that Cleveland had an NBA team.

My current teams of anonymity are:

LA Kings, Pittsburgh Pirates, Boston Bruins (they get lost in the shadow of the other 3 teams there and I have to remind myself that they have a hockey team also), Tampa Bay Rays, Charlotte Bobcats, Minnesota Timberwolves, Florida Panthers, Houston Texans

Teams who once were anonymous but have moved into the front-row of awareness are:

Colorado Rockies

Cleveland Cavaliers

Golden State Warriors

Dallas Mavericks

Teams heading to the forgotten zone:

Nashville Predators

Edmonton Oilers

Seattle Sonics

Arizona Diamondbacks

The Charlotte Bobcats are the only team who's made me think, "Oh yeah, they're playing there now." There are plenty of teams I don't care about, but the Bobcats are the only team I've truly forgotten plays in a top-tier professional league

The Diamondbacks thing is hard to explain. I guess it's the new uniforms, but I forget about their existence easily. If I'm naming the NL west, the diamondbacks are the team I'm most likely to forget. Remember this is all opinion.

Also a Blue Jacket is a civil war soldier. the Union army's uniforms were manufactured in Columbus and Ohio sent more men to fight in the war than any other state.

But if I weren't a Columbus resident, arena employee, or Blue Jackets fan I would probably have a hard time remembering they were in the league. It's not like they've done anything since their expansion and are on the fast-track to their 8th season without an appearance in the playoffs. Perhaps next year, things are getting better.
