A B A adds 22nd expansion team...

... in Bakersfield, California. At this rate, the ABA threatens - in a single offseason - to expand by as many teams as the NBA already counts in its membership.

And when it comes to the ABA and its quality of play/management, I do mean THREATENS to expand!!!

Is it just me, or does anybody else think that the reason Joe Newman keeps handing out expansion franchises is that he's just trying to cover himself for the inevitable day when 95.9 % of the league's announced teams for 2004-05 go "belly up"? He's probably thinking, "Well, if we announce thirty-or-so teams... five or six of them have actually got to make it to the end of the season, right?"

Um, wouldn't we like to know if the logo B, B and S all at the same time...like the rest of them?

You going to say that for every team?

Back on topic.. I heard there was almost a 23rd, but the metro area was later determined to be a traffic jam on a rural section of 1-95.

This league is a total joke lets sign up 10 guys or a playground in the projects and we can have a team for the board, we will have to pick a city to play in though.

They may add a 23rd team before you know it. Apparently, they're in conversations with an ownership group in Ontario, California (East of Los angeles). The group is headed up by a minister who is a mover and shaker in the community.

Wasn't Sweetness trying to get a football team in Ontario?

No, because 1) it's the standard ABA expansion logo Running Joke, and 2) every ABA expansion logo does B, B and S at the same time, WiB! :lol:

He was actually a part of the St. Louis NFL Partnership (a/k/a the St. Louis Stallions).

It's almost like the "Critic"...

"It Stinks"

"It Stinks"

"It Stinks"

"It Stinks"

"Yes, Mr. Sherman, everything stinks"

This commentary has spread to every other logo you don't like. "BBS" has lost all meaning.

It's origination was funny "How can something suck and blow at the same time?" I never included Biting in that either.
