In the four major sports (five, if you're dying to include MLS). I can think of two

Jets

Winnipeg (NHL)

New York (NFL)

Panthers

Florida (NHL)

Carolina (NFL)

Interestingly, they both involve an NHL team and an NFL team. Can you think of any others, or are those the only two...

You didn't try very hard, did you?

Oilers - Houston & Edmonton

Also, the SEC has two teams known as Bulldogs (Georgia & Mississippi State) and three known as Tigers (Auburn, LSU & Missouri).

And the WAC used to have two Aggies (Utah State and NM State) and two Bulldogs (Fresno State and La Tech).

Yeah, I try not to be too critical ... usually ... but I just stared at the original post with a puzzled look as it came to an early, incomplete end.

Story B: Red Wings go undefeated and score 100 goals in every game. They also beat a team comprised of Godzilla, the ghost of Abraham Lincoln, 2 Power Rangers and Betty White. Oh, and they played in the middle of Iraq on a military base. In the sand. With no ice. Santa gave them special sand-skates that allowed them to play in shorts and t-shirts in 115 degree weather. Jesus, Zeus and Buddha watched from the sidelines and ate cotton candy.

I know that look. That was a horrible night.

Don't think it does, as that's not a nickname.

But in other soccer news, the NASL's Atlanta Silverbacks are poised to adopt their predecessor's name "Chiefs".

That's the one I was coming here to post. We could go on and on with this to no end.

When the United Soccer Association transplanted clubs from other countries into the American leagues, two of them retained their nicknames. These were the Los Angeles Wolves and the Boston Rovers, aka Wolverhampton Wanderers (the Wolves) and Shamrock Rovers respectively.

As did the Redskins and Braves when they were both in Boston. The Pittsburgh Steelers were for a time known as the Pirates after the baseball club.

Those, along with the Giants, were deliberate. The two St. Louis Cardinals was a coincidence.

Then there were the two Browns, a football version in Cleveland and a baseball version in St. Louis, from 1946 through 53.

....And both the baseball and football Browns ended up moving to Baltimore in the end !! ?
