Suspect arrested in shocking attempted abduction in NYC
Reinvented MLB team:
The Cleveland Indians officially announced their new name on Friday.
The decision to change the name came last year amid racial tension in the U.S. as professional sports teams came under fire for having Native American monikers.
The baseball team will be known as the Guardians.
Cleveland Indians have chosen new name after more than 100 years
It was bound to happen eventually, but what a crappy choice. How about something connected to the state of Ohio and/or the city of Cleveland or the Great Lakes?
Well, turns out the team is named after the art deco statues on the Hope Memorial Bridge near the stadium so I guess thats not completely terrible. Still, its not something people from outside Cleveland are likely to know about.
On the same topic, I have to say that I like the idea of keeping the former Redskins team without an actual nickname. A governmental name (senators, federals, etc.) amounts to naming the team after something everybody loves to hate, and most other politically correct sounding names are just generic and not exciting.
Separate names with a comma.
