The formerly the Charlotte, NC-based NBA team, where the name --Hornets--once more made sense and never has down on the Bayou.
Don't even get me started on the ridiculous naturalistic anomoly of the LA Lakers, a city that, prior to the late 19th century was essentially a DESERT!
But it seems that the New Orleans Pelicans are set to fly into the NBA in the 2013-14 season.
It seems, at least to the team owner Tom Benson, that Pelicans will resonate much more with the local community. Really?!?! Or has Mardi Gras started early in the executive offices?
