Yeah, these "concept word" team names suck, especially when they don't fit the area. Although they were an expansion team from New Orleans, it just doesn't work at all.
I don't like "the heat" either.
Luckily, here in ABQ, we have The Isotopes baseball team. Pretty sweet to be named after a fake team on The Simpons.
