        Iowa Pre-Flight was a dominant force in college football during WWII.

        Their Seahawks nickname also didn't make a lot of sense geographically, but it was a naval school so that was fitting.

          The Jazz, Lakers, and Dodgers made perfect sense in their natural habitat. They don't count.

          The Penguins* were because of ice. You know hockey is played on ice. It's dumb as in unimaginative but it's not even in the top dozen dumbest.

          The Wild is stupid because (1) Singular American sports team names are stupid. This is not Europe. (2) Even among singular names, "Wild" is spectacularly lame. At least there was a Chicago Fire. The logo is cool, though, except for the red which kinda ruins it. Make that a darkening grey you've got a beautiful color scheme. As it is it looks like the early Devils abortions.

          But none of this matters because there will only ever be one Minnesota NHL franchise -- the keepers of the best logo, the best name, and the best color scheme in American sports history.





          * Fun fact: without looking it up, what's with the triangle? I didn't know.

                That is correct. I had never heard that and my Mom grew up near Pittsburgh.

                    Nice. I vaguely remembered being told this when I was out there for the frozen four years ago.

                              I know this was sarcastic, but yeah, it would help. Unless you bungle it like Buffalo and Eichel, who was lucky enough to be second in a draft with two generational talents, these guys tend to pay off (even if it looks to have taken Edmonton a few years). The crazy thing is if Matthews had been born two days earlier, there would've been three generational talents in 2015.

                                So a team could win the Cup this year, and still pick first overall. What a fcking joke this league is.
