Well the fun of April Fools’ Day has come and gone. I am reminded of the greatest April Fools’ Day joke I ever pulled; having someone convinced they won the lottery. Good craic as we say in Ireland, but a story for a different blog.
All kidding aside, I see a dark future for this team to stay in Western New York. I have nightmares of semi-trucks leaving One Bills Drive for Interstate 90 West. I remember how the Indianapolis Colts came to be and similarly the Baltimore Ravens. There is hope in the fact there is still a team in Cleveland, but could Buffalo pull off the same maneuver?
As I awoke from my unpleasant slumber, I wondered if the team did leave Buffalo where they would end up. What would they be called? The Los Angeles Clippers are not the Los Angeles Braves (look up the Buffalo Braves kids or ask an adult to help with this one).
So if the Buffalo football team followed suit, what would be a good name for them? The Los Angeles Bills is not going to float. You see a lot of freaky things in Hollywood, but a herd of wild bison is not one of them. So I am asking you Buffalo to do the unthinkable; name the team if it moves to Los Angeles. My pick: Los Angeles Money Grab.
