The Angels....seriously?

Well, after much speculation, the Angels today announced a name change. Say Hello to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

Just rolls off the tongue, don't it?

So, does Arte Moreno really think that people in the SFV and Santa Monica will wake up this morning and say, "Dude... the Angels are MY team now!"

If he does, then it makes one wonder how someone who's made so much money can be so dumb. Disney had the right idea: It isn't LA's team, or California's team. It's the Orange County's team. If you must change the name, change Anaheim to Orange County. Play on the wierd inferiority/superiority complex the OC has toward Los Angeles, don't add to it. This is a stupid, unneeded move that will be laughed at nationally.

I figure this will be forgotten within a couple years.
