The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim?

Say, huh?

What marketing (sub)genius thought that up? Who do they think they're fooling? Angels fans certainly know that the team plays their games in Anaheim. Dodgers fans certainly know that their boys in blue are the only MLB team in L.A.

Arte Moreno and his braintrust must be thinking that they can cash in on L.A.'s good name by duping those rubes in flyover country into buying "Los Angeles" Angels gear. Hell, as far as those people know, L.A. is everything south of San Francisco and north of Mexico, right? Might as well leverage their ignorance into the sweet sound of chiming cash registers, goes the thinking down in O.C.

Man, I thought Disney was greedy.

And now that this particular Pandora's Box has been opened, how long can it be before a certain NFL greedhead renames his team the Los Angeles Raiders of Oakland?
