Congratulations, Philly. You've got a team. Now tell us, what will you call it?
Although the new Philadelphia MLS franchise won't take the field until 2010, the first hurdle to be cleared will be selecting a name. And that is no small task.
Jeff Gammage of the Philadelphia Inquirer takes a look at the process of naming the league's 16th franchise. He doesn't make any suggestions but gives some pointers on some of the things they may want to avoid.
As far as MLS is concerned, gone are the days of the Burn and the Wiz, so we probably won't be subjected to a similar name.
Whatever the new club is named, officials will have plenty of time to make that decision.
