No Moose for You: The minor league hockey team in Winston-Salem, NC was forced to begin the season without a name after a trademark dispute. It turns out the team's chosen name, the Moosehead, was opposed by Moosehead Beer, and the two parties were unable to work out an agreement. The team has now changed its name to the T-Birds, which seems to present similiar problems. No word yet from Ford.

On an editorial note, Moosehead? T-Birds? Are we really that desperate for sports team names?
