It was a good name change then.

A little difficult to pronounce.

I knew this one. My husband's from Decatur;)

Sounds like Chicago Bears is a better name, for sure.

Wow! That's unbelievable, and definitely not a good fit. I know they're glad they changed it quickly! I can't see that Mike Ditka would have fit in with a team that had that name. Hugs...
