Yeah I really tried to like Pelicans but just do not...at all.
Pelicans for life! Creole blue and gold get it done Benson! I hate Mardi Gras Uni's they're nice every once in a while but not as full time colors.
IVE GOT IT! LOGO:
PELICAN ATTACKING THE JERRY WEST SILHOUETTE!!!!!!!!!

And when we suck we can be called The Pelican'ts !
I really want to get behind the "Pelican" movement, but I just can't. Everytime I say New Orleans Pelicans it just doesn't sound right. "Who dat say they gone beat them Pelicans" Sorry it justs doesn't work.
One issue is that Pelicans doesn't have an obvious abberviation, shorthand like Timberwolves had. P-Cans? Pelys? Dem Birds?
With purple and pinstripes from days gone by, I trumpet Hugo's name to the NOLA sky. When rebranders and posers abuse their might, beware my power, TEAL LANTERN'S LIGHT!
Forever hating the nickname, the logos, and the colors. Still backing the team I've loved since 1994.
Stolen name. Stolen colors. Stolen identity. Still the same old worthless Slobcats. Suck sludge, Charlotte.
They swear up and down that they invented that phrase to. Just changing "Dat" to "Dey" doesn't mean a thing.
Who dey doesn't even sound right. At least "Who dat?" follows some kind of sense. Who they? Who the hell says that?
It should be "Who dem?" at the least.
New Orleans Pelicans was the name of our baseball team for over 80 years.
They were very frequently abbreviated "Pels". One version of their cap in 1977 had "Pels" written across it.
So, not sure how anyone can say "New Orleans Pelicans" doesn't sound right or that it has no abbreviation.
Our own sports history contradicts both statements.
A football game can't stop hurricanes.
It can't fix levees.
Or rebuild houses.
But it can let a city know...
That it's a city once again.
Welcome back, New Orleans.
I'm digging the Pelicans. I really am. Especially if they use the black/gold/red logo from earlier in the thread. I LOVE that logo!
It's starting to make sense... connect the dots. Gayle Benson hinted at a black/red/gold combo. The old baseball Pelicans used red (as far as I can tell). Homage to the old team of the same name, perhaps.
