Saw that movie maybe 2-3 weeks after it came out in one of the smaller theater venues on the side. Nothing but teenage girls in there. Very creepy vibe. Felt like I was doing something voyeuristic by being there. Got the distinct impression it wasn't the first time most of them had seen the movie.
Now I provide life insurance benefits.
I wouldn't love Angels, but I could grow to like it, I guess.
Charlotte may want Hornets name
The beginning of that 2nd paragraph......If the Hornets nickname becomes available, Charlotte might be intersted in getting it back.
When the Hornets moved to New Orleans in 2002, owner Tom Benson said that he would like to change the name to something more fitting of the Big Easy. Before Wednesday's game, his wife Gayle reiterated that idea and added that the franchise would also like to change the team colors from teal and purple to red, gold and navy blue.
With New Orleans Hornets owner Tom Benson sticking to his desire to change the team’s nickname to something more fitting of New Orleans, Charlotte Bobcats owner Michael Jordan said he would be open to trying to bringing back the Hornets’ name if it becomes available.

Benson’s wife, Gayle, said in a television interview before this past Wednesday’s game against the Utah Jazz that her preference for new team colors would be navy blue, red and gold.
``It's definitely an interest down the road, but right now it's the New Orleans Hornets,’’ Jordan told the Charlotte Observer. ``We would definitely entertain the opportunity. That's as much as we can say right now. We've heard the community ask the question, and we would listen."
The NBA's Board of Governors would have to vote in favor of any name change and the process usually takes two years to complete.The Hornets moved to New Orleans from Charlotte in 2002. A league spokesman issued a statement after Gayle's comment Wednesday night saying: "The NBA has final say on Hornets colors and name change. That process has not yet taken shape. Red, navy and gold is a combination the Bensons prefer."
So those colors aren't official yet? I was under the impression they were already on the books.
Not official until the NBA approves, and it's conceivable they won't (since I just conceived it). I don't know why they would not approve it.

So let's count instead of wonder.
Cavs (and this isn't similar to the Crusaders brought up in the other thread? "Wine" instead of Red)
oh i know man, looking at the logos on NBA.com. alot of teams use the Red/Blue color scheme. i prefer black myself but its nothing to really get all upset over.
this could change numerous times before a decision is made anyway
Yes, it could change.
I think your feeling on back is shared by ownership, and navy is near substitute.
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.
