What is up with that?!?!? New GM and new name for Freedom W-League teamBy: Melissa | November 25th, 2009
(I apologize to any international readers of this here blog as I believe Hulu is only available inside the US) Hulu started streaming Satuday Night Live episodes so I’m all caught up on this season and now I really really want to rename our tier 2 W-League the “What up with that” league. Basically, I just never had the opportunity to get that ball rolling UNTIL TODAY. The Freedom’s W-Leage side hired former dev player Joanna Lohman as the new GM. The first order of business was to rename the team and the new name they came up with was Freedom Futures. WHAT IS UP WITH THAT?!?!?! That is a horrible name! What’s wrong with the name they got now? Do they really think we can’t tell the difference between the two squads? This one goes right up there with the Hudson Valley Quickstrike Lady Blues, FC Gold (Good Lord), and *cough* the CyberRays. I am with Kenan Thompson here: what is up with women’s soccer teams coming up with the worst names possible? Is this some sort of horrible tradition? And Freedom Futures? Are we watching a semi-pro soccer team or are we investing in the stock market? I am serving this decision two giant cups of FAIL.
