"Mighty" flying the coup

Say goodbye to the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim. Sorry, the cellar dwelling NHL franchise is staying, but the name will be sent quacking. In a trend sweeping though Orange County, the team will re-dub itself the Anaheim Ducks. The team was considering a change to the “Anaheim Ducks of Los Angeles and Surrounding Southern California Trendy Spots”, but owners figured the stationary expenses for “all those letters” was more that they cared to bite off.

In another cost cutting move all Duck players with last names that exceed four characters will solely have their initials silk screened onto the backs of their respective jerseys. The team is expected to save $64.50 on the Neidermayer brothers alone next season.
