I'd like to get the feelings of other Mice Chatters that might have an opinion of the Angels attempt, now in the courts, to change their official name to "Los Angeles Angels Of Anaheim".
I've been going to the Big A and rooting for the Angels since the stadium first opened in 1966. (From the original LA Angels to California Angels to Disney's Anaheim Angels, the name of the team when it won its only World Series in 2002).
For those that don't know, the team was referred to as "Los Angeles" or "L-A" in the standings and schedules and such last year, with no city mention at all on uniforms, or within what is now called "Angel Stadium".
My feeling is that while I'm not especially fond of the new name, Arte Moreno owns the team and he has the right to make such a change, so long as he doesn't move the club. I just call them "The Angels". The city is guilty of not having better wording in the 1996 stadium lease, which only requires "Anaheim" somewhere in the name.
And the city, in my opinion, is spending valuable tax dollars in a legal fight...money that should be used elsewhere.
What say you?
