We've all made fun of the Anaheim Angels recent name change to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.
So check this out.
Another baseball team changed their name. The Long Beach Armada. Their new name?
The Long Beach Armada of Los Angeles of California of the United States of North America Including Barrow, Alaska.
I'm not kidding. The LBALACUSNAIBA [that's the acronym] team has the longest name in pro sports. They did so to, I guess, add the LA market to Long Beach [just like the Angels did], plus assure everyone they were in the United States. But why Barrow, Alaska?
Well, to be naughty, really. They chose the northernmost baseball city as their "sister city" and will even have a "Barrow Day" next month in Long Beach.
