You flatter your fellow posters. I don't get either.


You already got "punters," so here's PEPCON (the quick version):

PEPCON was a chemical company that had a plant outside of Henderson. One of the chemicals they produced was rocket fuel for the Space Shuttle SRBs. One day the plant caught fire. The fire spread to the stored rocket fuel. And that, as they say, was that.

I think the Henderson Shockwaves would be a better reference to it, though (although Hendersonians (Hendersonites?) might feel differently).

Following the example set by Utah's basketball team ...

Hey hey... that's a good Fantasy Football team name anyways...

Las Vegas Aces? LV Royals? Las Vegas 21's?

The (ice) hockey team is called the Wranglers, for what it's worth.

I like your suggestion for th LAS VEGAS ACES and the LAS VEGAS ROYALS. Very fitting in my opinion.

Aces are already a minor league basketball team. Royals were a minor league basketball team (and currently a MLB team in Kansas City). Even the Gamblers were a minor league hockey team.

All the good scary names are used up. All that is left now are "concept" names: "Orlando Fantasy", "Los Angeles Temptation", "Miami Caliente".... oh wait, that's the Lingerie Football League.

The Alaska Aces are a ECHL hockey team... who play the Wranglers a few times each year.

Talking of football, how long a drive is it from LV to Arizona's stadium?

I guess the Las Vegas Jacks just isn't the same? (And the LV Queens gives completely the wrong impression).

Las Vegas Locomotives already exists in the UFL, of course.

Five hours. About 270 - 280 miles, it's like driving to Los Angeles.

Thanks, we could do it as a LONG day trip then. If the NFL season happens might take a tour down there to catch a game then.

Which face cards hold daggers again? I forget.

I like your suggestion os the Las Vegas Aces. It woudl be an even better name for a tennis team, but there's no such thing.

We're getting a UFL team here. We're already on our third head coach and they haven't played game one yet.
