And the name of OKC’s new semi-pro soccer team is…

Last week, five possible team names and logos for Oklahoma City's new third-level semi-pro USL soccer team were leaked to the media. The choices were:

• 46ers• Energy• Flyers• Spirit• Wind

Well, the decision has been made. The name of Oklahoma City's newest fledgling minor league franchise is going to be called...

okc cavalry

Oops, wrong one!



Damnit, did it again.



Ha, forgot about them!

Yikes, I really forgot about that one.


See what I did there? I posted logos for other low-level minor league sports franchises that have called OKC home. The newest one will be called:

oklahoma city energy soccer

Yep, Energy FC. It could be worse, but I'm not a big fan. If the nickname of your sports franchise sounds like a name used by a female American Gladiator, it's probably not a good thing. Then again, I think the entire sports universe is running out of nicknames. I guess it works.

Anyway, I guess share your thoughts in the comments. Do you like the Energy? Think the team will work? Ashamed that we're talking about soccer? Let us know.
