Cities That Had Two Sports Teams… With The Same Name (Part 2)

Last week, I talked about NFL and NHL teams that shared their name with another sports team in their city. If you missed it, here it is. The teams in part 1 all shared their name with an already-existing team, but today, some of the teams existed years apart from each other.

Cities That Had Two Sports Teams… With The Same Name (Part 1)

Imagine if “New York Yankees” was the name of an NFL franchise. Seems impossible, right? The Yankees are so synonymous with baseball and American folklore that it would be weird if another sport had a team with that name. What if I told you that it actually isn’t impossible? What if the NFL had a New York Yankee team? Well, from 1926 to 1929, they did. They even played at the old Yankee Stadium. One of the more notable running backs in the game’s history, Red Grange, played for them in-between two stints with the Bears. It doesn’t stop there, as the team contained four members of the Pro Football Hall of Fame in its three seasons of existence. This proves that the name “New York Yankees” is guaranteed to attract greatness, no matter the sport. Would you believe that there were other franchises in sports that share their names with teams we know today? Well, throughout the history of sports, there have been several. Let’s begin.

Five Athletes Who Were Taken Too Soon

This past week the sports world lost a true legend and a great guy in former Phillies and Blue Jay great Roy “Doc” Halladay, who died tragically in a plane crash at the age of 40. Halladay was a dominate right handed pitcher whose career lasted fifteen years. Over the span of his career, Halladay was 203-105 on the mound with a 3.38 ERA and 2,117 career strikeouts. Halladay was an eight-time all-star, two-time Cy Young winner, lead the MLB in wins twice, and had one perfect game and one post season no hitter. Roy Halladay was one of my all time favorites to watch with one of the nastiest 12-6 curveballs in the leagues history. Halladay played the game the way it should be played. Upon Halladay’s death I found myself thinking about the mark he left on the game and the fans, then I began to think about those who we will never be able to see their full potential.
