The WNBA announced today that they are going to stop trying to get people to remember the names of their franchises, and just go with putting advertisements on the jerseys instead. The Phoenix Mercury are the first team to institute the change, as they will just have the logo of identity theft company Lifelock on the front from now on.
With the fact that the franchises move cities so often, coupled with the fact that they play in the WNBA, people often don't even know what city or team name they are watching anyway. Some other team changes are the Detroit Shock as the Summer's Eve Douches, the Los Angeles Sparks as The Pep Boys, and the Washington Mystics now known as just The McRibb.
