CC video of the day: Charlotte pushes to reclaim ‘Hornets’ name

Ever since it became official that New Orleans will drop "Hornets" and become the "Pelicans" next season, Charlotte is in full force trying to reclaim the team's original nickname to replace "Bobcats."

Titled "Let's take back our buzz," (which sounds like some motto for hard core drinkers) check out the video of the push for "Hornets" to return to Charlotte.

Between a hornet and a bobcat, the bobcat sounds more ferocious but I get it. The city wants to go back to its roots and perhaps use it as a fresh start considering the Bobcats have not been successful in the NBA.

But I wonder if any team will be clamoring to claim the "Bobcats" team name in the future. it is much better than the "Pelicans." Yeah I am not a fan of that new name for New Orleans.
