Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim?

I'm glad they lost today, they don't deserve to be called the "Los Angeles" Angels. Why not just call them the "Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim of California of the United States of America."

Should the Angels should just change their name back to the Anaheim Angels? Because I'm pretty sure the Orange County Tax Payers enjoy having their team being called the LA Angles, and us LA Citizens don't like being associated to a disgusting team such as the Angels.

So my question, do you think Artie Moreno will consider changing them back to the Anaheim Angels?

Update:

Hey Tom Morello lover, obvioulsy you DONT care about it. I don't even think you live in the OC, cus if you do you would be bothered about the fact that you guys your taxes, but can't have a Baseball team named after their hometown.

    Are you kidding. It was his idea to change the name. The Mayor had a fit and the city even sued Moreno. As a resident of Anaheim, we had rallies and protests to no avail. Mr. Moreno's thinking was the because the Angels started as a farm team in Los Angeles in 62. Those of us in OC wanted them to remain the Anaheim Angels or maybe the California Angels as they were first called.

    I believe Artie Moreno changed the name for some International cache. I see it as ego driven, as every Angel fan I've talked to in Orange County saw it as absolutely embarrassing. They won the 2002 World Series as the Anaheim Angels, they already earned name recognition. Stupid.

    The Angels are a soilid team that play in a weak division (sound like another team?...alright I agree-Manny took the Dodgers to a new level.) I'll root for the Dodgers if they beat the Phillies.

    They should call them the Orange County Angels.

    I seriously think they should consider changing their name into "Los Angeles-Anaheim B*tches of Boston."
