And while you're at it, catch a WNBA game or two.

I'll be at the women's pro soccer game.

Wow - a website with out of date information on it?

I'm shocked. SHOCKED!

Yeah, but this is a tourist website, not one for a school.

Cleveland-Hopkins Airport had a Cleveland Rockers "Welcome to Cleveland"-type billboard at the airport for a few solid years before realizing that the WNBA had long since folded.


/Wait, it was just the Rockers that folded, not the whole league?
//Who knew?

Did anyone outside of Nashville know this team existed, much less folded?

Anyone?

Actually it didn't take the first time, so they went through the whole process again.

/Seriously

Crap, this looks like a story more worthy for a fazed backwash.

Nashville Cats, play clean as country water
Nashville Cats, play wild as mountain dew
Nashville Cats, been playin' since they's babies
Nashville Cats, get work before they're two

Well, there's thirteen hundred and fifty two
Guitar pickers in Nashville
And they can pick more notes than the number of ants
On a Tennessee anthill
Yeah, there's thirteen hundred and fifty two
Guitar cases in Nashville
And any one that unpacks 'is guitar could play
Twice as better than I will

Yeah, I was just thirteen, you might say I was a
Musical proverbial knee-high
When I heard a couple new-sounding tunes on the tubes
And they blasted me sky-high
And the record man said every one is a Yellow Sun
Record from Nashville
And up North there ain't nobody buys them
And I said, "But I will"

And it was
Nashville Cats, play clean as country water
Nashville Cats, play wild as mountain dew
Nashville Cats, been playin' since they's babies
Nashville Cats, get work before they're two

Well, there's sixteen thousand eight hundred 'n' twenty one
Mothers from Nashville
All their friends play music, and they ain't uptight
If one of the kids will
Because it's custom made for any mother's son
To be a guitar picker in Nashville
And I sure am glad I got a chance to say a word about
The music and the mothers from Nashville

Nashville Cats, play clean as country water
Nashville Cats, play wild as mountain dew
Nashville Cats, been playin' since they's babies
Nashville Cats, get work before they're two

This team is doublefail. Moved to Atlanta, then the team restarted, THEN folded.

The Nashville Kats folded AGAIN???

So some random and insignificant website is out of date, just like millions of other sites out there, and this is somehow deemed fark-worthy?

Wow.. I mean I know it's "not news, it's fark" and all that, but this is a bit overboard, no?
 
2008-07-22 12:44:14 PM  
I like the fact that the picture I got with the article touts an arena team but it was taken outside:

www.discoveramerica.com

And just how big is that arena?!

Um, the WNBA is still in existence, according to Wiki.

/Perhaps you're thinking of the NWBL?

Yea, wow...a website that has out dated information, that never happens. I love visiting websites for research and finding the last time it was updated was 3-4 years ago...pretty useful stuff there.

I lived in Nashville up until a couple years ago. Moving back at the end of the month. But I can tell you that most people that live in Nashville and at all points within a 100-mile radius had no idea the team existed. Much less that they left the city. If you aren't the UT Vols or the Tennessee Titans (and to a lesser extent the past few years, the Nashville Predators), you will not get more than a 5 second mention on the local news. Ever. If you are the Vols, however, prepare to be fellated on a nightly basis by every local network, no matter how many mediocre 5-6 seasons you can manage to muster, or how many team meetings your head coach is caught falling asleep in.

Nothing is obscure here. No website is so backwater and no detail is so minute that it can escape the OCD FARKers who filter the internet for errors. Do not taunt the dynamite grammer monkeys either.

That's just how we lure you foolish tourists into an empty arena so we can then have our ways with your holes and take all of your precious Yops (or whatever you call your money... I just know it's worth more than a dollar)

I actually had not realized this. This is my first time learning that that team had folded.
