Greater Names: Great Lakes v Dayton. MLB Greater name???

It was a game I caught glimpse of.  The Loons of the Great Lakes versus the Dragons in A-ball.  An alliteration of America's game.

Great names indeed.
The Great Lakes moniker is missing out of higher level sports.  Most notably in hockey, I'd say.
And so many cities in the region could use it, and in the vein of my pitch as a tag team city.  Some leagues are missing out on Indy, Cinci, Columbus, Cleveland, Milwaukee and even Detroit (because there's no Detroit Arsenal yet). 

The Megaloppers
North Shoreman
South Shoreman

All but MLB has a regional name.  The NFL has New England.  NBA has Golden State.  Hockey and the NFL tout Carolina, combining two states.  MLS has New England as well.  How neat would Dakota Diesel or even Nebraska-Dakota Diesel be?  What about the Southlakes Predators or Fishermen tagging with Atlanta?  And MLB could join the fold with Southern Belles or Drawl,... or something like the Southland Band.  ...Apparel sales big time.

I've blogblabbed about it all before in previous posts ..... ....
