    Red Bull New York

    Just think, we could be named the Cincinnati Great Americans.

    NEW YORK -- Major League Soccer's MetroStars are being sold and renamed Red Bull New York.

    Anschutz Entertainment Group, owned by Colorado billionaire Philip F. Anschutz, completed an agreement Thursday to sell the team to Red Bull Co. Ltd., an Austrian firm that manufactures an energy drink. Red Bull also bought naming rights for the soccer stadium the team hopes to build in Harrison, N.J., and will have 50 percent ownership. AEG will be in charge of building and operating the stadium.

    AEG still owns four of the 12 MLS teams: the Chicago Fire, D.C. United, the Houston Dynamo and the Los Angeles Galaxy. Red Bull also owns a soccer club in Austria: SV Red Bull Salzburg.

    Red Bull said its Austrian and American teams will work together "in athletic areas as well as in management and marketing."

    "Projected plans include talent scouting, mutual training camps and friendly matches," the company said in a statement.

    Never in a million years would I have ever imagined SV Austria Salzburg buying a New York franchise. What's next? Cats and Dogs living together?

    Unfortunately, the Cincinnati Kings don't get much press, though I doubt they're in the league of the Red Bull.

    No, they just came to town last year.

    They were mixing with crowd on Opening Day last year (Fountain Square). Seemed like a nice bunch of guys.

    That's the USL, that's about AA-AAA quality soccer compared to the European leagues and a noch below MSL.

    Probably better than the Comets from the early 70's in Cincinnati soccer lore.

    I was referring to commercialism, lol.

    There was an AFL team known as the Miami Hooters once(and yes, it was named after the restaurant).
