Is that true?  I was pretty sure it was Anaheim that didn't want them
to rebrand themselves as the Los Angeles Angels, not Anaheim--they
promised to become the Anaheim (instead of California) Angels a few
years ago when the town helped pay for the renovations to the "Big A"
(their stadium) and now, as I understand it, they want to renege
because L.A. is sexier than Anaheim.

>  So, there has been a proposal to name the team "The Los Angeles
>Angels of Anaheim."
Yeah, *that*'ll work.
