Really, what's going to stop a hippopotamus? You think a Chicago Bull wants to tangle with that beast? No, Bulls will be running. Bobcat? Hippopotamus will sit on that stupid little cat. Nothing can stop a hippopotamus.
But seriously, calling a team The Hippos would be idiotic. I don't care that the animal is sweet, huge, and badass, if it's a bad name, it's a bad name!
They would be good for a running based football team. Have you ever seen the offensive line lately? They all look like hippos!
The problem is, ironically, the Fantasia effect. Hippos are forever linked to the world of ballet.
