They are sort of like flying deer ... in that if they fly into your car ... your car is going to be severely damaged.
And in full flight, they are a thing to behold. I saw a bunch of them flying at full speed while on the seven mile bridge looking like Klingon Warships in formation.
I'm not sure how you image them to the game of basketball. They are not known for their jumping. They are not known for being graceful.
I could see them in hockey. Those poor penguins won't have a chance against a collision with a pelican.
The hippopotamus is a fucking TANK. They're huge, they're mean, they are badass. You get hit by a hippopotamus, you won't know it for long, because your ass will be DEAD in a second. 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!
