After their entire eight years of losing seasons, the Tampa Bay Devil Rays shortened their name to the Rays and, bingo, are in the World Series. Some NFL team names do sound better shortened like the Buccaneers are the Bucs and the Packers are the Pack. But shortening the name doesn’t work for all teams, specifically the Titans and the Jaguars.

“Star Treks” William Shatner and George Takei are trading barbs. Takei accused Shatner of lying about not being invited to Takei's gay wedding and Shatner called Takei “emotionally sick.” To which Takei then threatened Shatner he would switch his phaser from stun to bitch-slap.
