This is what TWC/ Spectrum's TV Guide shows for 20/20 tonight.

Aside from the error in the synopsis, I don't believe this guy and the other (now deceased) did it.

Freaking 10 years ago I started this thing. Crazy.

Thanks for keeping this going, Nation.

Say NO MORE to our slave name!

Sort of. Still using the school name rather than the team name.

I wonder what the reaction would be at the Chicago fire when someone tried to explain that although our actual name is UNC Charlotte but we want to be known as just Charlotte for athletics. Maybe some eye rolling and simply ignoring it because it's too much info coming at them for a simple school name correction?

Technically their name is Chicago Fire Soccer Club or Chicago Fire SC.  I have NEVER seem them represented as such in any official fashion.  They should understand.

It looks like they took down the post (which is strange because they could have easily just edited it), but Belfast Mill had a Facebook post advertising the UNC vs NC State baseball game downtown tonight...  ::)

clt says the Charlotte Panthers would be the preferred nomenclature.

Still true but the announcement of his pick at the draft on espn got it right by just saying CHARLOTTE, like Temple, Vanderbilt, etc. Was nice to hear. Go Larry!!!

"Carolina" has been playing football for over 100 years.  As one of their founding players, and having started every game, Larry is just the kind of ironman Browns fans are going to love.
