^^ Laughable!!!! There are a TON of teams with shared names.....NY Jets, Winnipeg Jets. UCLA Bruins, Boston Bruins, Sac Kings, LA Kings, Oregon Ducks, Anaheim Ducks.
They will be called the Vegas Golden Knights. Bet on it!
Let me start with that I agree with you here! You are correct. It should happen.
But who knows if a person of high position in the Patent Office knows someone of high rank in the Army or knows someone from The College Of Saint Rose (ok, on this one highly unlikely, but you never know) or is an Army vet or a grad from the school (again highly unlikely) ? So maybe this is something personal for someone in the Patent Office, and no matter what as far as they are concerned, this will never happen while they are on watch!
This sounds pretty crazy: one person in a position of power will kill a huge deal because they have a personal beef with it. Trust me, I know it happens all the time. Sucks, how one petty person can kill a huge deal because a personal issue. But it happens all the time.
