    Team Nickname Trivia Challenge

    Here is a challenge open to all.

    The first person to correctly answer the following question will receive a bonus entry in an upcoming World Series Playoffs Contest I will be hosting.

    Please post your answer in this thread.

    Among the "Big Four" North American professional sports leagues, there are several pairs of team nicknames that differ by only one letter.

    Example: Jets-Mets

    Name at least four other pairs.

    Please note that variations of nicknames are not permitted (for example, you can't shorten the Blue Jays to the Jays to go with the Rays or the Chargers to the Bolts to go with the Colts).


    Good luck and have fun!

    Nice work! You have a bonus entry in the WS contest, if you choose to enter.

    There is still at least one more pair. Anyone else who can name it/them will also earn a bonus entry.

    Although I was referring to nicknames having letters in the same order (only one letter different), I will give everyone before this post an extra entry in the upcoming playoffs game.

    Thanks for participating. Stay tuned...
