Philly chooses "Union" instead of perfect name

The official announcement will come Monday, but apparently the new franchise that will join MLS next season will be called the Philadelphia Union.

This story in the Philadelphia Inquirer also shows the colors -- a none-too-original blue and gold -- and the crest -- cool enough with a hissing snake.

The news ends my dream that the new franchise might be known as Philadelphia PC; standing, of course, for Philadelphia Phootball Club.
