Big Picture Categories: Relocated franchises

King’s Cup might be the best drinking game out there. Everyone has their own version, there’s ample drinking and sometimes — on a few lucky occasions — hot chicks end up naked. One of the best “games” in King’s Cup is Categories, which often is represented by the Jack card. In Categories, the person who draws the card says a category (fast food joints, baseball stadiums, etc.) and everyone must go around the circle naming one until somebody stumbles. When that person fucks up, they drink. Make sense? Good.

In every major sports league, there are a slew of teams that started in one city and moved to another. Like the BASEketball joke goes, “the Minneapolis Lakers moved to Los Angeles where there are no lakes. The Oilers moved to Tennessee where there is no oil. The Jazz moved to Salt Lake City where they don’t allow music.”

So today’s category is naming those teams that started in one city and moved to another. It’s OK if the mascot name has changed (i.e. Houston Oilers became the Tennessee Titans). We’ll start and you guys continue in the comments. You can go again after every five comments. There are fucking hundreds of these! Blow up the comments. Whoever messes up first has to move to Salt Lake City.

We’ll keep it simple: San Francisco Giants (Original City: New York).

All right, folks. Girls dig a man who knows where the Carolina Hurricanes originated…
