Question Names of Teams

Most major sport teams have names ending in S ...

Cardinals
Giants
Jets

How many teams can you name that do NOT end in S?

Phoenix Sun
Oklahoma City Thunder
Stanford Cardinal

MLB only has two. If you get one you will get the other.

How long a list can we make?

For baseball it would the the Boston Red Sox and Chicago White Sox.

The AHL (minor league hockey) has several that I can think of:
Connecticut Whale
Peoria Rivermen
Syracuse Crunch
San Antonio Rampage
Abbortsford Heat

I didn't think about English Football. The teams usually do not have nicknames. That is like saying San Francisco instead of Giants.

And oh, yeah ... The Phoenix Sun is a newspaper, the Suns are a basketball team ...
