Will Brooklyn Eagles land in 2012?
Many thanks to the loyal readers who weighed in with suggestions for a new name for the soon-to-be-Brooklyn-based Nets.
The suggestions included the Coasters, Knishes, Ballers, Bombers, Brawlers and Bridges.
My favorite, thanks mostly to my bias as an old newspaperman, was the Eagles, courtesy of Bob Buscavage of Moriches.
It's a tribute to the original daily newspaper that served Brooklyn from 1841 to 1955 and at one time was edited by Walt Whitman.
