Red Bull New Jersey?
Apparently, the MetroStars have been purchased by Red Bull and will be named Red Bull New York.
The MetroStars are yet another professional sports team that plays in the Meadowlands (soon to be moving to their own stadium in Harrison). But unlike the NEW YORK Giants and the NEW YORK Jets, who say that they need to be named after the Empire State because their corporate offices are in NYC, the Red Bull New York (nee MetroStars) are based in Secaucus.
Why is Red Bull renaming the team after a state which has nothing to do with them?
