“The Kansas City Wiz, You Gotta Go!” was the team’s short-lived marketing battle cry. Short lived on two counts; in the case of the slogan, because the Lamar Hunt family put the kibosh on the blatantly obvious potty humor. And later the team backed down from electronics retailer Nobody Beats the Wiz and went from Wiz to Wizards.
All that went down during and shortly after the team’s glorious first season in 1996 when a superstar named Preki patrolled the pitch.
And while there has been plenty of speculation about naming rights deals at both Arrowhead and Kauffman stadiums, not much has been said about the pending possibilities for the Wizards new home next season in KCK.
How about a possible team name change to the KC Sprint?
