So they tell us...
The New Orleans Hornets will officially change their nickname to Pelicans in the near future, Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports reports.

Ending a long line of rumors regarding the possibility of name change, the Hornets will make an official announcement of the impending move on Thursday, Spears reports. The announcement will also include a new logo, which hasn't been released yet.
 Your challenge now, internet, is to find a photo of this logo and share it before the official unveiling takes place. Go.

Update: Welp, here you go.

Objectively speaking, this is a perfectly fine logo. Maybe a little hood onramenty but that's okay.   The problem, though, is that, for a supposedly "uniquely New Orleans" symbol, they've chosen a pretty generic design.  For instance, but for a little gold, this thing is practically indistinguishable from what they're using in Atlanta.  Freaking Atlanta, fer chrissakes!

I still like the name. Just think they could have done better with the logo. It looks like the bland product of a committee trying to come up with the thing that stands out the least.
