    The article about sports teams with less-than-brilliant names mentioned the LA Dodgers as on a par with Utah Jazz, because the name originated in Brooklyn when that borough was covered with numerous streetcar lines, and the locals were dubbed “Trolley Dodgers”. As an historical note, when the Dodgers moved to LA in 1958 and took up temporary residence in the Coliseum, Los Angeles still had trolley cars, some of which served the Coliseum. And the last trolley lines in Brooklyn quit in Oct. 1956.
