BIRMINGHAM-BY-THE-SEA: BEWARE OF BARRACUDAS

     The CFL franchise in Birmingham announced that it will be
named the Barracudas -- "never mind that there is no salt water
within about 200 miles of Birmingham."  Team Owner Art Williams
said the choice was based on the reputation of the fish, and not
geography.  Williams: "It's an animal that's vicious and mean.
No other team in pro sports is called the Barracudas" (AP/N.Y.
TIMES, 3/15).
