should i remove the MLS teams from the quiz? not a lot of people are getting them and a lot quizzes have comments involving people not liking when MLS and WNBA teams are included in sport quizzes

Might want to specify that numbered teams (76ers, 49ers) aren't included. Also, for the MLS, "United" should be acceptable without the city name, in keeping with the others.

"Trail Blazers" the team name is two words (http://www.nba.com/blazers/) even though "trailblazer" when not referring to the team is one word. I like that mls teams are included as the MLS is climbing towards the level of the NHL and NBA with per game attendance within 500 fans of the those leagues (although over a shorter schedule)

"San Francisco Forty Niners" (the official name) is 23 letters (http://www.hoovers.com/company/San_Francisco_Forty_Niners_Ltd/cjkxci-1.html). Been that way since their founding in 1944. And "FC" is an abbreviation for "football club", so those two need to be revised.
