That Lingerie Football League team that plans to play in Gwinnett in 2013? Just call it the Atlanta Steam.
In a news release, LFL officials announced that "Atlanta Steam" was the most popular choice of almost 4,300 team name submissions. That was among the strongest responses for such an effort in an expansion market.
It's an appropriate team name for the LFL, which is not shy about its marketing appeal. Other team names include "Sin" and "Temptation."
