Main Event: Bison or Bisons?


T-shirts seen over the weekend at AT&T Bricktown Ballpark indicate Oklahoma City's new hockey team might be called the "Bisons".

One problem. Bisons is grammatically incorrect.

It's Bison.

Oklahoma Baptist University has it right: the Bison are the NAIA men's basketball champion. North Dakota State is known as the Bison. So is Bucknell University.

But grammar has not stopped sports teams before.

The Buffalo Bisons of the International League are the Triple-A affiliate of the New York Mets.
