    NDT failing to spot that Los Angeles is a proper noun there, I think. Grammar doesn`t appear to be his strong point.

    Angeles is not Spanish for Angels

    Yes, it is. Unless you are being pedantic about the accent mark that should be over the "A"

    @Supricky06
    I do happen to speak spanish (comes with the mexican thing), and angeles is indeed spanish for angels. Don`t know who put it in your head that it wasn`t but they`re wrong. There`s a reason why it`s called the city of angels.

    They haven`t been the Los Angeles Angels for quite a while now. They`re the Anaheim Angels.. Anaheim is part of LA, but they haven`t been called the Los Angeles Angels since the 90`s.

    I thought `Los` meant `Lost`... Wouldn`t that make it "The Lost Angels Angels"?

    @kangoala
    It`s hilarious how wrong you are, I`m not trying to be mean but you made me laugh really hard now for some reason. so allow me to help you here a bit. "Los" is the male plural form of the definite article "the", I`m not going to give you a whole spanish lesson about the variety and proper use of definite articles in spanish but just keep in mind that just because a spanish word sounds similar to an english one doesn`t mean they`re the same word.

    Also the spanish word for "lost" is "perdido"
