How deep is the San Antonio river?

In places along the Riverwalk the river is only about 4 or 5 feet deep, but the San Antonio River is quite varied in depth and fluvial geomorphology from beginning to end. It begins at the "Blue Hole" north of Downtown, a spring flowing out of the Edwards Aquifer and joins other spring-fed tributaries downstream. The Corps of Engineers has greatly altered the form of the river for flood control purposes. Just south of Mission Espada, about 11 miles downstream, the river returns to a "natural" river form, with riffles and pools that can be over 15 feet deep. From San Antonio, the river flows southeast 180 miles through Wilson, Karnes, and Goliad counties and then forms the county line between Victoria and Refugio counties. It empties into the Guadalupe River four miles north of Tivoli at the intersection of the Calhoun, Refugio, and Victoria county lines. Floods are frequent, and cause the river to run fast and deep. see http://www.edwardsaquifer.net/sariver.html for a great overview of the river in San Antonio.

How did the San Antonio Spurs get their name?

the spurs got their name from a spur as in the thing on the back of a cowboys boot since they are located in san antonio texas

An unusual business deal brought a marginal pro basketball team to San Antonio, Texas, and a "name the team" contest was held and "Spurs" won. The San Antonio Spurs became a reality when the wealthy owners of the Dallas Chapparals of the now defunct ABA unloaded them to a few San Antonio businessmen headed by Angelo Drossos. The deal was so tenuous that the first year the team was essentially rented... and only purchased at the end of the first year in San Antonio... a most unusual beginning for a team that would enter the NBA three years later... and win multiple NBA Championships. It's a great team name... short, spirited, and reflecting the Old West heritage of San Antonio, Texas... at least in SpurEd's opinion.

Sports teams usually get there names by what their city has to offer. Examples are: Orlando Magic (NBA)- Disney World, Pittsburgh Steelers (NFL) ' Steel Town USA', and Houston Astros (MBL) NASA Space Center Headquarters. Unfortunately since a lot of teams are being relocated its hard do remember where there original hometown was. If you want to find out where some Modern day teams got there name from somewhere else go to Chris Creamer's Sports Logos.

How many players total is the September roster expanded to and how many are allowed in postseason rosters?

In Major League Baseball, teams may expand their active rosters to 40 players on Sept. 1, this includes for the playoffs as well. In the playoffs however you can only have 25 active players, the reason 40 players are on your roster is because unlike in the regular season you cannot move players to/from your minor league teams during the playoffs.
