The way that the Deadskins play, the descendants to the Tuskegee Airmen would have a case to argue that they were cheapening the "Red Tail" legacy.

Like the Vikings, Vandals, Giants, Canadiens, Oilers, Cowboys etc.  Just names.

But Chief Wahoo should definitely be binned.  And I've always kind of winced at the Canucks.

(Cincinnati Reds = Redlegs.  Much like the Browns, Red Sox or White Sox.

They just need to change the name but it seems to be a strange line that only 1 team has crossed... Haven't we fucked with the Native Americans enough?

 

What about the penguins, dolphins and bears, etc?

You think they appreciate having their species' identities appropriated for profit?

Lots of teams have crossed the line in the past, but the smart ones already made the change yrs ago.  One of our rival HS was the indians and used the chop, it's now the frigging zbeez or something and that was changed over 30 yrs ago.  We are dealing with the holdouts...  Get with the times...

There are two categories of these names. Apparently Florida State University works with the Seminole tribe to use that nickname with their approval. A bit less clear are the Chicago Blackhawks which are name after a respected chief named Black Hawk. Names like the Cleveland Indians and Atlanta Braves should change but only will when their sponsors threaten to pull support. Money talks, especially when it may walk.

The team has been woefully irrelevant for a generation IMHO.  So at most levels I don't give a sh!t, even though I was an ardent fan until the late 80s or so.  A few name ideas.

  • Ians - as in the Washington Ians (that's an i, not an l)
  • PACers - that's a hard C as in PAC, but Green Bay might object.
  • Carvers - as in George Washington Carver.

I suspect that various school teams pick colors and logos that match pro teams.  Increases the likelihood that fans will have matching hats and jackets without having to go out and design it de novo.  Even pro teams across sports share colors, so Pittsburgh fans wear black and yellow (or is the gold or maize or whatever) for the Pens, Pirates, and Steelers.

Yea, that works in Pittsburgh..  Try it in Denver, Chicago, NY, LA, hell anywhere west...  No workey??

Lots of stuff named Blackhawk. Most notably numerous hiking trails throughout the country. When we lived in Milwaukee for a couple years and I was a Boy Scout, our troop hiked one of the Blackhawk trails in Wisconsin. There is a BSA council “district” named that as well. 
 

http://www.blackhawkscouting.org/

There is also a golf course and technical college named the same. The Blackhawk wars are a small portion of colonial history but to the region it was a big element in the development/settlement of the lands. The names are not prejudicial of which side the Sauk Chief aligned with but rather simply a recognition of the important role those historical events played in the history of that region.

I was 16 or 17 -- hit the ball straight and hard.  That straight part disappeared as I got older.  I broke an honest 100 on a super easy course when I was about 26 or 27, and quit on the spot.  Haven't golfed since.

The Blackhawk course was fun  -- in high school my buddy and I would hit it about 7:30 pm on a weeknight in the summer, and finish the 9 holes just as it got too dark to see.  That was fast golf.

 I pick up my G23 tomorrow. Then I'll be dangerous :lol:......we'll see.

So far as the rest.........I bought a Glock Gen 4 tech mat for tear down and cleaning......some earplugs and ear muffs..........and some gun butter. Putting my range bag together slowly. Not buying one yet, I have a couple maybe suitable bags lying around I'll press into service first. Frankly, not sure what all I'll need yet. My adult son - who followed me onto the job 7 years ago, the same month I retired - bought a G23 at the same place I did and picks it up today. So I reckon he and I will learn together. 

So far as the rest of my world.........like everyone here I'm sure....it feels like ground hog day...."what time is it Elroy!!". Playing golf, working on house projects (since we have two houses now - hers and mine - just 12 miles apart), biking, hiking, and cooking/grilling. Lucky to have Mrs PB to accompany me on the journey. Have had no relapses since the last one and feel pretty good. Sad that the COVIDIOTS are taking us back to square 1 thus wasting the last 4 months but I guess thats how it will be for a while.

Thanks for asking............your world good?

Yep... should have posted the question on the other thread, other than a direct flight to Indy and back a few weeks ago we are hunkered down. We both were tested after returning and both negative. The new reality drones on... shooting is FUN ! ... I miss it

Quote

By Internet standards, this quip about political correctness is nearly ancient. Versions of it dating to 2006 and 2007 are easily located, attributed at least twice to students of Texas A&M University. It surfaced again in a 2012 Townhall column that lauded it while also describing it as an “old Internet joke”. Although the joke’s origins may be murky,
