My son claims this is not the reason but I'm so paranoid about these douchebags that I'd believe anything.

Lol, what a perfect example of the unthinking, blind hatred and fear of the bigots at DU. I feel sorry for its kid, though.

And before they were called the New Orleans Saints they were known as the New Orlean's Notorious Satanic Rappers.

they went from being permanent last place losers to being 1 game away from the World Series. It's pretty obvious that God has rewarded the team for excising Satan, the Prince of Darkness, from their jerseys. Or it could just be that several years of good scouting, developing the farm system, and shrewd trades have finally paid off. Who knows. Too bad the Mets don't have some kind of satanic reference they could also remove in the hope of reaping a similar reward.


:D ROFL!! :D:D

I wonder what his opinion is of teams that have changed their names from Indian names.

Dont you go messing with the Chiefs, sucky though they may be. I can remember going to Arrowhead and seeing folks with paper bags on their heads. :)

The Rays have done wholesale changes every season for about the last three years. I hated the green last season.

That right FG. I've still got one of the old T-shirts.

Doesn't fit any more. Must've shrunk.:confused:

Much like the teams named after Indians were renamed because of those freaky Native American Whackos.:rolleyes:

I guess it could have been, but no that was in the late 70's. But now I won't root for them until they get rid of Herm Edwards, and no lids its not because he is black, its because he is a suck ass coach, much in the same way obama is a suck ass candidate.

If "conservative fundy freaks" had that much power, then why are there still the Duke Blue Devils and the Arizona State Sun Devils?

Morons, the whole lot of them. :rolleyes:
