The Second Side

I could put something really witty here if I wanted.

Go Fighting Pigeons!

If you get a chuckle out of runaway P.C. silliness, you'll love this column about the recent NCAA ban on mascots that are "hostile and abusive" to Indians. The Florida State Seminoles cannot display their nickname or mascot at any postseason tournament; this despite the recent unanimous vote by the Seminole Tribal Council to support Florida State's use of the name.
The Illinois Fighting Illini may wear uniforms that say "Illinois," but not "Illini." The NCAA executive committee is apparently blissfully unaware that "Illinois" is French for "Illini." This would be the same NCAA that is headquartered in Indianapolis, Indiana. It gets even better . . .

What's funny about this, is the fact, that in another article, when everyone was throwing a fit about the Seminoles name, a number of Native Americans were interviewed and asked if they found the name offensive. 90% of them said no.....

They don't care..why should Whitey....

I'm not sure what this says about me, but when I first glanced at this subject heading I saw the words: "Go Fucking Pigeons!"

It's a good thing I didn't put a comma in. You might've seen "Go, Fucking Pigeons" or "Go Fucking, Pigeons."
Don't worry. This blog is for grown up people and monkeys.

Either way, the imagery was startling and disturbing.

(Thank Goodness for R rated blogs.)
