It doesn’t seem like the Washington Racial Slurs will become enlightened anytime soon. And we can’t even fathom how Scappoose High School in Oregon — Oregon! A state where they don’t even seem to care that OSU supporters are known as Beaver Believers! — is still managing to get away with this mascot.
But credit to the Cleveland Indians, who have at least initiated an online survey to ticket buyers about whether good ol’ Chief Wahoo should finally go.
Even more credit to the fine citizens of El Paso, and the San Diego Padres organization, for naming their newly relocated AAA farm team… the El Paso Chihuahuas!
The only people this could possibly offend are owners of small dogs, and those people tend to be so annoyingly yappy that we just don’t care what they say. We can’t wait for Paris Hilton Night at El Paso’s ballpark, and we’re hoping that seats on the Taco Bell Home Run Porch aren’t sold out yet.
[Note: since I'm still a fan of the Lansing Lugnuts, and Paul roots for the Lehigh Valley IronPigs, we're looking for a BTBNL blogger or supporter to officially adopt the Chihuahuas as their team. And also to make sure they get fed and taken outside every day.]
