UNIVERSITY OF THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA FIREBIRDS
Location: Washington, DC
Division: NCAA Division 2
Conference Affiliation: Independent
Major sports: basketball, soccer, volleyball, tennis
Comment: The NAIA has the Sunbirds, D2 has the Firebirds! It seems odd that a city known for
pompous blowhards and self-seeking demagogues of both parties would have a university that features such a cool nickname for their sports teams. In fact, Firebirds is a much more memorable nickname than Redskins, Wizards, Capitals and Nationals.
