TODAY’S COOL-NAMED SPORTS TEAM – THE UNIVERSITY OF THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA

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.

  1. Added, I really like your blog and I don’t usually like sports but you make it fun! 🙂

    Great blog here and I think the Firebirds are awesome!

  3. I could not resist commenting. Well written!

  4. Heya i’m for the first time here. I came across this board and I find It really useful
    & it helped me out much. I hope to give something back and aid others like you aided me.

  5. Robert, they vary. It’s up into the authors. Many with the letters coming up are handwritten, or hand-notated, it’s about half and half. Though most of your first letters were typed. The fourth letter was a comic.

  6. Nobody cares about these shitty schools.

  7. My dream retirement would involve a nice log cabin in the mountains. Who needs a beach?

  8. Firebirds are the coolest team name ever

    Hey would you mind letting me know which webhost you’re using?
    I’ve loaded your blog in 3 completely different internet browsers
    and I must say this blog loads a lot faster then most.
    Can you suggest a good web hosting provider at a reasonable price?

    Kudos, I appreciate it!
