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.
