Indians and Redskins

The Red Sox took Game 5 of the 2007 ALCS in Cleveland. Josh Beckett pitched wonderfully, despite the fact that his ex-girlfriend sang the national anthem and God Bless America. Kevin Youkilis, a Jew, started the scoring onslaught for Boston with an opening inning homerun.

But the Cleveland Indians are still up 3-2 headed back to Fenway. That got me thinking, the Indians team name and logo is a fucking racist abomination. It really makes me ashamed. Let's just get rid of both immediately. I don't know a whole lot about Cleveland, but here are some humble suggestions for alternatives:
Cleveland Dobys (after Larry Doby)
Cleveland Feathers (keep the feather in the racist mascot as the logo)
Cleveland Drums (you can keep the drum in the outfield)
Cleveland Ohioans (sounds funny)
Cleveland Shitty Cities (self-explanatory)

The hometown NFL team, the Washington Redskins (whom I despise) are also fucking unbelievably racist. It's easier to find a replacement for them. Just call them the Skins. Change the logo to one of their old ones. I like the R with the circle around it, but make it an S. Then maybe some of us sports fans with a conscious would be able to sleep at night.
