The University of North Dakota has been banned by the NCAA from calling its sports teams by the nickname, "Fighting Sioux".

Tests my gag reflex, but that's just me and I hope lots of others.

But it also leaves me wondering . . .

How is it that the Fighting Irish are acceptable?

And indeed, if we recall the Johnny Cash song, why do the bien pensants in North Dakota - oh yeah, they have them there, too - not change the nickname to . . .

The Fighting (Boy Named) Sue?

Update:

Excuse me, please, for so crudely wondering . . .

So who's fighting Sue, anyway?

And why?

Are you sure she's fighting anyone?

Really?

Okay . . .

So sue me.
