I'm a Devils fan. I keep hoping Miro Satan (pronounced \"Shah-tan\") will be traded to them, so I can get Satan on the back of my Devil's jersey.
Seriously, though, some New Jersey legislator tried to pass a law requiring the team to change its name because he said it was insulting to Christians.
Watch out for the NBA! The Bulls are just the Golden Calf! Watch out for the NFL! The Rams are Satanic goat heads! Watch out for the MLB! A bunch of guys taking Jesus' name in vain!

At the same time, any attempt to remove racially insulting names from sports teams is just political correctness run amok. Oh, I remember now -- Political correctness is what other people do.

I suppose fundies never have devil's food cake at their potlucks. Or deviled eggs.

And what about those Green Bay (fudge) Packers? You can't play football either.

I think he was joking.

Jezebel's Evil Sister
This has to be a joke (PLEASE!), but I'll play along.
I prefer devils food cake over angels food, like deviled eggs, and have a Dirt Devil broom-vac, so I guess I'm damned. Oh well.

And I'm a Mac fanboy, so I'm all about Darwin and Beastie the UNIX Daemon.

And I would recommend you to have a look at the word fiction in the dictionary.

Although most people imagine New Jersey to be one big expressway lined with cities and refineries, the southern part of the state includes a vast area called the \"Pine Barrens\", a million-plus acre tract of largely uninhabited scrub pine forest in which people have been lost for days. The \"Jersey Devil\" is a mythical creature said to inhabit the Pine Barrens - kind of like a New Jersey version of Bigfoot or Nessie. Reports of sightings date back to colonial times. Has nothing to do with Satan.

The hell you say!

Miroslav Šatan's (note the difference?) last name is pronounced SHAH-tahn, not SAY-tun.
But, as we all know, attention to detail is not a Fundie strong point.

They're not the greatest when it comes to the big picture either.

The Newy Jersey Devil's logo comes from the legend of the Jersey Devil, a creature that terroized the people of colonial New Jersey until it disappeared forever and has nothing to do with Satan. Man you people are ignorant.

Osiris: Now, be fair, there's still sightings of the Jersey Devil every now and then. ;)

The de Paul Blue Demons are gonna get you Johnny.

I'm trying to remember the name of the baseball player who played, and maybe even still does, for the Tampa Bay Devil Rays. A couple of years ago he wanted the name changed because it was not christian.
While we're at it we'd better expunge the word 'phuc' from the Vietnamese language too, it's just so ungodly.

Hey Johnny, the real Jersey Devil
is right behind you!
6/2/2007 1:44:59 PM
Well, that's just silly. I mean, Manchester United are called the Red Devils, and they're not satanic, are they? ... um ... maybe you have a point, actually.
6/2/2007 2:06:27 PM
Not to mention that MLB team named after a bunch of filthy papists-in Spanish to boot!
6/2/2007 3:12:16 PM
Of course he hates devils.
He's obviously a Tanar'ri worshipper, and can't stand the sight of those filthy Baatezu.
hey, just because you dislike 'devils', doesn't mean you're not as bad or worse yourself. Plenty of folks hate competition.

I had hoped this was a joke or a troll. Then I saw the site it came from. *sigh*

Hey pal! Back off the NHL, Lord Stanley is the only lord I pray to. \"Lord Stanley please deliver unto the Red Wings your great cup, so that we may drinketh from it once more.\"
