  •  The return of Chief Knockahoma (4+ / 0-)

    he Atlanta Braves' batting practice cap (for 2013) features the return of the "screaming savage" that served as part of the Atlanta's logo from 1967 to 1989. The mohawked image first made an appearance in 1954 during the Braves' Milwaukee days.

      look like a screaming face rather a "laughing so hard I could pass out" face. The eyes don't look "angry" to me. But, still, haven't we gotten past using Native American mascots? Why not an image of a US soldier, a firefighter, a cop. People who are brave on a daily basis.

      What's wrong with America? I'll tell you. Everything Romney said was pre-chewed wads of cud from Republicans from the last 30 years and yet he managed thru a combination of racism and selling the (false) hope of riches to get 47% of the national vote.

      along with that annoying "tomahawk chop" chant the home fans gleefully perform. (My spouse and I do a version here, with a certain finger extended, when we see it on TV.)
