A candid, no holds barred look at those screwy college nicknames. You know the ones. Hoyas, Tar Heels. Yeah. Those ones.

Here's another one that bothers me. The Stanford Cardinal. It has been beaten into our heads that they are not "cardinals" the bird, but rather "cardinal" the color. Fine.

This has got to be one of the dumbest mascots in the history of mascots. A tree. It's not threatening, it's not dangerous or fast. It can't even move! At least horn frogs have horns (sort of) and can hop around. At least the Green Wave gives you a sense of motion and power. A tree? Plus, cardinal the color is red. The tree is green. Huh? Leave it to those brainiacs at Stanford to come up with that!
