The Pollen Bowl?
They're looking for a new name for the annual football game between Oregon and Oregon State. Apparently the "Civil War" moniker is out, because we need to forget that the actual Civil War ever happened.
Plus, it's such a violent name. Football is not a "war," people. Get it straight: It's young people inflicting brain damage on each other for everyone's entertainment.
So what should the new name be? Anybody got any suggestions?
I hope they get this resolved quickly, so that we can turn to renaming the teams as well. Ducks, Beavers – how degrading to the animals.
