What do you guys think of Chief Wahoo, the Cleveland Indians mascot?
My mother HATES that. (We're part Cherokee.) She doesn't mind the Indians name, but Wahoo has got to go, in her opinion.
Fortunately she lives in Detroit...but I live in Ohio and when she comes to visit it inevitably comes up. I always tease her with, "Now why don't
you buy your grandson this Cleveland Indians outfit?"
Me, I'm not sure I really care...but I can't help but think, if someone had, say, the Black Boys as a team and their mascot was a black guy looking
every bit the idiot Chief Wahoo looks, you'd have Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and whoever else having an absolute hissy fit.
