A Chick by any other name

"Indians" has been the name of the minor league baseball team here for so long I suppose those who might have a problem with that have either thrown up their hands and moved on or satisfied themselves that the team certainly means no disrespect.

Because I don't hear a lot of complaining about it.

But then I guess you can get used to things.

I once lived in a city where the AA minor league baseball team was called the Chicks, after the Chickasaw tribe. That has changed. The team is now AAA and called the Redbirds or something like that.

You can decide for yourself which is more fun to say.
