No More Indians in Cleveland?

So how do you feel about this?  The Cleveland baseball team had the nickname “Indians” for over 100 years; and there is a reason now to eliminate the name?  

Is it now the Guardians for Guardian Insurance?  Did Guardian pay for naming rights?  A more appropriate name would be the Cleveland Progressives (did you catch the double entendre? Progressive Insurance is big in Cleveland, and only a fricking leftist progressive would worry about calling a team the “Indians”)

Any American Indian should be honored to be recognized by having a major sports team use your ethnicity as the team’s nickname.   If they called them the Cleveland Jews or Cleveland Israelis, I know that I would feel honored.
