Big Picture Categories: Team names that don't end in "S"
King's Cup might be the best drinking game out there. Everyone has their own version, there's ample drinking and sometimes -- on a few lucky occasions -- hot chicks end up naked. One of the best "games" in King's Cup is Categories, which often is represented by the Jack card. In Categories, the person who draws the card says a category (fast food joints, baseball stadiums, etc.) and everyone must go around the circle naming one until somebody stumbles. When that person fucks up, they drink. Make sense? Good.
Just about everywhere you turn in sports, you're going to find a "Wildcats," "Tigers" or "Bears." But not too many teams -- at least in professional sports -- have nicknames that don't end in an "S."
Today's category then will be naming those teams that don't have an "S" at the end. Since there are a lot of these, let's keep them to colleges and U.S. leagues (MLB, NFL, NBA, NHL, MLS all count -- the WNBA does not. Does it ever?). We'll start and you guys continue in the comments. You can go again after every five comments. First person to blow it has to ask a random member of the Sioux tribe if they have a drinking problem.
We'll start things off with one of our favorite collegiate names: the North Dakota Fighting Sioux.
All right, folks. Get freaky in the comments.
