San Francisco 49ers owner John York is an idiot. And not just your average mush-for-brains empty suit with a golden parachute kind of idiot. No, York is the extra special kind of dipshit who can literally destroy everything he is around on the sheer weight of his own stupidity. If this guy were any dumber he'd have a Bush cabinet appointment or an AM radio talk show.
But, like the Democratic Party, we can benefit from the meddling of a walking clusterfuck. Looks like the 49ers will be moving down to our neck of the woods in Santa Clara. Construction won't be finished until 2012, and they'll be lucky to get it done by then.
We've been wanting a major sports team in the Silicon Valley for years, and no, hockey doesn't count.
So they'll keep the name San Francisco 49ers, but other than all that history, why stay nostalgic? New locale demands a new name. Let's get this ball rolling with a few suggestions:
Santa Clara Hackers
Santa Clara Net Raiders
Santa Clara Programmers
Santa Clara Sex-Starved Geeks
Santa Clara Suburbanists (Chevy Suburban enthusiasts)
Santa Clara Suburbanites (dwellers of suburbs)
Silicon Valley Adventurous Capitalists
Silicon Valley Out of the Boxers
Silicon Valley Chips
Silicon Valley Mac Attack
Silicon Valley Yahooligans
Silicon Valley Scalable Solutions
...please, any other suggestions?
