    DIE Tarheels! Die, Die, DIE Tarheels!

    A few days ago, someone posted how zanny it was for the NBA to recognize its Hispanic fan base by simply putting the word "The" in front of the name on the jersey.

    This got me, EarlJam, to thinking.

    If the Tarheels wanted to recognize their German fan base (perhaps for Heindrik Rodel (sp)) in the same way, it could but the German word for "The" on its jersey's and marketing materials for one day, leaving the name "Tarheels" in English.

    This would read, "Die Tarheels."

    Just a thought. I think they should do this.

    -EarlJam

    P.S. I know that the German language is gender specific, hence the proper grammer may be "Der Tarheels" or "Den Tarheels" but please, do not ruin my amusement by alerting me to this.

    Nope, "die" is the plural for all three genders in German.

    So "Die Tarheels" would be correct?

    Prosecutor: What about that tattoo on your chest? Doesn't it say die Bart die?
    Sideshow Bob: No, that's German

    Ich wünsche nicht, daß Schaden unsere guten Freunde von der Straße unten sich ereignen sollte. Anders als verlieren sie jedes Spiel, das sie für die folgenden Zwanzig Jahre spielen. Aber, ich hoffe, daß sie die langen Leben haben, zum sich an es aller zu erinnern.

    Gehen Sie zur Hölle, Carolina, gehen Sie zur Hölle.

    A thread veering deep into Simpsons territory, and Throaty is nowhere to be found. For shame.
