So, we got this Pre-season NHL game coming up next week:

Carolina at Tampa Bay, 7:30 p.m.

Are they going to rename their team for one night?

They could move back to Hartford and call themselves the Whalers if that makes you happy. It would make me happy, they had the best logo in all of professional sports.

In hindsight, or even when it's happening.

/dumb thing to be offended by
//does the U need to rename its sports teams, lest it outrage the locals?

Last week called: they want their story back.

Weird, i was thinking about this the other day...it is a popular song in sporting events...and then another inappropriate idea popped in my head, hold music for suicide hotline playing "Jump" by Van Halen.

Because many people have its had their lives devastated. Someone with a small degree of empathy might think it makes sense to not play that song when a large number of people from the affected area are likely to be watching for some escape.

Again?  I mean, okay fool me once shame on you but fool me twice and the Enterprise is a garbage scow

They play that song all the time. Have for years. The song is 40 years old.
 It has literally nothing to do with any current event, especially since it's at a baseball game in Atlanta.
It takes 3 stupid leaps to get from there to being offended.
How can you get through life being upset that easily?
Then again, no one is actually offended. iI's purely theoretical. And it's a waste of farking time.

Reminds me of the time that Fark felt empathy for the victims of a crisis.  I can't think of one.  Le obnoxious smileyface. :^)

If there is no outrage, we will manufacture it.  This country (world) is beyond the pale.  Worse, there is no hope.  None.  Zero.

/sorry if I just outraged palefaces.

There's plenty of empathy for the victims of a crisis. But the people attending a sport event being subjected to a song on the PA are not victims.

/unless the song is by Pearl Jam

No word if "Ride the Wild Wind" by Queen would be better?
