50 is the new 40!

Wow, our 50th post! Who would have thought our little idea would turn into this?

For our little milestone, I am calling back to Kringlebert's first post regarding the egregious error put upon us by the Colts Indianapolis in both the former RCA Dome and now in the brand-spanking new Lucas Oil Stadium. I have checked the layout for each stadium and here are the results. (Yes, I evidently did have too much time on my hands at work today.)

Team - Left End Zone - Right End Zone (as seen on TV)
1. Jacksonville - Jacksonville Jaguars - Jacksonville Jaguars
2. Tennessee - Titans - Titans
3. Houston - Texans - Texans
4. New England - Patriots - Patriots
5. Miami - Dolphins - Dolphins
6. NY Jets - Jets - Jets
7. Buffalo - Bills - Bills
8. Pittsburgh - None - None
9. Denver - Broncos - Broncos
10. Whale's Vagina - San Diego - Chargers
11. Oakland - Oakland - Raiders
12. Kansas City - Chiefs - Chefs (Great Googly Moogly!)
13. Dallas - Cowboys - Cowboys
14. Philadelphia - Eagles - Eagles
15. NY Giants - Giants - Giants
16. Washington - Redskins - Redskins
17. Green Bay - None - None
18. Detroit - Lions - Lions
19. Minnesota - Vikings - Vikings
20. Chicago - Chicago - Bears
21. Tampa Bay - Buccaneers - Buccaneers
22. Carolina - Carolina - Panthers
23. Atlanta - Falcons - Falcons
24. New Orleans - Saints - Saints
25. San Francisco - 49ers - 49ers
26. St. Louis - Rams - Rams
27. Seattle - Seahawks - Seahawks
28. Arizona - Arizona - Cardinals
29. Baltimore - Ravens - Ravens
30. Cleveland - Browns - Browns
31. Cincinnati - Bengals - Bengals
32. Indianapolis - Colts - Indianapolis!!!!!!!!!

Kringlebert was correct in that every other team in NFL has either the City - Team Name, the Team Name in both end zones or, in the case of Pittsburgh and Green Bay, nothing. It really makes sense to do it that way, don't you think?

All I can think of is that Jim Irsay's suite is on the opposite side of the field and he likes to read Indianapolis Colts from that side of the stadium. No? Maybe they just wanted to different? Or, maybe they thought the TV cameras were going to be on the other side of the stadium?

No, I think it is just plain ol' Hoosier stupidity at work here. We "hicks" ain't into that there grammar stuff. Hell, we couldn't build anything in Indianapolis taller than the monument on Monument Circle until what, the 70's?

Let's fucking get it right, people!

Oh, and by the way, Kringlebert, it's OK to fucking curse on this website...unless you think your mom will be reading this.

Yes, your Henn Mother is reading this...and I might add, Zinglebert, you DO have too much time on your hands! What the fuck?

However, I would like to see the Kevin Cronin psych-out dropped in favor of the Tommy Shaw.

The Tommy Shaw psyche-out definitely has possibilities, but I think it would be better suited for baseball because of those Damn Yankees.

I always thought they were Souless Yankees...these are the Damn Yankees!

Just the use of the "50 is the new 40" title should require a galactic beatdown.

I needed a title with "50" in it and I remembered an early article where Slut had referenced the "50 is the new 40" quote. So you'll have to give us both a "galactic beatdown."

Oh, no--it was a good reference.

Congrats on post 50, btw. I'm thinking the next 50 posts won't take as long.

Oh, in Pittsburg, it's Steelers - Steelers.

I think some of these teams change them up. On MNF last week, Pittsburgh had the lines in one end zone and "Pittsburgh" in the other.

Since Zinglebert made this post (based on Kringlebert's theory), I've tried to pay attention to all of them during games and highlights, and it seems a few of them change. What I've NOT seen is anyone who has the team name on the left and the city on the right--except of course, Colts Indianapolis.
