Default dolphins...Dolphins...DOLPHINS!

One of the finest examples of analytical journalism I've ever witnessed for a game prediction.

Broncos Dolphins

This is Tim Tebow's homecoming

He's from Florida

A lot of Florida fans down there

He's playing the Miami Dolphins

The Miami Dolphins don't look that good

This is a pride game

I'm going with the Dolphins

The Dolphins get their first win

21-7 (lulz?)

DOLPHINS!

That segment looked like a comedy skit where someone inflated Tracy Morgan to capacity with a bike pump and then he made fun of football commentators.

Colts. A baby horse? Really? What is a Seahawk? A Saint will pray for me. A Texan?...How scary is a Titan or a Giant, really? In both cases something 1/100th their size either knocked them off a beanstalk or sliced them to pieces with a giant scythe. A bill? Give me a .50 cal hunting rifle and I can pile up 3 million of those bastards on the plains making a Chief of the Redskins shed a tear.

Actually if a dolphin wanted to, and you were in the water with it, could easily ram you and kill you with a couple sorties, maybe even one if it nailed you in the head.

Well technically, Orcas, the killer whales are dolphins, not whales and those b****es could eat ya. But really would ya pay to go see the Miami Shamus? The typical ones we think of though, Dolphins, not intimidating, but they are known to be smart and can be protective so maybe that's why. Plus they don't really have any negatives associated with them per se.

What I don't get is why is there no team called the Sharks in the NFL? Sharks are scary as crap. I mean San Diego Chargers, why not San Diego Sharks?

Of course if we wanted really scary, there would be teams with monikers involving Lorena Bobbitt, the Yo Mama in laws, The Taxmen and the Lawyers (though sharks might cover that just as well).

The Washington IRS would be so scary that nobody would show up at the games.

The NYC Ambulance Chasers would probably annoy the heck out of the fans.

What about the Detroit DMV?

Why the San Diego Chargers? You've got me.

There's no lightning here to speak of. Maybe the San Onofre nuclear plant?

What a stupid name.

My opinion of NFL team names, by division:

NFC North

Bears: Lazy, spend half the year asleep in a cave. Other half they spend pooing out a hair plug and finding more **** to eat.

Packers: Of fudge? Sardines? Fine Cheeses? Sad commentary on Wisconsin.

Vikings: Terrified the world for 300 years but got beat down by Christians. Lame.

Lions: King of the jungle my ass. Lazy cat that is more prone to poaching meals hyenas catch. Thats right. The hyena does all the work.

NFC South:

Bucs: With Captain Jack Sparrow, how can you go wrong? Nice eyeliner, ladies.

Saints: Cool to be close to God...but I am not wary of a saint. They usually become saints by dying horribly.

Falcons: A gay hawk.

Panthers: Really? That many panthers in the Appalachians?

NFC East:

Cowboys: Missing a mountain in wyoming. Just saying. And how is Dallas "east"?

Redskins: It would be more accurate to say bronze skinned. I suppose it does not have the same ring to it.

Eagles: Can be cool. But who wants to deal with something this high maintenance?

Giants: Die horrible deaths. Beanstalks or Viking Gods kick their ass on a regular basis.

NFC West:

49ers: Celebrating an event 162 years in the past. That gold has lost its glitter.

Cardinals: No matter how hard you try, you can not make a cardinal look mean.

Seahawks: Falcon's brother with beachfront property.

Rams: Is St Louis west? Are their any rams in Missouri?

AFC East:

Bills: Animal so dumb a man was made famous for hunting them.

Patriots: An abstract idea boiled down to look like Tom Brady.

Jets: Jets of...hot air? Jetstream? Weapon of war? Cybils of the NFL.

Dolphins: An animal with a butthole on top of its head. Sure, they breathe out of it but still...its gross.

AFC North:

Steelers: Name of a 70s gay bar. I kid you not.

Browns: Color indicitive of the way the team plays and the city they play in.

Ravens: Made famous by a man on drugs who wrote about a bad ether trip. Nevermore indeed.

Bengals: No tigers in the ohio river valley. And whats with all the cat teams? Bunch of pussies.

AFC South:

Colts: A baby horse. It kills with cuteness.

Titans: Greek gods kicked their ass. Should have been the Tennesee Olympians.

Texans: Sharing a mountain in WY with the Cowboys. Gone fishing.

Jaguars: About as cool as a seahawk.

AFC West

Chiefs: Of mediocrity. The last time they mattered my mother was 15. The last time they won a playoff game I was 12.

Chargers: Their mascot is sponge bob square pants pedobear like uncle.

Raiders: Not as cool as Captain Jack Sparrow. Think Dustin Hoffman's Hook.

Broncos: An imperfectly broken range horse. Totaly kickass, but moody and prone to fits of insanity.

Dolphins have been known to kill sharks from time to time. A cardinal is far less intimidating than a dolphin.

"A war horse" is not what the Chargers name denotes; look at their logo; it's a bolt of electricity.

Yes, killer whales are dolphins afterall. So, dolphins actually kill great white sharks.



Also, bottle nose dolphins are known to attack and injure people.
