Pan-thors!

Here’s a great piece of sports writing.

I knew the Panthers would win when I realized I have a meeting at 7 p.m. Sunday. The game starts at 6:30.

Back in the day, there was a man in section 320 of Eriksson Stadium who would turn to one side and yell “PAN!” then to the other side and yell “THORS!” He obviously was a linguist (despite what his red neck and beer belly would usually connote), like my father, who says Flee-Boos would be the best name for a team, because those vowel sounds carry farthest. The awful “er” sound isn’t very glamorous.

Go, Panthers!

    Tell Banjo that there’s an exceedingly popular female soccer team from New South Wales known as the Sheeroos. Not exactly Flee-Boos, but close enough.
