Post Re: Fuck you larry
Two points of clarification:

They were initially named 1836 after the year HOUSTON was founded (not Texas Independence). It was changed because 1836 was also the year of Texas Independence (which happened to have a large volume of violence on Mexico, which apparently didn't sit too well with the hispanic community in Houston).

However, in the grand scheme of the argument run faster is making, it's totally minor, though it does explain why they were prompted to change it.

The second point is why they changed it. It was supposedly dual purpose as it gave a nod to the team from the United Soccer League from the mid 80's, but also because it represented energy and Houston is the energy capital of the world.

Full disclosure though: They also noted the added benefit of picking traditional names, as Dynamo was pretty popular it seems in the eastern Europe countries like was noted above.

Note: i found this on the MLS website (link below) and don't know anything about soccer.

Side note: It was Luck who was in charge when the 1836 name was put forth.

Now that Ollie is out of town, look for a big season from Andrew.

Everything Oliver Luck touches turns to shit.


I have severe reservations that Luck will ever see a football field again, and that is sad for the football world.

This Oliver Luck thing needs to move to a different thread. You're making him out to be worse than Teis. That is unacceptable.

Here, here! If there's one thing that binds us....it's that Larry is an intolerable, incompetent, short-sighted, bare-minimum boob.
