All right, let's try to keep this PG-13 rated (or milder), or use subtle asterisks or other such number-shift symbols. What do you like to call opposing teams that you don't have to necessarily hate, but have to give them goofy to downright rude nicknames nevertheless?
And don't anyone get too defensive about these nicknames when it's about your team. It's all in fun, no harm intended. I grin when someone mentions the "Jail Blazers", because, well, it was pretty much true at one point. So let's just shake hands, and come out swinging. And buy each other drinks afterwards.
Let the fur fly!
