A Stray Thought on Ethnic Sports Names

We have Fighting Irish. We have Indians, Redskins, and Braves. We have Celtics. We have Spartans. We have Trojans. We have Vikings. We have Aztecs.

So, why are there no Berserkers? Has anyone ever seen or heard of the Berserkers in anything? What a great team name this would be. Go Berserkers! And what about the Goths? Or the Mongols?

For crying out loud, we have a town that has named its school team the Nimrods. Berserkers would have at least been better than that.
