Professional sports may never be the same after 2020. Not because of COVID, but because all the names and logos are changing! First, The Washington [REDACTED] changed their name to The Washington Football Team. It was a big win for progress. It was a big win for passive-aggressively agreeing to change. It was also a big loss for people who think it’s the 1890s.
Next up, my hometown. The beautiful Cleveland, Ohio. The Cleveland Indians recently got rid of their old logo, and now they’re officially changing their name. If they were really being fair, they’d change the logo to a map depicting how far off Columbus was from India when he landed in the Americas. I’m sure some agree. Some don’t. Including the current President of the United States. He tweeted this:
