Great work, California!

The Golden State has become the first in the nation to completely ban the use of 'Redskins' as a mascot for any public school sports team, with a bill signed into law by Governor Jerry Brown (pictured above) on Sunday.

The ban comes in direct relation to the ongoing controversy surrounding the NFL's Washington Redskins, and that team's refusal to change their mascot, which Native American advocacy groups and allies have continually said is racist and cruel.

With California's ban, the state joins communities — like Houston, Texas and Madison, Wisconsin — in ridding themselves of the racially insensitive term in the public realm surrounding sports and mascots.

California's bill, Assembly Bill 30, also known as the California Racial Mascots Act, prohibits public schools from using 'Redskins' for athletic mascots or nicknames beginning on January 1, 2017.

Introducing The 2012 London Olympic Mascots

Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueZportz


Alright, so, there is not a lot to be said here.

These are the official mascots for the upcoming 2012 Olympics in London.

Their names are Wenlock and Mandeville.

The "characters" were named after the birthplace of the Paralympic Games, Stoke Mandeville hospital in Buckinghamshire and the village of Much Wenlock in Shropshire, which hosted a precursor to the modern Olympic Games in the 19th century.

We're pretty sure they are metallic sperm.

Anyone else got any ideas?
