Happy Columbus Day

Remember, the holiday is not about Columbus himself, but rather the spirit of all the explorers who established our great land to be free of the tyranny of soccer. For that, we should all celebrate.

Columbia, Maryland weeps at your humor.

Columbia, Missouri is still too busy bitching about dirty play by the Huskers to care.

Columbus, Ohio is actually a shitty town.

I can't prove it, but I suspect Columbia, Maryland, is actually only secondarily named after Columbus, in that its name derives more from its intended relationship with the District of Columbia, which is named after Columbus.

Here is a list of places named after Columbus.

Sweet! You took a pro-Michigan stance.

I'm usually driven to guilt on Columbus Day for my ethnic associations with those that forced conversions, spread disease and enslaved the natives.

But thanks to you, I can now at least take some solace in the fact that this "city on the hill" remains mostly free of that blight.
