I just came across this ironic piece of information. George Mason University, nicknamed the George Mason Patriots was named after George Mason, one of the three delegates who refused to sign the U.S. Constitution. What a patriot!

- To quote the great movie "Baseketball"..."Soon it was commonplace for entire teams to change cities in search of greater profits. The Minneapolis Lakers moved to Los Angeles where there are no lakes. The Oilers moved to Tennessee where there is no oil. The Jazz moved to Salt Lake City where they don't allow music. The Grizzlies moved to Memphis where there aren't any Grizzlies."
