Pop Quiz: Name That Team

Welcome to an exciting new weekly feature here on Slimbolala, "Pop-Quizzes-With-Not-Particularly-Incisive-Answers-That-Reveal-Absolutely-Nothing-About-the-Deeper-Truths-of-Human-Nature Friday." Enjoy:

This guy walks past the coffice several times a day:

He looks like he got kicked out of the Rolling Stones back in the Sixties because even Keith Richards thought he was doing too many drugs. But in odd contrast to his washed-up-rocker chic, he always wears a sweatshirt emblazoned with the logo of a particular NFL team.

Pop quiz: Which team? I'll give you a hint: it's pretty random (read, "not the Saints"). As always, there is only one right answer and many, many wrong answers. You'll probably get it wrong, but then life is rarely more than a series of misguided failures. Why should this be any different?

Good luck.

  4. Mmm, interesting. Not quite there yet, but somehow in the ballpark. Are there certain teams that are more "rock and roll" than others? This must certainly be the case, but what are the criteria?

    cleveland browns

    Baltimore Ravens.

  7. oh i get it -- the raiders

  8. Ding! Ding! Ding! The Steelers! Mid-sized, post-industrial, rust-belt cities, bad hair, and rock-n-roll. Somehow just so right together.

    Well done, Nik. As your reward, next time the guy walks by, I'm going to mug him, steal the shirt, and give it to you. Yummy!

  9. Scrumptious! I'll sleep with it every night until the smells fades to nothing...and then I will burn it and spread it's ashes over a special place where the spirit of it can soar on forever, alighting on this one or that one...

    I love guessing games!

  10. He looks like Howard Stern!
