Tigers & Lions & Bears

Oh My!

While I'm on the Tiger jag, let me note that aside from the plethora of things called/labeled/titled "Tiger", there seems to be an overabundance of bands that have "Wolf" or "Bear" in their moniker.  Has no one learned anything from the humiliation that is the Roughriders, version 1 and version 2?  (Aside:  WP, please don't make the fine point that the names are different as it's the Saskatchewan Roughriders and the Ottawa Rough Riders..i.e., ONE word v. TWO words!  I'm still perplexed about how Toronto gets away with their hocky team mis-spelling  Maple Leafs!
There are many, many, mnay other animals out there that would love to be included in a band's name.  What of the Hedgehog?  there must be some R & R music that is simultaneously sweet and prickly?

Jim Allen over @ limewire has saved me the trouble of research and linking.  This topic has been getting his goat since March of last year.
Mr. Allen was kind.  Over at podington bear the list goes on and on.

It was alleviating to know bears were not driving only me batty.


Re: Leafs and Roughriders, the rest of the country would tell you these trademarked linguistic violations are just another instance of Central Canadian (specifically, Toronto) assumed entitlement. I could care. So far as I'm concerned, these spelling mistakes offer plain evidence of the meagre collective intelligence devoted to the nation's pro-sports enterprises.
