Florida Marlins' Team name?

Postby Krunk City King$ » Fri Jun 24, 2005 6:51 pm

I am not sure if this has been brought up before. But I heard that some guys on Atlanta radio talking about the Florida Marlins' team name.

They said the the plural for Marlin is Marlin...that is without the "s."

So the word Marlins is not correct.

Stanford's team name isn't after the bird 'cardinal' but after the color 'cardinal'.

:-? I don't get why it isn't plural then if the Cincinnati Reds pluralize their team name, which is a color; Stanford doesn't pluralize their team name. Eh, who cares? Stanford sucks. Go UCSB!

Wait another couple weeks, and it'll be Los Angeles Marlins of Florida... :-D

(And yeah, It's Marlins with the S.)
