"In 1902 John McGraw manger of the New York Giants referred to the Athletics as the "White Elephants", implying Mack shouldn't be allowed to spend money without supervision. Mack defiantly adopted the White Elephant as the team insignia."<br><br><span class=gensmall>Accepted as answer by Arlo on 31 Jan 2003 09:05 EST.</span>

Not entirely sure where I heard that particular one - most likely in Whiting's You Gotta Have Wa (which, incidentally, is a very entertaining read).
