The San Jose Earthquakes are gone. Please welcome to Major League Soccer the Houston 1836 joining D.C. United, FC Dallas and Real Salt Lake in a retarded attempt to sound European. Congratulations Houston 1836, you are the most European of them all, in more ways that one.
the 1836 chose their name to honor the founding of the city of Houston, otherwise known as the worst year in this nation's history to anybody who has ever visited that cesspool of a city in the middle of summer. Or for that matter, in the middle of winter, spring or fall. I hate Houston with a passion.
It also is a horrible date for a group of people who are expected to comprise a large part of the 1836 fan base, Mexicans. The secession of Texas and the founding of Houston all came at the expense of Mexicans, and it sounds like they haven't really forgotten it. Add the image of Sam Houston leading the charge against the Mexican army to the logo and you can understand why there might not be too many Latinos proudly displaying their love for their new football team.
So in conclusion...
Fake European MLS names = Retarded
Houston 1836 = Retarded and ignorant
The City of Houston = Retarded, ignorant and squalid
Goode Company BBQ = Only redeeming quality
