Borders the Bronx
Yes it's Ghetto, but has come up. Both rich and average class folks live there. Most hated on city in Westchester County, and often imitiated..never duplicated. Yonkers, New Rochelle,etc can complain but MV has its history. If Mt. Vernon had as much economic support and land as the other cities, it would be even better!
Person 1: "I'm from Mount Vernon"
Person 2: "Where is it located?"
Person 3: "In Westchester...Next to the Bronx, New Rochelle & Yonkers"
- Mount Vernon Boys' Basketball Team: Successful State Champions several times in a row
- Mount Vernon High School students accepted in top schools such as NYU,Columbia University, Cornell University, UPenn, Princeton, Yale,etc often...so the education must be decent here.
Formerly the Montreal Expos, and because their fans never came to their games, they moved to the nations capital. Things have fared better than most people thought. Chad Cordero led the MLB in saves. They are also the greatest team in baseball.
The Nationals will win the East in 2006.
1. A knight on King Arthur's round table, they are noble and brave champions who only want to protect people
2. dumbass kids on World of Warcraft that wanted to be warriors that could heal. In PvP combat they typically just stall until a real class comes along, becuase by then the opponent is usually out of mana.
1. Paladins are holy knights of honor who would never run away from a fight
2. Shield and Hearth!
Most successful team in baseball over the first ~40 years of the sport's existence (up to 1918). Subsequently sold their star player (Babe Ruth) to the Yankees so that their owner could finance a Broadway musical, and then performed poorly for the next twenty-odd years while the Yankees began to surpass them in terms of on-field success.more...
Experienced something of a resurgence in the 1940s, but could never win a world championship. Were pretty dire/unpopular throughout the 1950s and 1960s, but then came out of nowhere in 1967 to reach the World Series, losing in 7 games to the St. Louis Cardinals. Suddenly became wildly popular in Boston and throughout New England. Still couldn't win a world championship, but came close in 1975, and then agonizingly, skull-crushingly close in 1986.
Failure to win world championship in 1986 spawned the creation of a moronic fiction known as "The Curse of the Bambino", which attributed the Red Sox' decades-old habit of stumbling at the final hurdle to a hex put on them from the Afterlife by Babe Ruth, presumably because he was angry that the team sold him way back when. (In reality, their inability to win the big one could be ascribed to a combination of piss-poor management and being on the wrong end of random chance at the worst possible times.)
Anyway, the media seized on "The Curse", beating Red Sox fans to death with it throughout the late '80s and beyond. National TV broadcasts of Red Sox games were filled with forced, gratuitou...
Jealous, bitter North London club that lost their final match of 05/06 season and the race for fourth to the mighty Arsenal when they underestimated a little bubble blowing club called West Ham. So jealous of their London betters were the Spuds that they claimed they were poisoned by the lasagne at the Grosvenor Square Hotel when really it was dirty Carrick gave them all gastro-enteritis. How we can never know for sure but it may have been due to his tendency to bend over.
Trottenham Hotsquirts: We were cheated! It was the lasagne at the posh hotel we stayed at made us sick (even though it was a local derby)
FA: Fuck off! You're out of the UEFA Cup in the first round instead of the Champions League next season.
Spuds: Not fair, not fair!
Founded in 1966 as a member of the AFL, the Dolphins established themselves as a great franchise by hiring Don Shula as coach in 1970- he would lead the team until 1995! Miami had 7 playoff berths in the 1970s, making the Super Bowl 3 straight times from 1971-73. They won 2 of these titles, taking Super Bowls VI and VII. On their way to the Super Bowl VI crown, Miami became the only team in NFL history to go undefeated at 17-0. An urban legend is that members of the '72 Dolphins celebrate a toast each year when the last undefeated team loses. Lost the Super Bowl in 1982 and picked up the legendary Dan Marino as quarterback the next season. Marino led the Dolphins to a loss in the Super Bowl in 1984 and to 10 playoff berths in his career which lasted until 1999. However, the league's all time leading passer never won a championship. Have not made the playoffs since 2001, just barely missing them in 2002 and 2003.
"The Miami Dolphins win a low scoring game against Washington. They are 17-0 and champions of the National Football League."
The top prize in world club football. The first team to win the trophy from the english-speaking world was the mighty Glasgow Celtic in 1967. Fortunately the trophy has never been sullied by ending up in the hands of the bigots at Glasgow Rangers, something which consumes them everyday.
As the hun awoke from his slumber the same thing came to him that had come every morning. The image of the smart successful Celtic fan whispering:
European Cup winners: Your dream, our reality.
