What Should Be the Name of the Mascot at George M. Steinbrenner High School?

George M. Steinbrenner High School will open up its doors in August to welcome about 1,500 students. The school doesn't have a mascot, school colors, or a school motto. Hmm...

How about...

Mascot: Hank Steinbrenner or a drunk Billy Martin

School Colors: Navy blue and white

School Motto: "Winning is the most important thing in life, after breathing. Breathing first, winning next." —The Boss

There will be many different opinions on these topics. It’s really funny how the Yankees can dominate talk in Florida, when the team doesn’t even play there. Well, they play in Tampa for Spring Training, but the Rays aren’t getting enough respect. Actually, who cares?

School officials say they may hold a vote with the future students of the school. That’s pretty cool. I wish my high school was named after the owner of the Yankees.

I like the names the ‘Duk came up with...

My personal suggestions would be either the Mini-Bosses, the Costanzas, or the Fat Toads. And before everyone starts going on about how much I hate the Yankees, here are a few more serious proposals: the Bombers, the Pinstripes, or the Champs. 


Bernie’s back…sort of / Alex should make noise on field, not off / Melky ‘09

A-Rod, Canseco, & Ripper / Girardi expresses three choice in Teixeira

Williams, a Venerated Yankee, Looks Back and Ahead to the Classic

Giambi reports to A’s, applauds A-Rod’s candor / Bernie would be a fit in Queens
