Hva’ ska’ Ni Ha?
Lutefisk and lefse
Yah! Yah! Yah!”
Those ruffians! Anyway, eventually the college embraced the name despite that fact that there was very little corn around Moorehead, Minnesota at the time the nickname was first used. Thankfully they chose this unique and interesting name over Vikings and Lutherans and gave us one of the most pissed off pieces of corn in the history of sports.
Although, personally, I think they should give some thought about going with the historical Lutefiskers over Cobbers, but I once named my fantasy baseball team the Ballard Fightin’ Lutefisk, so it’s hard to say that I’m impartial.
UPDATE – Ok, I want to apologize. Two straight posts with references to my fantasy team names is really, really nerdy and inexcusable.
