    wait a minute... you're telling me that the Broncos might not be the only team named after a type of horse in our division??? I'm not sure what to do with this information, or if I should do anything with it at all.

    Short term, this might make some sense, but long term...? Well, hasn't LA already proved to have as many, if not more, fickle and fair-weather fans than SD and less than worthy to host a team after letting two go?

    It's a shame to see them go out the way they are.

    Some say they got it from a business of the team's original owner, Barron Hilton, who owned the Carte Blanche credit card company and who, by the way, was the second son of Conrad Hilton, founder of Hilton Hotels. Credit card were new then and it helped promote them. If true it sure worked.(Note there are other theories as well) war horse, or USC fan cheer" Charge".

    Not quite as exciting as the History of the Washington Generals, but close.
