Sports Teams' Insensitive Names

I am officially requesting that the name of the Minnesota Vikings be changed because it ridicules and stereotypes the Norwegians that came to the United States and settled in the upper Midwest.

From Wikipedia: "Current popular representations of the Vikings are typically based on cultural clichés and stereotypes, complicating modern appreciation of the Viking legacy. These representations are rarely accurate - for example, there is no evidence that they wore horned helmets, a costume element that first appeared in Wagnerian opera."
