Rainbow connection

We were discussing the name of the University of Hawaii athletic teams -- whether they'd dropped the uber-charming "Rainbow" part of their name due to the rainbow's association with homosexuality.

I think of Hawaii as the ultimate "live and let live" state, so was kind of disappointed to learn that yes, the football team thought it was an issue, so they're just the Warriors (along with the golf and volleyball teams, macho sports, all...).

Most teams remain the Rainbow Warriors, but I love that the baseball team is just the Rainbows. Awesome name.
