    Philly team to be named “Union.” As in, Philadelphia Union. (Will there or will there not be a “the” in front? Who knows?) Good color – navy and gold – and their crest(s) look good. They even have a Latin phrase – Vignite aut Perite – “Join or Die.” Kinda an odd demand for Philly to make; isn’t it a lose-lose when your options are Philly or death?

  2. Mike Georger

    That’s jungite aut perite, vignite would mean awake or die … which would still be pretty cool.

    Where’s your French literature education now bitch!

  3. Mike Georger

    Whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa. Hold on a minute. I’ve been trying to figure out this thing and it just struck me, the letters ‘J’ and ‘U’ didn’t exist in the Latin alphabet. What the f**k is going on here? Why not throw in a ‘W’ for good measure?

    Philadelphia Phail.

    Also, before I forget …

    Sanskrit. You’re majoring in a 5000 year-old dead language? Get out of my room.

  5. EbullientFatalist

    Vignite doesn’t even seem to mean “awake” in Latin. In fact, I can’t find a definition of it. I just suck at quasi-transliteration.

    Leave my French lit minor alone!

  6. EbullientFatalist

    PCU. Classic.

    And look, I can’t even defend that minor – I figured I could use it in conversation during parties, but then I realized I was living in NC or Florida, and there wouldn’t even be parties where Maupassant and Zola were discussed. And then I realized I didn’t even want to go to those types of parties anyways. Because you wanted to know.

  7. Mike Georger

    it would be a conjugation of vigilo, i may be off a letter.

    that kind of major is good for one thing, and one thing alone: jeopardy

    and in no way am i suggesting that shaping a college education around television game shows is a bad thing. it’s really the only use i’ve squeezed out of seven years thus far, i’m dominant at bar trivia.
