Let's all stop trying to live in the past where the Toronto Huskies name rightfully belongs. There absolutely no pride, tradition or mystic surrounding the the Huskies name. The name has a historical purpose in Toronto sports history and it's a relic that belongs to remain a long past memory.
If there's one thing the Toronto basketball franchise currently possesses that has the strength to rally the people of Toronto and the conviction to garner the support of the entire Canadian populous, and that's our name: The Toronto "Raptors" - one of the fierecest, most vicious and deadliest animals to ever exists. Raptors distinctly enbolden the spirit of canadia basketball in Canada.
Let's raise our fists and let's all fight to keep the coolest and most original team nicknames in all professional sports.
