In fact, I would hazard that use of Cambok instead of Hockey is MORE PC, not
less, as we can plainly see that the top levels of the Cambok Association
allow for participation by both men and women, whereas that is not, uh,
necessarily true for Hockey...besides, "my blood burns for cambok" seems
a little more purifying than "Fire on Ice" which conjures images of Hell,
the supernatural and demons...

I am also all for the relabeling of the consort as Coach. After all, Coach
of Grace and Beauty is a lot more doable for a guy than Queen of Grace and
Beauty. When I win the Cup, I don't want my consort, er, Coach, feeling

(hmmmm... or maybe the stats keepers --lotsa documentation work there)

And we TOTALLY have to lose that phrase "authenticity n---s" -- referees 
will do nicely there...

As for the Acorn, yeah, right outta there -- why not something simple
like the "Atlantic Division Funtime Cambok Club, Inc., Newsletter"
(at least the acronym will begin and end with the same letters).

Peers -- I dunno, makes me think of England and maybe plans to overthrow
the government for a *monarchy* or something (GEEZ). Or, yeah, a Jury
of your Peers... Maybe Contract Holders would do... or All Stars.

Oh, well, gotta go -- gotta finish the boffer fight, er... Junior League game,
with my son so I can go help out sewing some uniforms for some of our
team's rookies...
who would much rather have a story, now, plz...
