that's a pretty horrible name.

i would have added a coma and a question mark, to make the title a question:

"American Beef, Scott?"

I think it will be a psycological advantage for them when they go up against the American teams


think about it, would you want to beat your meat in a race?

No there's a team jersey I might consider buying!

I hope it has a big ass steer wrapped around it

I figure puns and jokes like these will be milked again and again until the cows come home, but I'm not going to steak my reputation on it or anything.

As Paul Sherwen would say, "That's completely and udderly ridiculous to be steering us out into left field like that, something only a cow-ard would do!"

The new team will now be titled Scott-American Beef and will come back to the competition at the Classic of San Sebastian in eight days.

Isn't most American beef pretty much doped up with bovine growth hormone and whatnot? Seems like a perfect fit.

And yet it will be purchased by many American men named Scott.

I'm still wondering if this is some kind of joke??? But apparently not. One can only hope that a potato company does not gain advertising space on the shorts.

Well fortunately for me, Paul Sherwen can be full of baloney, spouting all that bull all the time. But it's all Kosher as long as nobody decides to grill me about it.

I for one find puns more annoying than funny.
Kind of like clowns.

Two cannibals are eating a clown, when one turns to the other and asks, "Does this taste funny to you?"

Sorry, I couldn't help it.

Any cycling team that had two cannibals on it would be awesome!

Ok Ok now I got to wipe off my keyboard. Spewed milk out my nose.
Good ot hear that the team is hopefully remaining intact. no use throwing the baby out with the bath water.

LMAO Cannibles and evil clowns are cool. You could have a killer cowboy clown riding a bucking steer, now that would be a cool jersey.
