Go Chickenhawks! [Seriously]

[OK, slightly OT] The oldest public high school in the U.S. Virgin Islands, Charlotte Amalie High School, has as its mascot the Chickenhawks.

Seriously. Here's their motto:

"You just can't hide our Chickenhawk Pride!"

'Seems like a suitable setting for Fred Kagan's next speech on the Surge in Iraq.

They appear to have a good football team. This should be documented as the 1st time a chickenhawk has worn any type of uniform.

Well, it's a Sharp-shinned Hawk, not technically a chicken hawk... the "classic" chicken hawk is a Cooper's Hawk -

But Cooper's Hawks should be associated with these chickenshits. Coops' actions are consistent with their personality, and they do not shy from a fight. I understand how the name came about, but it seems so unfair.

Oops - I meant Coops should NOT be associated with the chickenshits.
