Los Bulls Honor The Great Language of Spanglish
The NBA has been honoring their Latin fans by having certain teams wear jerseys that say Los (Insert Team Name Here). The Lakers, Heat, Suns, Spurs, Mavericks, Rockets and Knicks have all already done it. The Bulls will be joining them by wearing specially-made jerseys on Friday. Here’s what it will look like:
If I were Latin (which I’m not, but still) I would be a bit insulted by this. Why “Los Bulls”? Why not “Los Toros”? It’s almost like we are mocking their culture. Putting “Los” in front of an English word seems to be like a joke that people make when they are trying to say something in Spanish but are really just mocking the language.
In other news, Spanglish-speaking people of all kinds are celebrating this wonderful honor.
