go, ham fighters, go!

For whatever reason, my mind just now drifted to the minor epiphany I had a few years ago when I realized that the Nippon Ham Fighters, a Japanese baseball team, did not have the inexplicable "Ham Fighters" as their nickname, but instead were the "Fighters" and were sponsored by the company "Nippon Ham." And, so, in that moment, an alien culture became a little bit less strange.
