Cairo Syrupmakers Named Most Unique Mascot By Sports Illustrated

Sports Illustrated ranked the top mascot names in the nation and says Cairo is #1. Here is how the website described Cairo:

"The name of this tiny south Georgia town is pronounced like the syrup, not like Egypt's capital. But contrary to popular belief, Karo syrup is not produced in Cairo. The old syrup plant used to churn out Roddenberry's. Now, the Syrupmakers just churn out championship football teams. Next month, Cairo will begin its defense of the 2008 Class AAA state title."
