we've got woof

Finally, we've gotten our own baseball team here in DC. They picked a boring name in my opinion, The Washington Nationals. They could have picked more historic names such as our previous teams The Grays or The Senators, or even my favorite, The Washington Monuments. Imagine a tough little stone colossus mascot guy. That would have been cute.

Anyway, The Gays are hoping Joey Eischen remains on the lineup for Spring Training. We've got woof! Omigawd we're like the same age!

They picked Washington Nationals because the name was available again after our retarded congress named your airport after that Reagan asshole.

And "The Senators" is already owned by the Montreal franchise, believe it or not. So, they couldn't use that. IMO, they could have used a serial number. A team name doesn't do much, it's more about how much cash you got to hire talent. That's what makes any team.

And WashDC sure don't got much cash.
If you think so, wait-n-see who they sign, and more to the point -- how much they take in ticket wise. The DC franchise is a po'man's district, bigtime.

Rob: do tell. City ownership of a team seems to work OK for the Green Bay Packers. See also: the success of DC United. Sure, the Wizards suck and the Capitols are unremarkable, but baseball has some promise.

Of more concern to me ( an out-of-towner) is the choice of location for the new stadium. It may supplant my all time favorite venue in DC: I don't even know its name. The Glorious something, next to a drag bar and a bath house. It's a video rental place where you pay your ten bucks and gain admission to the back area which is a large warehouse with partitioned cubicles and glory holes. A fascinating mix of folks and much extremely hot sex. Few places like it.
