I find it ironic becuase when you think of a Washington DC team, you’d expect the team’s nickname to be representative of the DC area, or the US in general. Having a formerly foreign team dressed in red, white and blue might seem strange to some. If the Expos were to become the “Nationals” I give a local DC sportshack roughly 2 seconds before giving them the “witty” monkier of “The Washington Canadians”. It’d be another lame sports joke... like “why are they called the Browns if they wear orange?”
Not heat with ya, Z, but I just thought you were being a little too harsh with the apple thing. I wasn’t necessarily citing the old “baseball, mom, applepie” adage. Cuz’ moms aren’t exactly indigenous to the US, either... and baseball itself could be traced to lame-ass cricket...blah blah.
Skorpio, you're completely mad! I am not lucky to dump Kenny Rogers. His new owner is simply unfortunate. Your lead is not as impenetrable as you think, good sir. Also, someone please take my relievers off my hands.
