  •  I Used To Be A Ticket Holder In DC (13+ / 0-)

    I don't really like to type their name cause I agree with you, but I think you know the team I speak of :).

    When I lived there our NBA team was called the Bullets. At the time we were the "murder capital" of the nation. Killing folks wholesale.

    It was suggested maybe a major league team shouldn't be called the Bullets. So they became the Wizards.

    I can only say the DC football team is one of maybe the most expensive franchises in the country. I think they are number two in football and number four overall.

    Well over a billion. Clearly why they don't change.

    Now I mentioned this here last night. Here in my home state we no longer use "Chief Illiniwek" as the mascot of our flagship, major university. University of Illinois. The NCAA made us stop that, and there was close to arm revolt.

    If you can stomach it here is how that ended.

    Even to this day if Metor Blades was in my town and mentioned he was for this band he might met phycial violece.

    A pretty heated topic.

    When opportunity calls pick up the phone and give it directions to your house.
