yeah obamacares is a good contender in a strong field, but it looks like hatcat has it 4-3 over generals. that is a mandate if ever i saw one.

just had a great discussion about this with a co-worker. he asked me if i had heard about "all this fuss" about the r******s name, and that he thought it was bogus. there's no reason for anyone to get offended, he can't understand why anyone would, and he doesn't consider the term slanderous or racist. then i asked him about who was leading the effort to change the name, and he said some native american groups were involved. uhh...

he also said

"there was a time when geronimo was on the u.s. nickel - it's an honor."

can't argue with that!

Z S, Friday, 13 September 2013 13:36 (eight years ago) link

There's a Native American on a U.S. coin now! What the hell is his point?

It's a good day to re-read this David Brooks NYTMag profile of Dan Snyder from 1999 which portrays Snyder as a breath of fresh air in stuffy DC; concludes "his influence on the Redskins has been unambiguously positive"; & predicts a Super Bowl w/i 5 years. https://t.co/Wrc3x0MTRB

local girls softball team is the Troubadours which i thought was an alltime dumb name for a sports team

aww I kinda like it

"Senators" is a solid name too

idk the best team names are non-threatening and dumb. the worst ones are the ones that try to appear macho. animals + alliteration are always good - "Seattle Seahawks" is one of the best. idk if "Commanders" is worse than Browns, Bills, or Patriots, but it does have a very Arena Football feel to it, if I were an announcer I'd struggle to say it

Yeah that’s nuts I95 south of DC is a parking lot even on weekends, although maybe they could put a VRE station at the stadium.

I have a feeling the Governor is just gonna shovel money to Snyder anyway might as well get a train station out of the deal.

Lol at "create."

At minimum, it would exacerbate the existing ones.

Which could be - in the long term - a good thing. At this point I do not give a fuck. Make the whole enterprise utterly untenable. Teach the fan base an expensive and unpleasant lesson. Make it suck, for everyone forever. Maybe then people will rethink how it could be done differently.
