The Washington Nationals Are Born!

Well, after months of speculation, including input from baseball fans and sports radio hosts, the Montreal Expos, now relocated from Canada to the U.S. capital, have been renamed: The Washington Nationals. Not quite the Washington Senators of old, but how ... neutral sounding.

I guess that suggestion by one voicer to call the team the"Washington Scandals" was, uh, too descriptive of the town's political reality.

LOL ... yes, that would have captured an essential attribute of the town. :)

I thought the "Washington Tax-eaters" would have been appropriate.
Just a thought.
