    Washington Senators

    http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmp...pos_washington

    YES!! When Angelos royaling fucked over the Orioles, I decided never to root for the O's untill Angelos died or retired. For the last 5 seasons or so, The only interest in baseball I retained was a hatred for the yankees. Now, I have a team.

    Great so now the Expos are going to be like the Nordiques and the Jets of hockey. Everyone walking around with their logo like 10 years from now, yet they weren't fans of the bloody team originally, and probably like everyone ELSE around me, HATED THEM. I'll hear such wonderful idiocy like "Oh man, I wish they'd bring back the Expo's, they were so good!" or "Quebec need another team, remember the expos?"

          Raven, Winnipeg is a viable NHL city, Montreal is NOT a viable MLB city...you can't support a baseball team strictly based on population, the people must CARE. The people of Winnipeg care about hockey, the people of Montreal don't give two shits about baseball.

            How'd you like to be a team employee who now has to leave Montreal (which, for all I enjoy gently joshing our Canadian friends, is supposedly a pretty nice place to live as cities go) and move to Washington, D.C. which can charitably be described as a slowly sinking filth-encrusted hell-hole?


            Also, notice that the WDC mayor has weighed in with the opinion that the name "Senators" is unacceptable because DC doesn't have a Senator, so he wants the "Grays" to honor the old negro-league team. I guess that's not a bad thing to do, but the name sucks, and so does he.

            I suggest a compromise: We please everyone by calling the team the "Pimps." It's colorful, it evokes imagery of D.C.'s vibrant street scene, and it's syntactically interchangeable with the term "Senators." Think about it. Come up with any typical sentence you might expect to find with the word "Senator" in it and replace it with "pimp" and see if it really changes the meaning at all.

              well. the Rangers still own the name Senators, I'm sure that has something to do with it. Nevertheless, the name "The Grays" does suck.

              Btw, have you ever been to DC? Ever been to the suburbs of DC?

                I've got to say, finally the team will be in a place that actually wants them there.

                  Ironically, Winnipeg HAS been offered a NHL team since, but they don't want it. They are happy with their Moose, the farm team for the Canucks.

                    Don,

                    Yeah it does suck for the emplyees. I'm much rather the Expos stay and keep people employed.

                      Um, no, the Mayor of Winnipeg is behind getting a team back in the city now...the people want it, the government wants it...it could happen.

                          Because you certainly can't do it in hockey.

                            Ok, then things have changed, or what I read was false.
