baseball tonight 10.26.04

late evening tired my back hurts.

but.

i was swimming, thinking of how major league baseball is looking for names for the new washington dc ballclub (who were the old expos. they don't want to carry the name since the team was named for expo '76). according to ball wonk, they are considering appropriating the name of the classic negro league team, the grays, perhaps. here are my suggestions:

++the washington cattle call-- imagine a logo with a woman draped across a steer. not such a good idea? how about:
++the washington coon skinners -- a logo with a man with a racoon slung over a shoulder and a baseball bat in the other hand (what, you thought i'd go somewhere else with that one?); or:
++the washington armor chinks -- perhaps a logo with balls spraying at a medeival helmet (maybe the mascot could have his helmet half off-- and look! it's saddam hussein!); or:
++the washington gay congressional shower head -- 'nuff said.

p.s. if you're bored, slap bush! courtesy of val from stl.

completely unrelated to baseball and not at all interesting, but a woman i work with was late today because a racoon got into her house (in capitol hill!!) in the middle of the night.

(i really just wanted write a post demonstrating the fact that i'm actually employed now)

Woo-hoo! Twenty-seven more outs! It's now raining pretty hard in L.A., proof that God will flood the earth to prevent the Red Sox from winning. And by the way, the Expos might have been named for something appropriate only to Montreal, but there ain't no fucking lakes here in L.A., and the jazz in Salt Lake City sucks.

I still think that they should be the Washington Generals. You know, like the team that always loses to the Globetrotters. What better name for the team that will soonhave used to be the Expos.
