I'm such a dork.
me: Sigh...
My home team with the round ball changed its name from "Bullets" because "it's violent."
While my home team with the elongated spheroid won't change its name from a racial epithet.
...at least the ball and stick game is pretty fun to go and watch a couple of times a year.
the fighting game with the puck is not bad, too...

Um... you forget that your ball and stick team are named after politicians. Don't worry; there's always room for another member of Red Sox Nation. Especially when it's you guys.
Oh, and I'm so totally with you on the Bullets. I remember seeing them when I was a kid-- they came up here to meet our lads in green on the fabled parquet. But the 80's were a different age.

Senators...

...that's the old school name. They went with "Nationals" for this iteration.

Back when it wasn't clear what we were going to name the now-transplanted Expos, I was in favor of "Washington Bureaucrats". After all, we only have 100 senators, and tens of thousands of bureaucrats. You wouldn't expect the games to be very exciting, and naturally you'd see a lot of them going 14 innings, but there would never be any doubt who would win at the end of the day.
