Congratulations to Washington D.C., the new Loserville, U.S.A. The District almost had me believing with Alex Ovechkin, but the Capitals absolutely folded down in Game 7. Not that I watched (they started that thing at 4:30 p.m.), but I wanted to read about a good game.
Feel bad for the Capitals, too, and was kind of pulling for them seeing that they are the only team in Washington D.C. that doesn't have an offensive or inappropriate nickname.
The Bullets became the Wizards. And somebody is going to have to explain to me how changing your name from a bullet to the leader of the KKK makes any sense. There's the Redskins. And the Nationals, which is offensive because our country is going through enough right now without having to be associated with the worst run organization in all of professional sports. Make it something that people would associated with losing and D.C.
Like the Washington Bush. Or the W's for short.
So congratulations, Washington D.C. You have taken the mantle from Cleveland as the worst sports town in the nation. You should be proud.
