The announcement has been made. The Washington, D.C. football team (formerly known as the Redskins) will be known as the Commanders.
I'd love to have a video of the meetings that produced that gem. At a time when Washington, D.C. is viewed as power-hungry and out of touch with the American people, "Commanders" sets the wrong tone. It is the sort of name only comic-book lovers will embrace.
They should have been bold. Imagine these:
- The Washington Bureaucrats
- The Washington Weasels
