Washington something-or-others

If you live ’round these parts (that would be the Washington, D.C., metro area) you know one thing for certain: we talk about football regardless of season, regardless of pandemics, and regardless of whether or not anyone will ever actually be allowed to play football again.

Case in point, news this week, my local NFL team will (soon, I guess) change its nickname. This move has been decades in the making, but apparently it’s realĀ this time.

I’ve noted before that I think most people, in D.C. and out, are way more offended by the word “Washington” than by the word “Redskins.” Washington? Ew! Nobody likes Washington. Think about changing that one too.
