Red Sox Nation, Yankees Universe, Rays Republic . . . the Nats are content to go with something more modest.

Eh. What about an “Army?”  Worked for Kiss, so you think it would work for a baseball team.

Sorry to be sticking with this subject today, but I don’t have to report
for Death Panel duty until the bill is signed so I’m trying to find something to kill some time.

    Craig, I am one of your everyday readers. I would hate to have to change that because you bring up propaganda about a very heated subject. Maybe I’m the only one who feels this way, maybe not, but that’s just my two cents if it’s worth it to you.
    P.S. Yay Joe Mauer!

    Sorry if that bugs you, Trevor. But really, if we can’t laugh at an absurd offshoot of a piece of legislation we’re probably taking politics way too damn seriously in this country.

    If you’re going to mention Natstown, don’t forget Birdland. Ah, the joys of having both MASN channels.

    I’m an everyday reader, and I say: don’t change, Craig. That was an unexpected, and awesome, laugh for my afternoon.

    Oh lighten up Trevor, is making a joke at our politicians’ expense now unamerican as well?

    as someone who is a fan of the legislation, I thought the first reference was particularly fantastic and hilarious.
    Though I didn’t need anymore. We can turn into many other blogs for politics information.

    Trevor for an everyday reader you are touchy. Afterall if we cannot crack jokes about politicians then something has to change, because I am not aware of a group of people who needs to be made fun of more than the politicians in this country.

    Oh I am being light, but at the same time with the recent polital events that cause some heated debate I’d just like to say that although it doesn’t directly help me any that there are millions of people in America who will greatly benefit from this. Also, there are no death panels :-) that just gives me images of the 1913 Boston Braves and their swastika caps haha.

    Maybe we can replace this newfangled instant replay thing with death panels. Umpires would love to serve on them. Hell, I’ll volunteer for those death panels myself if I can use my time as credit against jury duty, and especially if I can have the healthy parts cheap to resell on the transplant organ black market. I could see starting up a back market transplant organ commodity market and being so successful that within a few months I could afford to buy myself some Republican congressmen (Democrats do cost less but have practically no resale value). Anyone wanna get in on the ground floor with ulnar collateral ligament futures?

    Sorry, no one gets an Army who is not a military academy. There is only one “Army” – “Arnie’s Army”. Arnold Palmer is an icon and there shall be no more Army nicknames.
    So for the Nationals… how about the Nationals Nebula? I mean, that’s basically our government for you, up in the stars, detached from reality and spending all its time swirling… Yes? No?

    oko and BC, The list has been duly noted, let the heckling commence!

  15. BC - Mar 23, 2010 at 11:05 AM

    Personally, I don’t have much idea how striped bass made it on the list. I had the TV on in the background. Maybe a Bassmasters commercial came on, and it was sort of a subliminal thing…

    If you are willing to buy a house, you will have to get the loan. Moreover, my sister commonly utilizes a collateral loan, which seems to be really reliable.
