Our National Pastime

The Confidence Man notes with some regret that his prediction regarding the ultimate fate of the Montreal Expos has not come to pass.

No, the forlorn Expos will be relocated to Our Nation's Capital. And the search is one for a new team nickname.

The Confidence Man has a suggestion, one that is in accord with:
  • the trend in other professional sports toward abstract nouns as team names
  • the recent history of the Expos
  • the demographics of the denizens of the new host town
  • electoral trends under the current pResident
Ladies and gentlemen, your Washington Disenfranchise!
