Balzac Blues...

  • As a sidenote, as far as "mascots" go, I'll bet'cha "Washington Redskins" is looking a lot better to the folks who were, only recently, pretty outraged about it.Tho, "Washington Balzacs" has a refined, cultured ring to it, eh? And what a swingin' halftime show to be had, no?

A Reasonable Compromise...

But --in the spirit of compromise that is SO reflective of our nation's capital-- I'm willing to consider "Washington Foreskins."

It retains the short-hand tradition ...wow: that just sounds wrong... of folks cheering "Go, 'Skins!"
