Can we please call them the Senators?
The new baseball team in Washington is going to be called the Nationals. The city is ditching three score and eleven years (1900-1971) of tradition as the Washington Senators (“First in war, first in peace, and last in the American League”) mostly because of the opposition of the mayor. Most baseball fans loved the Senators name and wanted to see its return, but the mayor said that there will be no Senators baseball in Washington until the city receives representation in the U. S. Senate. Never mind that the District of Columbia didn’t have senators when the Senators were playing there before. I’m surprised he didn’t get into “Taxation Without Representation” while he was at it.
