team names

The Metropolitans, the Nationals, the Expositionists (?) (RIP) - was the marketing department on vacation those weeks? Granted Indians isn't the height of creativity, but it was named a LONG time ago back when people didn't know about being cool and naming teams with cool names like: Eviscerators; Emasculinators; Embarrassors; and from the classic, squash, Kids in the Hall sketch, Eradicators!

Overall I think the letter E is a vastly underused tool in the stuff naming arsenal . . . Ashton Kutcher, I'm looking at you.

In NM, we aren't even able to come up with the lame names on our own. We have the Albuquerque Isotopes. Yes, you know you're living in a state populated with only the best & brightest when its citizens turn to the Simpsons for guidance.

BTW: My favorite E name would have to be the Embolisms.

See my previous comment on "e" conservation. You're not exactly helping, Roger.

By the way, the Montreal team was originally named the Exhibitionists, but the head of marketing misunderstood and by the time the error was caught, it was too late. Good thing, though. I'd have hated to see their uniforms.

HDD: Due to my undying love of the Simpsons, I am unable to call the Isotopes lame.

Embalmers would be a good one too. Enervaters.

You're fellow Simpon's fans?

Just when I thought it impossible for HDD and Roger to get any cooler, they amaze me again.

Joe, Quit eavesdropping! That was meant for Roger's "ears" only.
