Can we please get rid of the R******s name?

When sports fans tuned into the NBA finals Tuesday night to see the San Antonio Spurs take on the Miami Heat, they got a look into another fierce standoff.

A California tribe paid for the anti-Redskins advertisement “Proud to Be” to run in seven major cities during halftime. The airing marked the first time the ad, which initially appeared online in time for the Super Bowl, had run before such a wide television audience.

This is a couple of days old, but I only got around to reading the story last night. The New York Times has an occasional sports magazine supplement, and this week, they published a nice article on Bill Parcells: Bill Parcells is the only coach in N.F.L. history to take four different teams to the…
I got a late start this morning, and had to run some errands today, but I would be remiss if I didn't post something to commemorate the wackiness in the Tampa subregional of the NCAA Tournament. They played four games yesterday in Tampa: the first two went into overtime, with Western Kentucky…
I know I'm a few days late on this, but I thought I'd follow up last year's embarrassing predictions with another slate. Actually, it wasn't all bad. I predicted that the Pistons would be better than the year before and they were. I predicted that the Miami Heat would start slow, leading Pat Riley…

Fitting with the article's title, one of the best suggestions I've heard for a new name is the Washington [Redacted].

We shall not see the end of this preposterpous PC massacree until the last Redskin has been strangled with the bowels of the last ticket scalper .

Can't help pondering sports, American regressive world views, Sterling, and "owning" the Clippers.

And lest we forget, words have both power and broader implications.
