Kin you believe they is movin' baseball back to Washington, D.C., fer a third time?

Boy, I bet they is excited in D.C. to have a team, especially with the Orioles just a stone's throw away.

Every time they has a team, they names them the Washington Senators. What a bland shirt. There ain't no marketing process goin' on here. That's why I has a solution.

10. The Where Do You Think We'll Move To The Next Timers.

9. The Secret Servicemen.

8. The Capitol Hillbillies.

7. The Big Business Bribers.

6. The Interns.

5. The Marion Berry Undercover Sting Operations.

4. The Ted Kennedy Party Animals.

3. The Impeachables.
