Washington Cons


While I’m pretty juiced about capital punishment, I am not as excited about moving to our national capitol (but I’ll go if the job forces me to).

For one thing, the food in Washington is terrible compared to Philadelphia.

But more importantly, you have the Worst Team in Baseball.

After years with the Philadelphia Phillies, it's hard to believe my future local team:

1) Pays the Worst Player in Baseball 4.2 MILLION DOLLARS!
2) Collapsed down the stretch in a pennant race
3) Abandoned their only true fan from Montreal:

Yes, the only thing worth celebrating about the Expos was that adorable whosiwhatzit, Youppi. He even gave the Phanatic a run for his money. Now he works for a hockey team.

Pathetic.

Go Phillys! That's the way I spell it, and I do not care what others say! :)

Well, look at it this way: in Washington, you'd have bad football and basketball too.

So, now that you know that your hearings are going to start on the 9'th and that our brilliant president is starting to push you to the public, when are we going to start our "call you're senator" campaign?

Of course, I know that you know how to spell "your" in the conventional manner, but remember that you are going to have to be about how well you keep "precedent" and this might be one way to show it. ;-)

PS: A real DC find is that Mr. Smith's in Georgetown has bar food at half-price after 10PM seven nights a week.
