DOES EVERYONE HERE KNOW THE NICKNAMES OF ALL PROFESSIONAL TEAMS? I DOUBT IT. WHY THEN DO THE TWO PAPERS INSIST IN GIVING THE RESULTS OF PROFESSIONAL SPORTS CITIES WITH THEIR NICKNAMES?

WE KNOW THAT THEY ARE "CRACKERJACKS" JOCKS WANNABES AND THAT THEY POSSIBLY KNOW THEM ALL....BUT THE AVERAGE READER????? THE HEAD HONCHO OF THE WASHINGTON COMPOST SPORTS DEPT. IS SUCH AN EGOMANIAC THAT HE WOULD NOT EVEN RESPOND TO THAT LEGITIMATE QUERY.


'Spin'....maybe if your email to him was in bold with your CAPS LOCK on, he possibly took the view that you were bawling at him!!  :?

Nicknames are fun aren't they? After all just about everybody on here refers to the 'Nats' .


DO YOU KNOW THE NICKNAMES OF ALL PROFESSIONAL TEAMS. WHEN YOU SEE A BOX WITH RESULTS WITH NICKNAMES, DO YOU KNOW WHICH CITY THEY ARE QUOTING? I DARE SAY NOT. I DARE SAY ONLY ABOUT 5 PERCENT OF READERS KNOW THE NICKNAMES OF ALL PRO TEAMS.


BELIEVE ME, IN MY 70 YEARS AS AN EMPLOYEE OF THE ASSOCIATED PRESS AND THE WASHINGTON COMPOST I HAVE MET MANY SPORTS WRITERS AND 90 PERCENT OF THEM ARE FULL OF THEMSELVES. THEY HAVE AN EXAGGERATED OPINION OF THEIR WRITING.
