Cherry blossoms don't really pop on a grey background.

The uniforms are great, but WSH??? No.

They've gone too far with this "Washington" stuff. No one here calls it that. They need to rename the area teams DC.

they have that great dc logo from the first few seasons.  If they aren't using a :w: , then the dc should be used rather than wsh

 No one here calls it Washington?  I thought the use was pretty interchangeable generally, with a favoring towards the use of Washington, but that might just be me. I guess they can prioritize giving Columbus his due, as well as emphasizing the status as a federal district.

It is a bit fraught.  Washington owned slaves, Columbus enslaved and slaughtered, and Chocolate City, Covfefegrad, and Millennial Intern Playground all offend someone for some reason or another. 

That said, the more I look at this cherry blossom kit, the more I like it  :D

IMO, the cherry blossoms could stand to be a big bigger, and the letters could stand to be a bit smaller. I like the idea of using cherry blossoms as that is a very local thing unique to the DC area and they are wearing them in April.

the uniform announcement was made in conjunction with the wizards who unveiled similar uniforms.

Both teams still suck. Nice the owners can make some more money.

? I'm not sure I have never heard a local call the city Washington. If someone here said, "I'm going to Washington tomorrow" I'd assume they were flying to the state. DC, the District, the City, downtown, etc.

Usually when someone says, "So, you're from Washington?" I know I've ventured too far South or West and the conversation is about to take an awkward turn.

In decades in this area on both sides have the river,  I seem to recall numerous people — whether they were from here, relocated here, or visiting — using the term Washington in the singular while referencing the city, and when they were talking about the state, they often specified Washington state.

This is especially as the news generally references just “Washington“ at the end of untold stories – – even at the Pentagon (where it even says just “Washington“ on the news podium despite being in Arlington), and when they would change that to refer to the state by name, it stands to reason that they would often tend to specify ‘Washington state’.

My wife and daughter both want the hats. I could see the pattern being somewhat popular

Not a huge fan of the floral print being splattered across the whole uniform, but it’s pretty okay.

It may be just me, but 'WSH' always looks and sounds like an airport baggage code... ;)

WSH sounds like the Sunshine Squad's view of the roster.  Or perhaps that's death WSH and the Legion of Doom.
