but it wasn’t enough. Restoring the name of the team would restore the link to the team’s history and allow fans to cringe less when their team name is mentioned on national TV.

The Washington Wizards could

In 2010, Dan wrote a detailed historyin this space about how and why Abe Pollin switched the name of his NBA franchise from the Bullets to the Wizards. You’ve likely read,
babyliss 1000, and perhaps forgotten, that the other finalists for the team’s new name included Sea Dogs, Express, Stallions and Dragons. Actually, you probably haven’t forgotten Sea Dogs.

There was another nickname that I hadn’t read about as a suggested replacement for Bullets until a reader tweeted a link to a Sun Sentinel article last week:

Via the article, from December 1995:

Fans had until today to turn in their ideas for a new name. Bullets spokesman Matt Williams said the team expects to receive more than 300,000 ballots. The Washington Monuments is a popular choice, he said.

Other ideas: The Glory. The Power. The Ravens,

The Washington Ravens, viagra huh? It’s easy to believe when you consider that the reported 500,000 submissions included roughly 3,000 different names. Art Modell didn’t announce the nickname for his new NFL franchise until March 1996, so Ravens was still a fresh possibility. Had the Ravens emerged as a serious contender to replace Bullets, Baltimore’s football team may have adopted Americans or Marauders instead.

After being swept in the first round of the 1997 playoffs by the Bulls, the Bullets became the Wizards. (John McDonnell/The Washington Post)

It’s somewhat more difficult to believe that the 13 year old Bullets fan quoted in the second paragraph of the Sun Sentinel article is Missy Khamvongsa

LANDOVER, Md. Missy Rosenberg’s father has buy generic viagra taken her to Washington Bullets basketball games since she was a baby. She’s a big fan. Only one thing bothers her: the team’s name. and other areas," the 13 year old girl from Vienna, Va., said recently as her team beat the Atlanta Hawks. "And the name, even though it doesn’t support violence, it’s a symbol. Bullets hurt people."

The Washington Monuments. That’s what the team should be called, Missy said. Monuments are big and strong, and they don’t hurt people.

boucles babyliss, who is overcome with embarrassment about her comments on the matter,
seche cheveux babyliss ipro 2200, requested the opportunity to write a rebuttal in the form of a letter to her 13 year old self. I happily obliged.

Dear 13 year old Missy,

You were wrong, let me make that clear. Well, not about the fact that bullets hurt people (because, obviously, they do). But you were wrong about the Washington basketball team’s nickname having anything to do with perpetuating violence. Having a basketball team named the Bullets won’t incite people to physical violence any more than calling a team the Raptors could incite an outbreak of Jurassic carnivores. Almost two more decades of life experience has taught me that.

In 1995, Abe Pollin did a very good job of convincing members of the media and, in turn, the Washington area, that the name change was the right thing to do. You took in what the owner said and saw it re enforced in the pages of The Washington Post and on the local news. It’s only natural that you would believe changing the name would make a real difference when it came to the violence here and beyond.

It might surprise you to know that the current you is now in favor of changing the name back. Changing the colors back was a start, but it wasn’t enough. Restoring the name of the team would restore the link to the team’s history and allow fans to cringe less when their team name is mentioned on national TV.

Bottom line 13 year old Missy: Bullets do hurt people, but the Wizards name hurts worse.31 year old Missy (who’s on Twitter)

I am very pleased with this collapsible cheap burberry basket. It is nice and deep and sturdy at the same time, besides being very pretty. I use this basket everyday. I received one for my birthday & I loved it so much I ordered a second one. I keep one in my car at all times, they are just so handy! If you go to the market more than once a week as I do, cheap tiffany or if you just have a lot to carry back & forth to work everyday you will t be disappointed in this basket. They hold A LOT & they are made well. I honestly don't kw how I ever got along without them w! 2 commentsWas this review helpful to you? This has been a great product. I t only carry my Michael Kors Canadagroceries in it but also pack it for camping or hauling things like taking things to ather persons house. Very happy with this "market basket"! Get LOTS of compliments on it too. A week ago a lady stops me in the grocery store to ask me where I got it. The "name tag" hogan outlet is inside the basket so you should be getting at lease one more sale!! Very elegant, versatile basket -- can be used in the car, shopping, or in the house for moving stuff from room to room or to hold stuff like magazines.

When t in use, Billig Michael Kors it is in the back of my car with grocery bags, gloves, scaves, etc. Love it. it is a great basket and goes with me to trader joes every ...calzoncillo calvin klein got this from my mom for christmas, i had idea they cost this much.... it is a great basket and goes with me to trader joes every time! 1 of 2 people found the following review helpfulcalvin klein baratos This bag is a huge disappointment for one simple reason: the bottom strap that goes around the downtube is almost a FOOT long. I can almost wrap it twice around the downtube, but there'scheap tiffany no way to fasten the velcro. If I want to fasten it, I have to leave it so loose that it slides and flops and wobbles all over the place. And mind you, this is on a Trek MTB with a very fat downtube.calvin klein espa?a It's a total mess. If the velcro covered the entire length of the strap, it would work fine, but it doesn't. This is going to be the first item I've ever returned.michael kors outlet uk I purchased this basket for my mom as a gift. She completely loved it and has been showing it off carrying multiple jars of canned items to various functions in it. It is very sturdy and adorable. The only reason I gave it four stars instead of calvin klein baratos five is that it doesn't collapse as easily as ather similar basket that I have. You have to slide out some plastic pieces on the sides in order to collapse it I guess. However, it is much sturdier than the basket I own probably for that reason. I am happy with the purchase and it was priced lower than a local store.calzoncillos calvin klein baratos
