Curse of Les Boullets
Last night, the Washington Wizards played in their old Washington Bullets uniforms. (How much are they charging for that?)
The team changed its name to Wizards 1997 as it moved to D.C., apparently in an effort to keep from evoking the city's dangerous, murder-plagued image.
Hey, here's a better idea: instead of making the Bullets change their name, why not reduce the number of murders? A novel approach, I know.
Or, as Jay Leno said: "The Washington Bullets are changing their name. They don't want their team to be associated with crime. From now on, they'll just be known as the Bullets."
