Washington Post columnist Mike Wise is not my favorite sportswriters these days. Like most opinion-shapers, his columns are too long to enjoy (says the blogger who writes 1,000-word essays for a medium where 500 words are too many).
Wise champions changing the name of my favorite football team on the claim that the spurious word is a slur. Yes, Redskins fans, the claim that redskin is a slur is dubious and deserves challenge.
Wise only gets Hog Heaven’s passing glance these days. A glance turned up Wise’s column in today’s print edition of The Post, Survey says . . . we’re great. One question in Wise’s mock survey is genuinely funny.
Which of the following team slogans makes you the most excited about the 2013 season?
- Robert Gandhi III
- Touchdown Threesus
- RGIII Passion, RGIII Pride
- No Rehab, No Diamonds
- We Will Call Ourselves What We Damned Well Please
Correct answer: All of the above.
