womzilla is all Twitterpated, and he brings the best tid-bits from tweets to me, which seems to me far better than actually reading Twitter, especially when I just got back to LJ and hardly ever get on Facebook.
Anyway, inspired by the Baltimore Ravens, tweets had been appearing about possible other major-league team names based on literature written by people from that city or area. The discussion continued in our living room, with results that included
the Detroit Psychos (Block was in Wisconsin, at least)
the Providence, RI, Outsiders (should they ever get a major league team)
and the Chicago Hog Butchers.
W. said he could especially see the team mascot for the third one, a deranged-looking pig wearing a bloody apron and carrying a cleaver. Someone on Twitter had suggested the Chicago Shoulders, but we liked this one, from the same poem, better.
Mood: good thing we three amuse ourselves
