The Washington Redskins, plagued with calls for political correctness, earnestly tried a new name in practice this week. Well, not exactly new…for the week, they referred to themselves as the Washington Senators, drawing from the name used by the D.C. football team back in 1921. Problems soon arose.
The Right Guard immediatly began to filibuster every huddle. The entire defensive line shutdown practice, demanding cuts to special teams. The full back refused to give the ball to the tight end, because, well, that just sounded too gay. And the wide receivers? Well, they got along with the tight ends, but that’s just about it.
On the brighter side, the offensive line blocked everything from getting to the quarterback. But then they wouldn’t let him pass anything unless they approved of the play, after sending it to committee. It got to where every huddle in their practice scrimmage led to a delay of game penalty.
Management soon realized calling the team the “Washington Senators” would lead to Gridiron Gridlock. Still, they would like to rename the team to something that would strike fear in the hearts of their opponents. This coming week, they’ll call themselves the Washington ObamaCare.
