      See, I’ve been looking forward to the inverse: can’t you just imagine references to that NYC AL East team as: “those Commie Yanks”?

      But, yes, congratulations are in order. Just remember: once you’ve accepted your bowler hat from the League, you can never give it back.Report

        My god, you’re right J.L… or Jaybird at the Corner? I don’t even know what he’d say but I know that K-Lo’s brains would be melted all over the dashboard before the day was done.Report

          There are two Jaybirds. Jaybird the comment person and Jaybird the “I’m publishing this as a post” person. The former is mostly id. The latter almost entirely superego.

          I fear that people will want the one but get the other and feel nothing but disappointment when the realization sets in.Report
