City Paper is not for tourists
L’Examiner reported last week that Council Chairman Kwame “Fully Loaded” Brown‘s office had picked the name “Fully Unloaded” as its name in a walking/fitness competition. Brown isn’t the only councilmember to poke fun at himself, Councilmember Phil Mendelson’s team name is “The Nitpickers” because Mendo is, well, a nitpicker. And Councilmember Michael Brown‘s office went with “The Real Michael Browns,” which has to hurt the other real Michael Brown’s feelings.
The other, less notable, team names are:
Missing from the list are the offices of Councilmembers Jim Graham, Muriel Bowser, Yvette Alexander and Marion Barry. They had better come up with a team name quick, before this blog’s commentariat does it for them.
Update: According to council staff, Graham’s team is called “The bowtie beetles,” and Alexander’s team is called “Alexander the Greeeaats.”
