Washington City Paper welcomes Babb, announces picks to replace Redskins name

Our nation’s capital’s alt-weekly welcomed former Star columnist Kent Babb to DC, with a slight jab at his former employer, which has made waves recently for banning in most cases the use of the name “Redskins.”

It also announced the finalists in its reader contest to pick a new name for the ‘Skins – at least for use in the City Paper. The finalists?

  • Washington Pigskins
  • Washington Washingtons (one of our picks!)
  • Washington Monuments
  • Washington Half-Smokes
  • Washington Bammas

I still like the Diplomats or Joint Chiefs, but the people have spoken.
