On the Washington Senators...
"For the Washington Senators, the worst time of year is the baseball season."
"There is a federal law that forbids them to win."
"Watching the Washington Senators, you forget the beauty of baseball. You forget the bare-handed grab, the elegant stretch at first, the choreography of a six-four-three double play. Watching the Washington Senators is like watching the human condition without the slapstick. It is an excercise in humility."
"Squeeze Play", (1990)
"The Senators might have been one of baseball's most god-awful teams, a threadbare and lackluster group of has-beens, never-wases, and names that were not even household names in their own households."
-Bert Randolph Sugar
"We cheer for the Senators, we pray for the Senators, and we hope that the Supreme Court doesn't declare them unconstitutional."
-Lyndon B. Johnson (1908-73)
36th President of the United States
