  1. It would be fun to see what team would win the presidential name race. I figured the Cardinals with their long history would have a few of the obscure names. No Coolidge, or Clinton?

    1. I thought for sure there would be a Clinton, I am sure the Bucs have close to the same #?

    2. Very cool idea Brady! And Matthew... that would be awesome. The only blogger I could see going out and doing all of that research would be the cardboard blogger godfather himself... Mr. Night Owl. I'd offer... but I'm way too lazy to even look up the A's players.

      Help us Mr. Night Owl... you're our only hope!

    3. I could only do it while having the debate on-I wrapped it up at the exact time the debate was over-perfect timing.
