D.C. Fandom: Now in License Plate Format

D.C.'s will look just as purty.

If the tattered burgundy and gold car flag doesn't give away that you're a Redskins fan, then maybe your license plate soon will.  If a bill introduced by D.C. Councilmembers Jack Evans and Kwame Brown clears, reports DC Wire, then local sports fans can have their own team-focused plates.

No longer will fans have to sit there, staring longingly at the parking lots at FedEx, while their carpetbagging neighbors from Virginia and Maryland get to have all the fun with their fancy schmancy license plates.

Plates would cost $25, and have a biennial $20 fee.  And to keep the good folks at DC Vote happy, the plates will continue to have "Taxation Without Representation" front and center -- take that, Virginia!

If football's not your thing, and you're more for that sport with the orange bouncy ball -- ah, basketball! -- then you're in luck.  You can have either the Wizards (hurry before they change back to the Bullets!) or the Mystics (hurry before someone takes the ATNDCHMP plate!).

You like hockey, they've got a Caps one.  You like soccer, there's United.  You like baseball, they've got a Nats.  There also would be plates for the Kastles, Freedom and Bayhawks.  Sorry G'town fans, no college plates in this go round.

After costs of production are made up, the balance of the profits go back into the city coffers.  And who wouldn't want to give more dough to the D.C. government?  It's a win-win for all involved.
