RAND Slam!, a team from the Senate Softball League, bares the name of Sen. Rand Paul. And the team plays in the league named after the chamber in which the Kentucky Republican serves.
But it appears that the roster’s roots might not be from the tea party darling’s office.
Earlier this week, our “Team Name of the Day” tweet commended the team for its clever fusion of the Senator’s first name and the four-run jack.
Earlier today, Moira Bagley, the Senator’s communications director, tweeted back with a hint of surprise that someone was playing under the banner of her boss’ first name.
“But we don’t have a team! Wonder who it could be,” she said.
We tweeted Bagley back, expressing our surprise that the team was not associated with Paul’s office.
Now, like Bagley, we’re beginning to wonder what collection of individuals plays for the team. And more importantly, who thought of that cool name?
