The U.S. House of Representatives has approved legislation to make Washington DC a state. The name of this new state could be "Douglass Commonwealth," honoring Abolitionist and former DC resident Frederick Douglass. 

Since the football team is considering a new name, we propose the name "DC Abolitionists."

Like the Washington Nationals MLB team, multiple mascots honoring Douglass, Harriet Tubman, Sojourner Truth, and many more would be appropriate. 

There could be a booster club for kids to join - the Underground Railroad - and ticketed members could join the mascots on the sidelines for activities with the mascots. 

There is even a ready-made theme song: James Carr's "Freedom Train."
