~ A movement to bring the Washington Grays back to the District ~

Phase 1, COMPLETE: Baseball is back in D.C.!

Phase 2, Pending: Name the new D.C. team after the Grays

Take Action Alert! Bud Selig and MLB may name the team after the World Series. Write to them now!


"Naming the city's major league team after the Washington Homestead Grays, perennial Negro League champions, would be a fitting living memorial to the great black baseball team that once played here. In a city filled with monuments there is nothing to remind us that great black sluggers Josh Gibson and Buck Leonard packed Griffith Stadium and hit home runs at a pace unmatched by their white counterparts on the Washington Senators. Keeping the Gray's name alive is a fitting tribute to the city's forgotten baseball past. It also links the new team to a winning tradition."

-Brad Snyder, Author "Beyond the Shadow of the Senators: The Untold Story of the Homestead Grays and the Integration of Baseball"


My boss absolutely hated me, and I knew it. It wasn't something that was in my mind, he told me so. I didn't do anything to my boss to make him hate me, but I guess when I showed that I had more experience on the job than him, it made him very sore against me. I had been working at my job for 10 years, and my boss was brand-new out of college, and he didn't know the job very well. I honestly don't even know how he got the job, other than having a good resume, because he had very little on-the-job experience.

I became sick one day, and I desperately needed to go home, and my boss actually told me I couldn't leave work. In the process of him telling me why a couldn't leave, I began throwing up, right in front of him. Everyone was disgusted, and I was completely embarrassed. I thought that throwing up would be a good enough excuse to go home, but he actually told me to get the janitor to clean up the vomit, and to get back to work. Everyone gave him a dirty look, and several people complained about how he was treating me. I had personally purchased a doctor's excuse form FakeDoctorsNoteTips.com, and how glad I did, this have served as my outlet to avoid my boss' madness.

He then relented, and said that if I got a doctors note template, that he would allow me to stay home from work. It was still early enough in the day, so I knew I could get a slip template, but I couldn't afford the co-pay to see the doctor, until next week. I didn't know what to do. He said I could go home, and I did, but I was frantic all evening. I got lucky, because after resting for a while, I search the internet, and found a website offering doc document template within some time.

I went through the website, and found a great example of a doctors note template, which would work for me. The template had a signature on it, and I knew that I would have to use a note template , just so I could get out of working. Although this is not something I would normally do, my boss will not let me come back to work, without having the note, and I could easily lose my job without it. I took the sample of the doctors note template, and I printed it out.

I called out from work the next day, and I was told that I would need to turn in some form template when I came back to work. My boss wouldn't accept that I was sick, and he even got on the phone to discipline me, and I hung up in his face. I returned days later with my fake doctors note, and my boss couldn't say anything about it. Although these notes are considered unreal, we can't deny the fact that a fake dr note is much better than having no excuse at all. In fact, it works most of the time, so it's really not a bad investment.
