Isotopes of baseball Mon, Aug 02, 2010
The Albuquerque Isotopes are a minor league baseball team based in Albuquerque, New Mexico.  I verified this with my own eyes on a recent visit.  This is notable because (a) nearby Los Alamos National Laboratory was and is heavily involved with nuclear weapons research (isotope = nuclear thing), and (b) the team name was inspired by an episode of the Simpsons (the Simpsons' home town of Springfield has a nuclear power plant).  Yay science-TV-real-life! #sports
