You Think Your Team Has A Crappy Name?

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by The Golden Boy, May 5, 2005.

  1. Every time I try to type a reply I run into that whole 'political correct' thing that spawned this evil mess to begin with.

    Cracker Cats are dudes living in trailer parks near
    Ocala FL. ( Ta-booom)

    GOLD is lame. Warriors was fine, and certainly had nothing
    to do per se with Native Americans, any more so than the
    Roundheads, or Viking warriors.

    Dartmouth, alma mater of Peter McSmug, did this back when
    my brother was in Grad school there. They are no longer
    the Dartmouth Indians, the are the "Big Green". Hahvud uses
    Crimson as a nick. Perhaps Marquette is trying to emulate
    the elitist attitude. Go for the Gold! Beat Crimson! Lame.
  5. Williams College, they are the Effs. What an eff is, is a purple and gold cow, named after the founder of the school.

    We're the Sabres, good thing we go by the name of the school though.
  6. Marquette Gold?

    The Jesuits, while very good educators, aren't the most creative bunch, I suppose.

    Though I honestly believe our NFL team, the Houston Texans, is the stupidest pro sports name this side of the Phillies.
  7. soccer teams and WNBA teams tend to have the dumbest names ever.
  8. Oh yeah, whoever said go sharks, the Wild are better, our logo is sweet(but our 3rd jersey's suck sadly).

    A lot of people don't know, but hippos are vicious, vicious animals. Boat capsizing, passenger mauling, victim drowning, tusk impaling creatures. And extremely territorial.

    Do NOT mess with the hippos.

    No, really.

  10. I think the oddest name in the AFL teams list is the Fremantle Dockers. Freo's a port city (I think), so it makes sense though.

    Another one could be the Pt. Adelaide Power... I'm not sure why they picked that.

    Nice call Brad. I bought myself a UCSC hat. I also got myself a UC-Irvine Anteaters hat. I collect hats of colleges with cool mascot names.

  12. Especially when they're hungry, hungry.

    I can't remember what college it is, but one college has the "Whirlies," which is supposed to be a baby toronado.

    My high school had the worst ever, I thought. The plural of elk is 'elk'. As in: one elk, two elk. Yet somehow we were the Burleson Elks.

    I thought that was terrible. Even worse than the Weatherford Kangaroos. Then I married a woman, whose school had the Atlanta Rabbits...That's right. Rabbits. Somehow that makes elkS a bit less lame by comparison.

    I am also amused by the team from my favorite place in the world. In Kerrville, Texas, there is a team named, not after an animal, but after part of an animal. The Tivy Antlers.

    Yeah, I have gone out a few times to catch some geoducks. I don't eat them, but some of my friends do.

    We play basketball at the TESC gym. I don't mind the gym, but I don't care much for the "Greeners". Greener = student who attends TESC. Usually the earthy tree-hugging, granola head types who wear birkenstocks and shower once or twice a month.

    How about the Long Beach State Dirtbags?

    What does a Dirtbag do? It's like gold---it just sits there.

    I think any college or university that chooses a non-plural name for their mascot should lose their accreditidation (sp?).

    The Tulsa Golden Hurricane?
    The Stanford Cardinal?

    Gimme a break.

    The Baylor Bears are where it's at. Best mascot out there.

    LOL I didn't notice you were from Lacey...

    I went to WWU... we had Fairhaven College, which was a more hippie version of TESC... They wanted to take over one of the dining halls (of 3... for 4000 students who live on campus) and turn it into a dance studio for that part of the university...
