Name Game

Last month, the National Basketball Association filed for the rights to six team names for the league’s new Oklahoma City-based franchise. They are: Barons, Bison, Energy, Marshalls, Thunder and Wind.

This whole naming process got me thinking how much fun it would be to name my own sports team. But, as luck would have it, I’m not very creative. So I took to the internet for ideas. I found a list of the
wimpiest team names, and a categorized collection of the most ridiculous team names.

Highlights from the later list include the South Dakota School of Mines HardRockers, and the very popular soccer team, the Thailand Tobacco Monopoly.

Those are much better than anything I could come up with, so I think I’d just go with the Tobacco Monopoly and hope I didn’t get sued for copyright infringement. Our team slogan would be "smoke ’em if you got ’em."
