Worst Sports Team Nickname

Postby smoovethug » Tue Jul 24, 2007 12:53 am

A friend and I were having this discussion a while back about what team in sports has the worst nickname. It could be because it's not threatening, dumb, or just weird. For example, the New Jersey Nets? A piece of equipment? It's not even equipment really! That would be like a baseball team named the Arkansas Warning Tracks. Your thoughts...

The Montgomery Biscuits, DRays AA team, current home of Reid Brignac and Evan Longoria.

I get that teams are searching for "unique" names these days as opposed to the standards, but.....Biscuits? Ugh.

I'd rather be a biscuit than an artichoke...

we should probably stick to professional teams since my intramural basketball team name will take the cake otherwise.

What the hell's wrong with Sox? And Knicks is a characterful name that identifies the team strongly with the place they play, so I quite like it- it's no worse than 'Hoosiers' or 'Dodgers.'

Utah Jazz is a pet peeve of mine. That nickname was fine when the franchise was in New Orleans, but having been to Salt Lake City a couple of times... I'm pretty sure it's the city you would LEAST associate with jazz in the entire US.

Someone 'splain to me why they didn't just start fresh with a new name when they moved out there...

---

also, I think Panthers is one of the coolest team nicknames... partially because panthers are cool animals, and it was also my high school's nickname. B-)
