League Names

Postby lifeform » Thu Feb 12, 2004 4:33 pm

I am the commish of my 12-team Yahoo league, and I'm thinking about what to use as our league name this year.

Our first year, we used the name of the company we work for. Boring.

Last year, we used The Justice League.

What are some creative league names you've encountered?

Anyone out there with an especially interesting/funny/unusual name for their fantasy baseball league?

I like making fantasy sports league names include some terminology about the sport. For example one of my football leagues was called "H Shaped Uprights". As far as team name I like to make it funny. Last year in my fantasy baseball league I was "Halter Plays All 9" and another guy was "Cecil Steals Home".

Our league name is Ghetto League Baseball, because where I live people act as though they are in the ghetto, but actually live in the suburbs in very nice $300,000 homes.

My team name is the Polish Catholics in honor of a statement that my friend Steve made one time we were playing basketball. I had a curfew of 11 pm on weeknights in HS, and I left one night, and my friends told Steve, "That's what happens when you have strict Catholic parents."

And Steve replies with : "Catholic? I thought he was Polish."

I'm in the third year of a league known as "The Bush League II"

The guy who named it is a huge fan of Bush (the person, not......oh, nevermind) and Bush League II was fitting. Apparenty there was never a Bush League I, so I don't know why we're II. It's a mystery.....one of those things you don't ask why, you just accept it :-D

Usually I just name the league after the school where we all went. As far as team names go, some of my personal bests are Fat Blind Kid's team and the Bastard Toadflaxes (which is actually a type of plant)

Last year we were Gamecocks Branching Out...Thats where we all went to school...South Carolina if you didnt know. And because Baseball was kind of new to our group. Anyway. Im not sure what to be this year. I was hoping to come up with something really cool to be our permanent name so I can put it on the trophy. The Carolina League sounded good. But isnt funny enough. Its a tough thing to decide.

This is my current team name and it sure seems to work on Cub fans, "Hi from Steve Bartman's Florida Condo."
