Fantasy Team Names

Postby Arlo » Thu Jul 31, 2003 1:49 pm

We're planning on running an article about fantasy team names - while you're posting your roster, why not let us know your own favorite, and what makes it unique?

Team names and background can either be posted here, or sent to me via private message or email (to mailto:arlo@fantasybaseballcafe.com). We'll be including several of the submissions in the article.

Look forward to seeing some creative names! ;-D

Was that the right e-mail listed? I thought it would be something along the lines of mailto:arlo@fantasybaseballcafe.com instead of @fantasybaseball.com. I may be wrong though since you could have registered both domains ;-D

My usual team name is,

Pomakai .. Its Hawaiian for luck. Because to get yourself through a fantasy baseball season in first place, you have to remind your self that it take's a little pomakai, everyday. Injuries this year to Vina, Kearns, Prior and Beckett have made this season very un pomakai. :-o
