Today we salute teams who have no sense of modesty or humility… even though they really should.
Top 5 – Most Boastful Team Names
5. Brampton Excelsiors (MSL) –
Excelsior can conjure up many different interpretations depending on who you talk to. Whether you take it to mean a spaceship from Star Trek 3, wood wool, or, like me, just picture Martin Prince and his band of nerdy friends proudly proclaiming “Excelsior!”
… the fact remains none of them have anything to do with soccer or sports in general.
4. Kannapolis Intimidators (Minor League Baseball) –
Man this is a messed up logo. You’ve got a letter K that seems to have developed a case of rabies as well of some sort of mutation that resulted in a hand on its head.
3. Arkansas Fantastics (defunct ABA) –
Perhaps if the team had lived up to their overly exuberant name they might not have ended up folding.
2. Anderson Champions (defunct ABA) –
The ironic thing is that Anderson never won a championship or even made the playoffs for that matter. How embarrassing…
Winners: Arkansas Tech University Wonder Boys (NCAA) –
Holy rusted nails Batman, what a hilarious team name! Perhaps it’s their love of spandex. Perhaps it’s their affinity for ambiguous relationships with older men also dressed in spandex. I don’t know, I don’t judge… well that’s a lie… but more to the point of the matter, this team name does make it seem as though Arkansas Tech is tooting their own horn a bit too much. Which is actually odd because you’d think a team named the Wonder Boys would be more likely to be tooting each others… well you get where I’m going with this.
Dishonourbale Mention: Lexington Legends (Minor League Baseball)
