Hooray For Everything

BaseballTwo years ago today I was part of a decision that haunts me to this day. We in Raging Storm voted to change our name from Hooray For Everything.

Hooray For Everything was not only a fantastic name for a slo-pitch team, but it was a successful one. We won three championships in four seasons. I previously discussed the origin of the name, a handle given to a group of "well-groomed young go-getters" on "The Simpsons". It was a good name, a solid name, an ironic name, and two years ago today we voted to change it to the soulless Raging Storm.

Not a day goes by that I don't regret that decision. Hooray For Everything, you're deeply missed.

The key to a team name is to pick an obscure reference from a show that will never get old. It takes a true fan of The Simpsons and a true sense of humour to appreciate that name. To everyone else, it just sounds lame. I picked that name and I thank you for your support.
