what about patino and the latinos?

Toronto Mike

Sorry, Patino and the Latinos didn't make the cut. Now vote for one of the options!

June 27, 2007 @ 3:02 PM


OK since I am just getting in on this action, I would like to make a few other suggestions before the VOTE (since I am very seriously considering coming over to your team next year, but only if you will have me, and if you have a cool name). Here are my suggestions:

1. S*M*A*S*H

2. In The Face

3. Las Galletas (I typed "The Crackers" into a English-Spanish translator and this is what came up)

who died and made you god?

June 27, 2007 @ 3:03 PM


Ooh! "In the FACE!!"

June 27, 2007 @ 3:04 PM


S*M*A*S*H is the best so far, I had to vote for the default.

June 27, 2007 @ 3:23 PM


I can't take credit for S*M*A*S*H...I saw it online somewhere. I thought it would look cool on a uniform (perhaps Army green shirts)...

My preference is actually "In the FACE" just cause I like saying it..

June 27, 2007 @ 3:28 PM


for the record boon...i'm mad at you!

June 27, 2007 @ 3:32 PM

Toronto Mike

How could anyone be mad at me?

And Colleen, I assume you'll be a member of The Zit Remedy next season.

June 27, 2007 @ 3:48 PM


what about...

"controlling mike and his bat bitches" you like that boon?

June 27, 2007 @ 3:55 PM


Not if you're called that! Sorry...but even the giant purple t-shirt that I had to wear when I was on Randy's team is cooler than that name!

June 27, 2007 @ 3:55 PM

Toronto Mike

And Colleen, for two weeks I was accepting suggestions and you pipe up after I start the vote.

S*M*A*S*H is cool, but if we're going that root we should keep it CanCon.

And Jordy, my dear, Patino and the Latinos will offend Latinos everywhere.

June 27, 2007 @ 3:57 PM


Sorry...blame it on Mr. Engell...he didn't inform me of the "call for submissions" until today! I don't get your comment about CanCon.

June 27, 2007 @ 4:16 PM

Toronto Mike

I thought you were a regular reader? I'm disappointed... Maybe we won't let you play for The Zit Remedy...

S*M*A*S*H is based on an American movie / tv series. I suggest we base our name on a Canadian series. Degrassi, anyone? What's more Canadian than that?

June 27, 2007 @ 4:22 PM


and menudo wont offend latinos?...c'mon!!!!

June 27, 2007 @ 4:37 PM

Toronto Mike

Menudo is Latino? As God is my witness, I thought they were Irish.

June 27, 2007 @ 4:38 PM


fuck off

June 27, 2007 @ 4:52 PM

Toronto Mike

I still think they're Irish.

June 27, 2007 @ 4:56 PM


How the hell did fuck off make it past your filter?!!

June 28, 2007 @ 9:10 AM

Toronto Mike

The filter isn't aimed at humans - it's aimed at certain spam bots.

By the way, the problem with the filter was that part of the algorithm rejected the presence of 5 consonant in a row - but it counted 'y' as a consonant. Now there will be far less rejections.

June 28, 2007 @ 9:12 AM


OH! Well that explains it. I should stop using the word "xwqzy" in my posts. ;P

June 28, 2007 @ 11:06 AM

Toronto Mike

Adding "y" to the vowel list is going to dramatically reduce false positives.

June 28, 2007 @ 11:13 AM

Toronto Mike

Again, I'll know if you use a fake name - I know everything.

And write in votes make the baby Jesus cry.

June 28, 2007 @ 11:24 AM


If you want CanCon, how about we call ourselves:

Danger Bay-sball Team
Diamond Beach-combers
Boon of Green Gables
Kids in the Ball-field
The Outerfield Limits
-or (my personaly fave)-
Sharon, Lois and Boon

Personally, I don't like any of the names in the voting list enough to actually use as a team name...but that's just me! ;)

If I had to, I'd pick "Whatever" simply because....*shrug* whatever.

June 28, 2007 @ 11:40 AM

Alex Patino

I vote for Sharon, Lois and Boon!
Or how about Little Boon Big World

June 28, 2007 @ 11:48 AM

Toronto Mike

Skinnamarinkydinkydink. Skinnamarinkydoo. I - Love - You!

June 28, 2007 @ 11:52 AM

Alex Patino

Oh Oh Oh I got another one how about Bert, Ernie and Boon or Bert and Boonie or The Wiggles!!!!!!

June 28, 2007 @ 11:54 AM

Alex "Lets go Patio" Patino

I just called Fox to let them know about a certain someone who is using little Maggie Simpsons picture without consent...for shame!

June 28, 2007 @ 11:55 AM


I'm voting for Colleen's names. Either one! I like them both
