We Need A New Name, You Can Help

baseballNow that I'm managing my slo-pitch team and in full control, it's time to right a wrong. I wrote about this wrong over a year ago and it continues to haunt me. Our nickname was Hooray For Everything and before the 2004 season it was changed to Raging Storm, a very unfunny, uncool and non-creative name for our slo-pitch team. An evil force named Stella spear-headed this decision and somehow got to then captain Andge. The rest is sad and ugly history.

We'll finish this season as Raging Storm, but I want a new nickname for the 2008 season. I'm also envisioning slick new black uniforms, but first we need to choose a new name.

Please suggest new nicknames in the comments of this entry. I'll start with the first few possibilities.

  • Crazy Diamonds
  • Ball and Biscuit
  • Triple Trouble
  • Cubically Contained
  • More Distortion
  • Teenage Angst

The TPS Reports might work...

Alex 'The Answer' Patino

I have a few suggestions

The Boonie Boners
Balls Deep
Lets Go Patio
Samuel and his White Cronies

I like the last one best!

Toronto Mike

You mean Alex and his White Cronies.

The Boonie Boners has a nice ring to it...

June 13, 2007 @ 1:02 PM

Mike Kic

I'm thinking the....

Degrassi Jr's
or maybe

School's Out

June 13, 2007 @ 1:18 PM

Toronto Mike

Dude, I love where you're going with this. Patino and I practically duked it out over Shane. I should blog about that...

How about:
- The Degrassi Jr. High's
- The Joey Jerimiah's
- The Zit Remedy

I vote for The Zit Remedy!!!!

I always liked the Shelbyville Shelbyvillains from the Simpsons. But the Cleveland Steamers would also be funny.

Stink My Butts!

Toronto Mike

I love it. My 3 favourite right now are:

1. Stink My Butts
2. The Zit Remedy
3. Teenage Angst

June 13, 2007 @ 2:07 PM

Mike Kic

How about the:

Ethnic Diverse
or
Patino and the Latinos

June 13, 2007 @ 2:55 PM


Jordy

I'm not entirely sure we're ethnically diverse enough to call ourselve "ethnic diverse"

however, i do like patino and the latinos

June 13, 2007 @ 3:24 PM

Alex

Patino and the Latinos...I LOVE it!
Though the Stink My Butts was pretty good.

June 13, 2007 @ 4:37 PM

Toronto Mike

Hey Patino, should I blog about our Degrassi fight?

Don't you think a Degrassi-themed nick name is appropriate?

June 13, 2007 @ 4:41 PM

I vote for:

The Baseball Team

June 13, 2007 @ 8:14 PM

Toronto Mike

I like it. Sort of like The Beer Store. Our name is what we are.

June 13, 2007 @ 9:11 PM

Alex

How about the Degrassi Fighters or Spike and her CIBC lover ;)

June 14, 2007 @ 9:58 AM

Toronto Mike

But dude, are you cool with me telling the story here? Screw it, I'm gonna tell it anyway.

June 14, 2007 @ 10:02 AM

Alex

I'm going to have it published.

June 14, 2007 @ 10:32 AM

Toronto Mike

You should write this entry. In fact, you should drop the deets from that wonderful night in the comments of this entry.

p.s. I'm sold on The Zit Remedy. I just have to sell the others.

June 14, 2007 @ 10:43 AM

Alex

You're the articulate one I'll leave the writing to you. I can draw pictures if needed.

team baseball....
simple, dry humor always wins..... and we are all winners

Throw some yellow stripes on the uni's and some decent yellow stirrups and call yourselves The Killer Bees.

June 15, 2007 @ 6:17 AM

Toronto Mike

And we could wear masks circa 1987 so the opposition couldn't tell which bee was which.

Of course, in Toronto, it would make more sense to call us the Wasps.

June 15, 2007 @ 8:43 AM

Rico

How about Captain Strikeout and the Foul Balls? ;-)

June 19, 2007 @ 9:04 AM

Toronto Mike

Another good name I thought of last night: Whatever

Set up some voting buttons or something and let's do this schtuff!!

Bayside Tigers!

June 20, 2007 @ 1:50 PM

Patino

How about the Splintered Bats!

June 21, 2007 @ 3:48 PM

Toronto Mike

We'll vote soon - I think Patino and the Latinos should be disqualified for being too politically incorrect. We don't want Miller banning us from city tournaments...

June 21, 2007 @ 3:52 PM

Matty's Girl

I LOVE FOUL BALLS!

June 24, 2007 @ 1:08 PM

Engell

Since we're dragging out this whole Degrassi Debate, I have a suggestion along those lines. Let's call our team "Where'd Boon go?" Or "Did Boon leave?"

Otherwise:

Mr.T...Ball
The Baseball Team
Top Gun (and we'll all take cheesy names like Goose and Ice Man!)
Menudo
RobArts Anti-Rage
Now I'm Just Being Silly...

June 26, 2007 @ 3:35 PM

Toronto Mike

Or, we could be ironic..

- Sedated
- Comfortably Numb
- Apathetic
- Whatever

Thanks for posting such a really great article - you don't understand the frustration I've been going through trying to get this to work. Any chance you will be doing a follow up to this post? Thanks again!
