Bad Sports Team Names August 18, 2006

File this under “15 year-old-boy-humor from a 40-year-old-man.” As I said, I’m 40 now, so I’m not going to grow up much more. :-) 

Heard about two of them:

The Fighting Whites – The team website seems to be down, but not the tee-shirt shop. Either this is a really good spoof, or it is, as people were claiming to me, a team put up by an Indian college.

The McMaster University water polo team, named the Bators. I s*** you not. Look at the experts web page… (search for it). The official web page, however, makes no mention of a team name… Ha!

I went to Brown, and up on College Hill is the Rhode Island School of Design. Certainly not a sports powerhouse, but I invite you to have a look at their team names:

Their hockey team is called the Nads, and their basketball team is less subtlt than that.

IIRC, the Fighting Whites was a multiculti jape that never quite caught on.

The idea was that the Oppressed Indigenous People would name their sports teams after White people “and we’ll see how you like it.”

Nobody gave a crap one way or the other, so the whole thing just fizzled.
