QUIZ: Can You Tell A Minor League Hockey Franchise From Some Gibberish We Made Up

I have a deep appreciation of minor league team nicknames. They have a delicate combination of local pride, awkward sponsorships, and disastrous attempts at cosmopolitanism. They can be politically incorrect, willfully silly, or completely incomprehensible. It’s proof that when left to their own devices, small-town America can get very, very weird.

So in tribute to our continent’s vast network of semi-pro sports, we’re starting a little quiz series. Each week you’ll find a selection of five hypothetical minor league team names. Four of these I’ve made up, but one of them is 100 percent real. This week we’re pulling from minor league hockey. Will you be able to spot the true relic of city-council absurdity in the midst of pretenders? Good luck!
