More Wimpy Names

Yesterday's item about a Minnesota school whose teams are named the "Awesome Blossoms" triggered a slew of e-mails that informed of us of more wimpy names. Nick S., of Oklahoma City, submitted Chickasha High School's "Fightin Chicks." Carson, of Frederick, Md., and Andrew, of Clarksburg, W. Va., submitted Poca High School's "The Dots." Get it? The Poca Dots. Kyle, of Boston, submitted Whittier College's "The Poets." Ryan Stanzel, of St Paul, Minn., submitted Cranberry High School's "Super Berries." Steve, of New York, submitted Scottsdale Community College's "Fighting Artichokes." Jeff Sirmons, of Orlando, submitted Logansport High School's "The Berries." Brian, of Des Moines, Iowa, submitted Minnetonka High School's "The Skippers." And finally, there was this e-mail from Bob Majeska, of Phoenix: "In the wimpiest team name category, how could you leave out the International Hockey League's Peoria Rivermen? Oh wait, "Rivermen" itself isn't a bad name. It's the name the franchise had before that -- the 'Prancers.' PRANCERS! A MALE professional HOCKEY team! For THREE YEARS! (1982-1984). Here's the Wiki link.
