Editor's Note: Oh man, do I feel you pain, prophet. Who else struggles with this annually? - BG
My name is prophet, and I am a fantasy football name loser.
By this, i mean that I'm bloody terrible at naming my fantasty football teams. I've always struggled with it; I pick names that I think look good, or funny, or cool, and they wind up being just so, so bad.
here's my 2010 and 2011 team names.
- COMPLETELY ENRAGED [FUUU] (avatar was a FUUUUUU-face) - just dumb, but i had to come up with something fast. half the league was little cousins anyways.
- Cows Rarely Aren't Pooping [CRAP] (avatar was a moocow taking a dump) - my sister lives in texas and complains about the herds of cattle, but this was bad too.
- Texas Chainsaw Massaquoi [TCS] (avatar was the google image) - funny in it's own way, but tired, and Massaquoi hasn't done anything in so long that half the people in the league didn't know who he was.
- Rex Ryan's Foot Party [YUM] (avatar was the Agony of De-Feet headline) - funny for a bit, but the only one who really got a chuckle was the only jets fan.
so, i need help. i will be in a minimum of three leagues this year, and i need at least three solid team names. i prefer puns, and they need to be somewhat family-friendly. KSK's list is always terrible so i have to avoid it.
i was debating The Ginger Hammer (in honor of our fearless NFL commissioner), but beyond that i'm lost. other topics that interest me for names include Sam Hurd, purple syzzurp, LeGarrette Blount's wake-up service, Ryan Tannehill's wife, and off-season antics.
