All of us, no matter the background, no matter the region, have a *cough* less-than-stellar *cough* team name in our life.
My High School mascot, for example? The "Dons".
How weak-sauce is that? Basically, we were named for wealthy Spanish landowners of significance. Kind of a tough name to get pumped about: "Go, pseudo-royal-blooded-landowners, go!"
So let's hear it: Who's had the worst team name out there? (And University of California Santa Barbara Banana Slugs...you don't count: You choose that name willingly.)
EDITED TO NOTE: Thanks to the kind, gentle, timid e-mails of 10,000 UC Santa Barbara and UC Santa Cruz alums, I am kindly, gently, timidly reminded that it is UCSC, not UCSB, with the "Banana Slugs" mascot.
You would think that I, having graduated from UCSD, would know that.... but alas, I am at long last revealed to be a moron. :)
