    Re: Oddest Nicknames In Sports (Individuals or Teams)

    Team: Minor league hockey team from Macon, Georgia. Their mascot is a whooping crane. The name of the team is the Macon Whoopee. It must be Chuck Woolery's favorite team.



    Individual: Pitcher Dennis Boyd (played for Boston, Montreal, and Texas). Never heard of him? Perhaps you know him better by his nickname. I still have no idea what the nickname is supposed to mean, though.



    To JAX 1.22 (780 pts)
    To PIT 2.36 (540 pts) + 3.67 (255 pts) = 795 pts

    2.36 OLB Eli Harold 6'3" 247 Virginia
    2.56 TE Clive Walford 6'4" 251 Miami
    3.67 CB Alex Carter 6'0" 196 Stanford
    3.87 CB Ifo Ekpre-Olomu 5'9" 192 Oregon
    4.121 OT Donovan Smith 6'6" 338 Penn St
    5.160 FS Adrian Amos 6'0" 218 Penn St
    6.199 WR Stefon Diggs 6'0" 195 Maryland
    6.212 OLB Kyle Emanuel 6'3" 255 North Dakota St
    7.239 RB John Crockett 6'0" 217 North Dakota St

    Since proudpittsburgher beat me to Macon Whoopee, I'll have to go with a different team, this time on the college level.

    The UC Santa Cruz Banana Slugs

    Well those white college ball caps that had the word "COCK" written in red letters made their name impossible to take notice.

    Well a buddy of mine used to live in Columbia for a time and he would go to USC games and people down there would have bumper stickers on their cars and t-shirts on with the expression "Nobody can lick our 'C*cks."

    Disturbing, but my friend says it's true.

    No offense to the Trojan Nation, D, but those good-ole-boys in S. Carolina get a little feisty...and they have guns

    I'll take your comment on USC under advisement for future reference

    BTW, since you're in GB, UWGB is known as the Phoenix. What gives with them? Having the name of a warm weather place hasn't ever worked to keep GB warm in the winter.

    OTOH, I don't know too many Vikings in Cleveland, even though that's the Cleveland State nickname.
