Funny local team names


Recommended Posts

I live in Montana - there is a small town here called Belfry who's local high school team is the Bats.

So I got to thinking of other funny local city names/teams combinations.

Such as:

The Helena Handbaskets

You guys got any ideas?

I went to Bellarmine College Prep in San Jose, CA for my high school... the Bellarmine BELLS (our mascot was a frowning bell with legs and arms, clutching its fist... scary?). Also in SJ, Live Oak HS's mascot? The Acorns.

My mother teaches at Grover Cleveland High School in Queens.  The team had to change it's name a year or two ago because it was "offensive," however, before the change, they were known as the ....

Grover Cleveland Indians!!!

I thought it was clever.

I also used to run track and X-Country against a city school named "Martin Luther Jr. High School."  We always got a kick out of it.  Were we competing against a High school named after Martin Luther King?  Or a Jr. High School named after Protestant Reformer Martin Luther?

I know the answer, but still, it was always funny.
