Verbs as team nicknames

"Forward" can be a noun (for instance: the position); tt can also be an adjective meaning "in a front-facing direction" (as in "forward motion") or even meaning "pushy" (as in "he behaved in a forward manner"). Though I think its primary meaning is as an adverb, as in "to move forward".  Let's have more adverbs!  I want to see the New York Very and the Cleveland Unfortunately.

 

"What team do you cheer for?"

 

"Cleveland Unfortunately."

 

 

It's perfect.

"Sunderland Unfortunately" is what sounds like it could be a team.

San Diego Loyal

That's actually an adjective, nothing else.

The problem is so many common verbs can also be used as similar nouns:

 

RUN - I run every day.  I went on a run yesterday.

KICK - Watch me kick the ball. The kick is good!

SURF - I will surf on my surfboard while the surf is rolling in. 

FLY - I will fly to New York to buy a fancy new pair of pants. There is a fly on the fly of the new pants!😜

And we all know about the buffalo sentence.

 

It's sort of remarkable that some airline could come up with a slogan like "more awesome your go!" and our brains can correctly parse it as "ameliorate the conditions of your transit!" before moving on to the greater question of why everyone in advertising seems to want to talk like a retarded baby.
