Name the Flint, Michigan IBL Contest

Recommended Posts

Help me name the Flint, Michigan team for the IBL. Currently we are the Flint Gems, and we are 3-10 in the standings. Perhaps with a new name and at least a franchise player we can get a good winning perception next season. Plus no Flint Stones please no. The names that I see and I like will go into the polls board and the winner will be the new Flint name. Right now the Flint Falcons are one of my names.

I intended to give you a list of at least several names, but I am so happy with the following one that's the only one I'll list:

I wanted a name that celebrated some of Flint's history, especially a nod to better times since the town has had a rough run of it for awhile. So, without further ado, I give you the

FLINT IGNITION

The name is a nod to their rich automotive history, and a play on the stone flint which is an exceptional tool for IGNITING a fire.

According to Wikipedia, Flint is nicknamed "Buick City". I did research and chose names based off of current and former Buick car models.

Flint Skylarks

Flint Regals

Flint Wildcats

Flint Roadmasters (it's a stretch, but it's original)

I like the Skylarks and the Regals, also I want to add the Flint Tanks(no reference to the Toronto Tanks) because of the fact that Flint was an extensive maker in tanks in World War II

Yeah, it was Buick City. But that was before the Buick plant closed.

In my opinion, don't even bother with the poll. El_Duderino hit on the mark. Flint Ingnition is one of the most creative names I've seen. Well done, Duderino, well done. I'd love to see a concept of that name. But that's for a later day.
