Seeking awesome fantasy team names

We’re working on a cool new project and we need help from the Ninja Army.

In the comments, please post the favorite fantasy team name you’ve ever used and the favorite one you’ve ever seen used by an opponent.

If you remember, please specify if the name was used in a fantasy baseball or a fantasy football league.

    @Sockonfl: Thanks for the nominations.
    I’m only going to provide my name because my favorites are all in the leagues I play in and hopefully a lot of those folks post here.

    The favorite one I used was Rabid Lemurs.
    I’ve used it in both sports, but it originated in Fantasy Baseball.

    Favorite fantasy football team name I’ve seen:
    Amish Rake Fighters

    Favorite fantasy baseball team name I’ve seen:
    Honey Nut Ichiros

    My favorite team name:
    I usually used Paige’s PicklePackers after my daughter and because it just has a ring to it when you say it out loud, but I’m nominating my other fantasy alter ego name: the Schizophrenic Smurfs

  6. Rob

    I liked the one I saw last year, Roid Rage

  7. Christian

    Ego Bruisers because no one likes to lose to a girl (wife’s team name)

  8. Jay-Mo

    This one is tough for me as I usually go the uncreative route and pick some combinaton of player names from the teams I root for … i.e. Carter Mosebys, Cito Alomars, Duper de Henne and Csonka Warfields.

    The one I’d throw out there is Canseco’s Pool Party for a baseball team I had a few years back when Canseco’s book came out detaling his steroid evenings with Clemens and his wife by the pool.

    A new one I’d thought of earlier today – Big Ben’s Wing Men – whatta think? Feel free to use it, especially in leagues with diehard Steelers fans!

    The best one I ever saw was a football team in a Sporting News League I was in four or five years ago … Oops, My Dick Jauron Out My Pants

  9. Phillip

    Sandyhook Spidermonkeys was a team a friend named before Talladega Nights and the dinner scene.
