    She's also a Richmond Spider (from her college playing days). 

    What's the best college team name? Richmond has to be up there. UC Santa Cruz Banana Slugs also bumps. And Wichita State's mascot has had an urban dictionary-esque fueled resurgence. 

    Indiana high schools have the Frankfort Hot Dogs and the Speedway Sparkplugs, which is the creme de la creme in my book.

    Probably need a separate thread for team names, then one for team mascots.

    In the paper today was "This date in Baseball History" indicating that in 1911 Battle Creek of the South Michigan League turned two triple plays in the first two innings against Grand Rapids. 

    Intrigued, I looked up the circuit to find these nicknames:

    Adrian Fencevilles
    Jackson Convicts
    Mount Clemens Bathers
    Kalamazoo Celery Pickers
    Saginaw Wa-was
    Flint Vehicles
    South Bend Benders
    Bay City Beavers

    I would pay good money to see a Benders vs. Beavers tilt.

    Not sure how we missed the Hoopeston (IL) Cornjerkers

    I think UC-Irvine Anteaters and Evergreen State Geoducks are pretty great.

    The worst?  NYU Violets

    Heidelberg Student Princes will always be the worst
  • BlackbirdBlackbird Off-Campus Slummer

    Texas High Schools:

    Hutto Hippos
    Ralls Rabbits
    Port Lavaca Fighting Sand Crabs
    Winters Blizzards
    Itasca Wampus Cats

    I went to Junior High in Austin.  One of my good friends who lived outside town went to Hutto, and we both had numerous laughs that he was a Hippo.

  • Must add my favorite high school mascot

    Yuma Criminals

    At the beginning of football games, they follow a police car as they break out of the prison gates.
