I Cant Speak For All Philadelphians: Best Names in Sports

12 Jun

Philly has the best names in sports,. Thee End. We are rivaled only by Texas (maybe NY) in sports names. We have relevance, originality and just plain better than your sports team-ness. Our one City is the better than states upon states of names. Here are some of the best names in sports (to me). If you have a case against the Eagles then think that Philly used to be the capital of the USA…

Philadelphia – Eagles, Flyers, Phillies, Rage, Sixers, Phantoms, Kixx, Quakers (old hockey), Union, Independence, Wings, Feedom and Soul.

Once again all Texas  teams do well on name. First loser, second place.

Texas –  Cowboys,  Texans,  Desperados (now defunct), Vigilantes,Amarillo Dusters, Drillers, Mavericks, Rockets (Houston we have a problem), Spurs, Tornado, Astros,  Rangers…you get the picture? The teams below are relevant to their respective City (to me) and unique slash some what original in theme to represent their City.

    WuShock is the most terrifying mascot ever. It is a shock of wheat that can walk and talk and kick ass.

    It is based off of shocking wheat, a lot of wheat grows in Kansas, that makes us wheat shockers.

    It makes just as much sense as that stupid hillbilly cornhusker.

    : )

      Jennifer is correct. Back in the day, the students would work the wheat fields in the summer, shocking wheat. Exactly the same as the Nebraska logo for its state crop. But I can understand why someone in Philly doesnt know much about it.
