2011 Team Name Review

Softball team names can be meaningful, shallow, traditional, clever, or politically incorrect. With the year almost over, I thought it would be fun to review some 2011 team names I encountered:

Softball Insider Rated  Best Team Name - Old School
While the team's roster and performance was in transition this year, their name in and of itself is so cool as "there is no school like the old school"

Softball Insider Rated Best A96 Team Name - The Hustlers

It's all about the Hustle. Every player on this team should always Hustle.

Softball Insider Rated Identity Crisis Name - Pray for Rain
Championship Team where everyone wore Cyclone shirt, but team name was Pray for Rain.

Softball Insider Rated Most Responsible Name Trojans
Team name had nothing to do with condoms but subliminally it sent a good message.

Softball Insider Rated Almost Got it Right Name.. Almost - Diesel Rangers

The team is not only close to winning on the field, but its also close to getting its name right. In 2010 the team was called Diesel Express. However, it had previously been called Lawn Rangers. So in 2011 the names were merged to Diesel Rangers. Damn. Almost. Lawn Rangers is so much more New York City Central Park symbolic.

Softball Insider Rated Best B96 Corny Generic Name - Bravery
Bravery ??? Cmon that name would never be allowed above 96th street, but lo and behold it proved worthy as the team dealt with massive internal and external challenges to show true honor and courage.

Softball Insider Rated - Most Corporate -  Charter Fabric & LawyerTime
"The Man" means fully sponsored.

Softball Insider Rated - Bridge and Tunnel Award  - West NY
OK never mind that this 10-0 team joked in the playoffs, at least we saved the league and let everyone know we were still loyal to NY even if we played in Jersey City.

Softball Insider Rated - Best Neighborhood Name -  Hell's Kitchen
 Even the life long Hell's Kitchen resident would admit the neighborhood has under gone massive turnover but the name still has a special tough NY meaning associated with it. This team also gets kudos for best colors as their pumpkin orange fit the season.

Finally, I don't want to forget you COED players out there so
