Sports team names aren’t really the height of creativity. The usual process was to find something that accurately captures the spirit of your team, like a fierce and dangerous animal such as the tiger or the lion, or a collective name for a group of fierce individuals such as the Vikings, and attache your city name or sponsor in front of it. It’s simple really, Minnesota + Vikings = Minnesota Vikings – the name conjures up fierceness, bravery, and strength, which often translates onto the field. Detroit + Tigers = Detroit Tigers, a team of strong, fierce, and cunning baseball players.
But there’s just some teams that fail miserably at this, here’s 10 of them...
The Key School Obezags
Made-up names are fine, usually. And although it’s usually reserved for punk bands, the Key School found a way to not only make up a name but also make it up from something that is absolutely non-athletic at all. If you still haven’t figured it out, Obezags is an anagram of gazebo, yes those little house things you find in rich people’s gardens where they usually hang out at night gazing at the stars longing for their lost love. That kind of gazebo. I mean seriously, you named your team after a garden structure that does absolutely nothing.
