Votes, please

So the old man is making a last stab at hanging on to his youth by heading up a county rec. softball team this year, and he has to come up with a team name. Here is our short list. I’d love some votes, or other suggestions.

Midlife Crisis
A Few Good Men
Potato Bugs
Vocal Reverberation Under Spinal Pressure (“you know, VRUSP?")
the Borg
Oompa Loompas
Impending Doom
Flying Squids

and, because my kids insist I include it:
Plastic Dancing Banana Peels

I think 1, 2, 5, 7, and 9 are all *great.* And I have nothing better to suggest.

I think Plastic Dancing Banana Peels is too long, but PDBs now that has a nice ring to it. Or perhaps it should say something about losing your eye sight. :-) Or if I have to choose from the list, I like Oompa Loompas. Although I think they were short and Roger doesn't qualify as short.

I'd like to cast a vote for VRUSP or the Plastic Dancing Banana Peels. I don't see Roger as the type that would pick the latter, though.

I like impending doom and a few good men.

My suggestion:

Fear Factor.

It's all about taking the other team out mentally. Intimidation. Guys should feel tough when they are participating in sports.

Impending Doom has my vote. But I've always wanted to be on a team called "The Cannonade."

Barbara Bakes said...

So I've given it more thought and I think they should be The good, the bad, and the ugly. Or GBU for short. Cuz you know there's going to be some good plays, some bad plays and some really ugly plays.

Of course, everyone in the bleachers would be trying to figure out which PLAYER was good, bad or ugly.

Impending Doom sounds very cool and ominous.
