100 lb. Club - OT: Your H.S. Team Name
10-07-2004, 11:30 PM
Hey everyone! HAPPY FRIDAY!
(Yes, Celina, I know that it's Thursday, but it is 10:25 and I imagine that when most people read this it will be Friday! :p :p :p )
It's our Home-Coming this weekend! Our H.S. team name is the "Oredockers" because there used to be a lot of ore docks in town; ore boats and railroads were our big thing back in the day.
What was your team's name in school? Was it something generic like The Wildcats or The Bears? Or was it something off-beat like The Flippers or The Midgets? (Both local team names!) :cool:

We were the Pirates, what is more interesting is my college which was the Anteaters.
10-07-2004, 11:41 PM
Hee Hee-- We were the Koalas. Can you think of anything more fierce and intimidating?! Grrrrr! Watch out, we'll "cute" you to death!

We were the Dolphins -- imagine a cartoon dolphin with a mean looking face - that was our mascot
10-08-2004, 12:04 AM
We were the "Green Wave" -- go, Greenies!!!

Fitbabe - Dolphins with a mean face... I just can't picture it.
Well, our HS had two teams. The Lions. Which was every team but the team I was on. I was a swimmer and the swim team just couldn't picture a lion doing the backstroke so, we ended up being The River Rats (my town was on a river and if you've ever lived on a river, you know the river rat legends). We even had a team mascot - a cute little Rattie that hung out on our shoulders.

I was also on the swim team and we were the Nelson Neptunes and my high school was the L.V. Rogers Bombers, and dispite the name they did REALLY well ;) MY college team were the Falcons, and my university swim team was the UBC dolphins, thats a lot of different schools/teams I was on from age 17-22!!

My high school team was the Hawks (back in NY).
My daughter's high school team is the Lobo's.

My high school team was the Crestwood Red Devils

My high school team was the Muckers.
10-08-2004, 08:31 AM
My high school was the Panthers.
My son is in 7th grade (Jr/Sr. high) and they are the Indians.

I was "sent" to Catholic (yes, I have issues :lol: ) we were the Saints.. what a joke that was! :rofl:
I never payed attn to sports in university ... Americans are much bigger in school sports then Canadians.
10-08-2004, 09:29 AM
we were the Chieftans :) Then in college I think we were the Falcons.
10-08-2004, 11:33 AM
We were the Seahawks. Those dang pro football guys stole our name!
In college, I started out a Beaver, then graduated a Viking. Then further college education made me a Ram and finally a Bronco.
Love the Anteaters, Nelie. May I ask where that is? A Geoduck (it's a type of clam) is the team name for one of the liberal arts colleges in my state. I thought that was one of the strangest names I've heard, but I'm liking Anteater, too.
10-08-2004, 11:42 AM
Sheila, the Anteaters is the University of California, Irvine. Supposedly all UC mascots are supposed to be a type of bear but I believe UC Santa Cruz are the Banana Slugs (don't ask me).
10-08-2004, 11:55 AM
Banana Slugs?? I'd love to see the Geoducks play the Banana Slugs. What a hoot! Can you imagine the mascot costumes on those teams?! LOL!
10-08-2004, 02:12 PM
In High school, out team was the "indians" and in junior high, they were called braves or lady braves,..lol
In college we were the Lions... nothing too interesting. I know hubby's high school was the Garnets. I always thought that was odd, but not near as odd as Banana Slugs,...LOL
10-08-2004, 02:39 PM
Ours was the Bear. How original.
My college's mascot is the Gopher. L-A-M-E :lol:
I think anteaters wins. hehe
10-08-2004, 03:28 PM
In high school we were the wolverines (and cubs) but years ago they were the frogs (go tadpoles for junior high) and before that the owls. what a hoot. (j/k)
in college OSU Cowboys (go pokes—never figured that one out) and then graduated an Aggie (also another nickname for the cowboys of OSU)
10-08-2004, 03:48 PM
We were the Sand Lizards! Banana Slugs? Wow, that's bad. :lol: Where do they come up with some of these?!!
10-09-2004, 05:10 PM
No one is going to comment on the hilarity of a team named "The Muckers"?!?!?
The kids in my high school would LOVE to play a team with that name. :)
Gophers aren't that lame! In 2 years I'll be a badger! :)
10-09-2004, 09:24 PM
I am almost embarrased to tell you mine.... We were the Mapletown Maples. our mascot was a Maple Leaf... Oh yeah, thats fierce isn't it!?!
We were made fun of ALL the time!!
I went to college at West Virginia University. We were the Mountaineers.
10-10-2004, 10:32 AM
In high school, we were the Dragons. In college, I was a Rebel.
Not far from here, there's a university who are the Fighting Okra.
My aunt spent her freshman year at a private Jesuit college in Washington state. They were the Missionaries. Their campus newspaper was called "The Missionary Position." :lol:
