for a fast, sometimes explosive hockey team. Sportswriters can make good use of it in their headlines, win or lose.
Team names can be more controversial. The Orofino Maniacs of Orofino High School claim that their name is for their maniacal enthusiasm - nothing to do with the nearby Idaho State Mental Institution. And of course the Bombers from a high school in the TriCities have (had?) a mushroom cloud for their logo commemorating nearby Hanford Nuclear Reservation. Ouch!
The all time misfit name for a team had to be when the New Orleans NBA team moved to Salt Lake City and became the Utah Jazz - now that did not fit.
