I think the two dumbest names are easily the Thunderhawks and the Blaze. Note that both of those two are new names given because you can't call your team the Indians or the Braves anymore. <p></p><i></i>

Petey1321,<br>Right on! By far the two most pathetic names. Very impressed with your line of thinking on two class and P.C. names. Good work. <p></p><i></i>

The name of a Hockey Team should reflect qualities of <br><br>power, grace, agility, cunning, speed, persistance, <br><br>tradition and the like. The 'Spuds' has to be one of, if <br><br>not the worst, name ever given to a Hockey Team in the <br><br>state of Minnesota. 'Mighty Ducks' in the NHL ain't much <br><br>better.<br><br>L<!--EZCODE EMOTICON START 8o --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/im ... s/nerd.gif ALT="8o"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> <!--EZCODE EMOTICON START 0] --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/im ... /alien.gif ALT="0]"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> E, SL<!--EZCODE EMOTICON START 8o --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/im ... s/nerd.gif ALT="8o"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> PSH<!--EZCODE EMOTICON START 8o --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/im ... s/nerd.gif ALT="8o"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> <!--EZCODE EMOTICON START 8o --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/im ... s/nerd.gif ALT="8o"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> TER.<br><br>(...a legend in his <!--EZCODE EMOTICON START 8o --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/im ... s/nerd.gif ALT="8o"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> wn mind...) <p></p><i></i>

I don't know whether this counts. AHA is now the "Stars". Back when I was in high school (mid 70's) they were called the "Co-Stars". What the hell did that mean? <p></p><i></i>

<!--EZCODE EMOTICON START :rollin --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/im ... s/roll.gif ALT=":rollin"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> Unfortunately, I have to agree with you on this one, slapshooter - even though I am from the Moorhead area and a big Spuds fan. Whoever came up with it was original, but it's certainly not flattering.<br><br>On the flip side, it is fun to watch Moorhead play Fargo South and wait for the annual 'potato toss' onto the ice (as long as nobody gets hit by the flying potatoes) by the Fargo South high school students, which always gets them tossed out of the rink. <!--EZCODE EMOTICON START :lol --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/im ... /laugh.gif ALT=":lol"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> <p></p><i></i>

I think Spuds is a sweet name i mean come on when you hear Spuds you dont forget it Moorhead should be proud of it it is unique and cool I always loved watching the great Moorhead teams play and hear those famous words from the PA Anouncer " Now Let's Meet The Spuds" it is great. And I think Either the Spartans of Orono or the Magic of Monitcello are the worst and I rate the spuds as one of the best but it is just my opioin. <p></p><i></i>

From the AHA Website:<br><br>"The biggest change of all occurred in September of 1972. The Academy became a co-educational school. ... <br> With the coming of boys, one other big change was seen. The Angies became the co*Stars and varsity athletics was born."<br><br>But man, what a stupid name to announce that they are now a co-educational school. Thank god they got rid of that!!! Especially since I call myself a "Stars" FAN!! <br><br>GO HOLY ANGELS!! <p></p><i></i>

To add to the STARS name. I was a Co*star, and the only way that we could describe it was "that it was something that you put a hot Tscholl on". No you should be really mixed up. I was glad that they changed the name. Every year I was there we tried to change the name to something better like the AHA Devils, or I had a friend who wanted the Holy Angels Pagans. Didn't fly. The symbol for the Co*stars was an angel.<br> <p></p><i></i>

'the spuds' , i agree are one of the worst named sport teams...but hey- those baked "spuds" at their games aren't so bad <!--EZCODE EMOTICON START :) --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/im ... /smile.gif ALT=":)"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> kind of unique! it is sad how they are taking away the indian nicknames. i do not see these as being offensive, in fact- i would be honored...especially if the team representing the nickname is classy and respectful. look at the ralph engalstad arena at und! who wouldn't take pride in that?? it is the classiest and the finest arena that i have ever seen. <p></p><i></i>

While there is really nothing wrong with Blue Jackets, how does it connect to Hibbing? When I think of Hibbing, sailors don't usually come to mind.<br><br>I never much cared for names like the Ramsey Rams either. But Blaze maybe the worst. <p></p><i></i>

Holy Angels

Post by doeislandguy » Wed Jan 22, 2003 10:29 pm

I remember something else about Holy Angels, they used to have a button with a hockey player on it and it said -- Academy of the HOLY ANGELS - don't let the good name fool you. It was back in the Co-Star days. Angies has to take the cake, I'm sure that will make a section 5AA comeback. <!--EZCODE EMOTICON START :D --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/im ... /happy.gif ALT=":D"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> <p></p><i></i>
