Ten silliest North American Soccer League club names August 11, 2010

Posted by Alex Tomchak Scott in U.S. soccer.
  1. Jacksonville Tea Men. Little more need be said.
  2. Tampa Bay Rowdies. Alternate name: Ugly American FC.
  3. Oakland Stompers. There must be some reference I’m not getting. I’m picturing blue-clad toddlers stomping around the pitch in a huff. Or maybe just a very violent team.
  4. San Diego Jaws. I’m very threatened by the idea of a bunch of disembodied jaws.
  5. Miami Toros. How hyperforeignized.
  6. Minnesota Strikers. Must have played with a very awkward formation.
  7. Washington Diplomats (Dips for short). Unfortunate nickname.
  8. Las Vegas Quickslivers.
  9. Calgary Boomers. Boomer: def: a person or thing that booms (def: to make a deep, prolonged, resonant sound).
  10. Chicago Sting. Sounds like it’s made with aspartane.
