I put zero thought into mine. The first thing that came to mind was Pork Chop Express, so I used it. Then I thought, how can you have a baseball team without Abbott and Costello, so I added them. Then I just typed the first 10 "cool" characters that came to mind and left it that way ever since.

[SCORE CORRECTION NEEDED]

The Chakram/Round-up score was input backwards.

The score should be:
Chakram - 9
Round-up - 6

Thanks

Good, it felt weird having a win on my list. Any more than 3 wins and the pressure become too much for my team.

Mine's pretty obvious:

A.C. Deecee
Aero Smith*
Hootie Blowfish*
Pinkie Floyd
Vinnie Halen
Leonard Skinard
Alec N. Chains
Bo Dean
Link Enpark
Jim Blossoms
Earl Jammer
Mo Zart

* = last seen looking for work in a Mexican league

and rookies:

Lynn Biskit
Fred Zeppelin

Just went through my CD collection and picked rock bands whose names I could bastardize into a person's name. The first 11 were pretty easy, but I couldn't find a 12th, so I went through my classical collection.

I have no idea what motivated me to go with this theme. It just happened.

Oh, that reminds me... I gotta write that smallguy guy. That TP ticket I got a few weeks ago for BOTR says it's already been "used".

Sadly, I don't think I will need your help. The only team I might accidentally be is the caprenters, but I doubt that will even happen, since I did lose to Mojo

Thanks! I should be able to climb higher since I don't have to worry about power training for a while. Now, if I can just win more than 50% of my games I'd be happy

You know that you're gonna have a great season when your first and only win comes from a forfeit.

Edit:

But maybe not even. He just initiated against me and so can just submit that score....sigh.....

On the plus side, solipsta. You've found a way to be less like the 2001 Seattle Mariners!

I am trying to get some wins generated. Something has to happen.

So if anybody wants to challenge a slumping 9*in monster, Team #85077.

I will remain in Monter until Monday, so no need to check the stadium before initiating.

Oh cool! I can change that soon. And that was really the only thing I had going.....sigh....I guess I'll just have to get better and win a division playoff some day.

On a side note.....has anyone noticed that the only players that get a walk seem to be the pitcher? I'm playing Passive Agressive and my pitcher has walked his twice so far. It's insane.

:grrr: I hate dancinns team.

Play his team and win yesterday (he probably had bench players in)
yesterday and today for official games he plays me and I lose.

I liked seeing my name at the top of the divison...

The only time I've ever seen walks is when playing a very low * team. I get a lot of walks, but oddly I also give up a lot of walks.

You GET a lot of walks??? I haven't seen my team get a walk since I've been about 7*s.....doesn't mean I haven't gotten one though...just that I haven't seen my team get one. But when I give me....ALWAYS the pitcher.
