I was a Bad Axe Hatchet in High School.

I was always a little disappointed that Peck H-S went with the Pirates as they're nickname. Gladwin H-S is the Flying Gosshawks.

I was a Whitman College "Fighting Missionary."

Not that great of a mascot but we did have the greatest cheer:

"Missionaries, Missionaries, we're on top!"

Near here there are 2 controversial high schools.

Orofino, Idaho is "The Maniacs" as the state mental institution is located in that town.

Richland, Washington, is "The Bombers" as they made the material for our nuclear arsenal including Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Their logo is a mushroom cloud. BTW, Bonderman is from Pasco which is close by and down wind from there.

I was happy to see that one of the MWL teams made it to the list. Although, as Microline once predicted, it is not the worst team name--"Swing of the Quad Cities" did make one of the honorable mentions--and rightfully so. The only thing that is worse than their name, is the combination of colors they are forced to wear--an awful burnt orange combined with a powder blue

The Geoduck Fight Song

(words and music by Malcolm Stilson, 1971)

Go, Geoducks go,

Through the mud and the sand,

let's go.

Siphon high, squirt it out,

swivel all about,

let it all hang out.

Go, Geoducks go,

Stretch your necks when the tide

is low

Siphon high, squirt it out,

swivel all about,

let it all hang out.

There used to be a team in the Central Hockey League called Macon Whoopee.

After the Whoopee folded, the next hockey team was the Macon Trax.

There was also a GBA basketball team named the Macon Bacon.

This year the Colorado Rockies minor league affiliate in Casper Wyoming changed their name from the Casper Rockies to the Casper Ghosts.
