Believe it or not there was a single A baseball team in Battle Creek, MI where they had the locals "name the team".  The people hands down picked the nickname the Battle Creek Golden Kazoos.  I garbage you not.

After enough embarassment they changed it to the Michigan Battle Cats, then the Battle Creek Yankees and then the Southwest Michigan Devil Rays. 

Some great players came through there.  Johan Santana, Roy Oswalt, Shea Hillenbrand and numerous other big leaguers.  Fun to watch.

I could probably go on and on and on. I am not going to mention the endless numbers of lame college names, or any other useless sports. 


lakers were from minnesota - land of 10000 lakes (google george mikan)

clippers were from san diego - a clipper is a type of boat if im not mistaken. makes sense

Shockers is a shortening of Wheat Shockers.  Before the combine, wheat would be gathered by hand and left standing in groups called shocks of wheat.  They would then be collected by truck.  The people who did the manual work were wheat shockers.  Wichita State being in wheat country the name is appropriate.
