Team Names

No, this isn't Kaos Theory. It's coming tomorrow. I get sidetracked. (I've been busy.) (I was out of town.) (Pick a reason that works for you.)
Received an update from the kids at World Cup Asia reminding everyone to register asap to get listed on the official T-shirt--and, oh yeah, an opportunity to compete. If you're planning on being in the neighborhood--take a left at Fiji and get in the game.
Back in the day official event T-shirts with a list of competing teams was all the rage. And it used to be fun taking a look at the different team names just to see what goofy choices some ballers made. (Okay, in the interests of full disclosure it was probably more fun after making a serious dent in the rum--but still.)
Never did that? Fine, let me show you that it can be entertaining. (Hey, I'm easily amused. Lighten up.) Check out some of the teams playing World Cup Asia: Dirty Annihilation (GER), Raskal (MAL), Ne Makrame (RUS), Red Sevens (Singapore), Hittballerz (MAL), Beez Waxers (MAL), Simpsons (MAL) & Skin (Singapore). Pretty good, right? Some are cool, some are bizarre--and some are completely indecipherable, at least from the perspective of a different culture. Who would ever have figured a team from Malaysia would name themselves over an American cartoon produced in Korea?
How 'bout--Sumatran Centurians? Or Mighty Owl? iscreamwar is a keeper. And I'm liking Mulischa too.
See? Not so bad after all. (Now's the time for you OG types to step up and add some names from yesteryear to the list and learn these lazy slacking kids a thing or two.)

Tomorrow--for real this time--Kaos Theory.
