Ask and ye shall receive, SGSW.

I'm not a huge fan of the name, but it could have been worse. At least this way the team can incorporate some AC/DC and Garth Brooks into the pregame.

Some options discussed in the Daily Oklahoman:

Thunderbirds
Barons
Slickers
Drillers
Twisters

I would have preferred Barons.

I don't know how they could've passed up Twisters. That's the first thing anyone thinks of when they hear Oklahoma.

Thunderbirds isn't bad. The logo almost draws itself, plus the mascot will be pretty obvious.

Too many people get killed every year. I would have preferred a respectful Native American name, but there was never one proposed. That, or the Bison. That would have been a kick ass mascot.

Thanks Queso.

Don't like the Heat/Magic/Lighting type names. Absolutely can't stand Thunderbirds. That's the nickname of SGSW Law U - I may go to school out there right now, but I still have a huge hatred of their athletics program. Furthermore, the thunderbird is a much more prominent symbol in Northwest Coast native mythology than on the plains, so that's kind of silly.

I am a strong supporter of AC/DC, though.

I'd have liked Barons, because then I just could've called them Robber Barons forevermore.

Bison would have been the best, I agree. Noble beasts of the plains and whatnot.

if im cooking frozen pizza in the oven, how long should i preheat it. box says preheat to 375F but for how long?

Apr 25
the opportunity cost of knowing how to preheat an oven is pretty puny compared to anything else

That bison looks like he's smiling in the logo. Here's a Bison logo, albeit directly lifted from another team...

How did the rodeo not get mention? Stampede would've been a nice fit.

Besides, Thunder sounds like their USBL counterparts....

the Thunder? really?? is there a gayer team name in professional sports? the only one that comes to my mind is the mighty ducks, possibly. absolutely terrible.

The Mighty Ducks dropped the Mighty from their name in 2006. They won the Stanley Cup the next year.

I still say the Oilers would have been awesome. The Barons isn't too bad. The Bombers had promise. :sniff:

Maybe not as gay but IMO nothing's worse than the Utah Jazz.
