    Office Bowling Team Name

    Help! My team is deadlocked on choosing a team name! Can you guys help us out?

    The team is comprised of 2 guys and 2 gals, ages early 30s to mid 40's. I don't know if that will help with choosing between the two options.

Of course we know a lot, but it is context that's missing, not treasures." - Werner Herzog, in Archaeology, March/April 2011

    I voted for "Other (please provide specifics)" because that's a different name fer sure.

    Some guys in my office are known as “team hardwood” at the annual golf tournament... Several years ago, 3 of the 4 guys had pregnant wives, and the 4 wife always had a smile.

    i've used this for 7-a-side soccer before:

    Your Mum's Athletic

    (For those not too au fait with soccer, many teams over here have the suffix* 'Athletic' - such as Charlton Athletic, Wigan Athletic & Oldham Athletic)

    An original off the top of my head:

    Martha Stewart's Felching Disasters







    *i think i've used 'suffix' in the wrong context. Apologies but i can't think of the right word, its a Friday afternoon.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    Fat Cat

    We were not that creative, we put the name of our sponser on the shirts.

    The sponser was probably embarassed we were not that good but we did enjoy ourselves.

    With my night meetings I was a sub and quite often couldnt even do that, but did enjoy the "banquet"

    I'm guessing there will be at least one other team called The Pin Heads.

    I vote for: "7-10 F U"

    Man, I wish we had an office bowling team. That would be so fun.

    I would have to go with "The Little Lebowski Urban Achievers". But that is only because I love the movie Bige Lebowski so much.
