View Full Version : Team name help

I can't believe I am going to do this but I am going to enter my first comp (in the backyard division).

I am NOT the creative type and would like some help with a team name. I have been a teacher and still work for a school system in an administrative position. The Gator in my posting name came from going to University of Florida and being a lifelong Gator fan. I like NASCAR and am certainly Southern. I know that is not much to go on... but it's all I can think of. Here are my not so creative first stabs:

Smokin Gator's Q4U
Smoke in the Swamp BBQ (the Swamp is what they call Florida Field)
Lit the Pit Drank a Bit
Gator's Pig Stop BBQ

How about a simple "Gator Barbecue"?

I really like - Bovine & Swine BBQ but I checked and it is already in use. I guess it would not be cool to add a name in front like Gator's Bovine & Swine... bummer!!

Grubbin' Gator
Barrel O' Que!
Gator Ribs

I vote Grubbin' Gator

I will voice my opinion on team names again. When a team uses Que or BBQ in the name it is redundant, we know its Que get a little more creative.

I'm still feeling the losses as well. That's ok, I love eating Gator meat....

So if you are not familiar with BBQ and the different teams associated with it you are gonna just know that Lotta Bull, or Pit Stop or...cooks BBQ?

Or for that matter The Anchormen, but if they are entered in oh.... lets say for sh%#S and giggles.... The Second Annual Pigs and Steers BBQ Challenge, in Capital City, Any State. KCBS Sanctioned $$$ Prize money for Best BBQ
And then lets say the winning team is again The Anchormen................................... HMMMM did they cook eggrolls and tacos?:roll:

Since Rich took top prize with with Flatulent Flatlander's Barbecue

then my vote is to just stick with your handle... Smokin' Gator BBQ.... Simply stated...

Otherwise, I'm still partial to Manager's Special ... Team logo is a big red sticker placed on the outside of some funky looking brown, moldy looking meat

I've got to be thinking of a name myself!

I kind of like the Barbecue and Bifocals name.

And I don't agree that using 'q' forms at the end is redundant... You may do things other than at a barbecue competition eventually. And sometimes, it just comes off the tongue well.

I really appreciate all the help with the names. There are some great ones in here. I still have not made up my mind but have narrowed it down to Tail-Gators, Ben-Gators, or just sticking with Smokin Gator. I gotta pick on in a few days as I am doing that first comp next weekend.

Thanks again folks... you are all awesome!!!

I just peeked at the 2006 TOTY results for the FBA. Did not see any "Smokin Gator" teams.
I like that one.

Are you doing Mcclenney?
If so, see ya there.
