Funny Kickball Team Names

After a winter of spending Thursday nights exercising our brains at Trivia Night, my friends and I returned to the great outdoors last night for the opening game of kickball. I’ve been swimming a lot in the past few months, and running, lifting weights, and doing yoga. I’m starting to see that I look a little trimmer in the lumpy places, and I was convinced that that would all add up to sudden coordination on the kickball field. However, it turns out that I still can’t catch for the life of me. Thankfully, my gawkiness didn’t cause our team to give up any runs like last year, and I did get to first base once, but I didn’t develop magical mad skillz over the winter. Alas, I will just have to enjoy myself at the bar afterwards, and a hardship that will not be.

Oh, and because I get a lot of people coming to this blog who are looking for funny kickball team names, I’ll let you know that we’re Team Underpants. Why? Because Flick, our team leader, wants to be known as Capitan Underpants. Also, it’s probably going to be a good opportunity for our friend Pantsless to yet again go pantsless. I can’t wait until the fall when we’ll be on team 21st Amendments again.

UPDATE
This is the most popular post, not because it’s well written, or funny, or interesting. But Googlers come here every day thinking they’re going to find a list of funny kickball team names. And I’m not one to deny my readers, even if they just pop in for a minute and then leave (please, bookmark me and read more when you have time.) So, I’m compiling a list of names I think are funny from WAKA leagues across the country. You can steal these names if you want to, but I warn you, they’re taken.

I also need to mention teams use the “Off in” prefix, so that when you say “My team beat OFF IN ____” you sound like an asshole. I hate this genre, because it was only funny the first time. So, dishonorable mention goes to:
OFF IN THE SHOWER – Shore, VA
OFF CONSTANTLY – Dominion, VA
OFF IN PUBLIC – Star, TX
OFF IN CORNER – West Palm, FL
OFF IN THE PARK – Capital, DC

If you want to argue these calls, or add your own team name, send me an email at dailytannenbaum – gmail – com.

    There was an article about kickball in the online Minneapolis paper yesterday. The team profiled was named the Dancing Nancies (or something close to that). I am still scarred from elementary school kickball and thus have not joined a team. Not that anyone has asked me.

    Wow, none of my frisbee teams ever had fun names. Hell, we didn’t have a name at all. This has made me determined to come up with one.

    I can totally get behind the excitement and amusement of a good team name. I have a few friends who do a fantasy football league every year, and the only part that’s interesting to me is the team names. I think my favorite of recent memory was when one of my friends named his team “The Helper Monkeys.” I don’t know why that’s funny, but… wait. Yes. I do. Monkeys are always funny. My other favorite was “The Pope of Chili Town.” You are a Simpsons fan, right? So I’m assuming you got that reference. It still cracks me up. 🙂

    Anyway, have a great season. I have no kickball skillz either, so I would sit on the sidelines and wait for the part where we go to the bar. I commend you simply for participating in the game part at all!

    i am terrible at catching too. i blame my long legs: everytime i go to bend over to pick the ball up, i kick it further in front of me. this usually goes on for hours.

    but i can run fast, sans alcohol (which is never the case)

    You know, good for you, because I tried to get my “friends” to start a kickball league with me last summer, and I was laughed under the table.

    Apparently, your friends don’t suck.

  6. OK guys, post season is over, it’s time to remember your wife or girlfriend. Maybe you better make up for ignoring her for most of January. How about a Valentines gift from 1-800-Flowers.com (http://www.1800flowers.com)
