Team Name Mishaps

I know from personal experience that game announcers sometimes get a few names mixed up. First off I don't blame them, there are so many teams and a lot of names are very similar. My team gets a kick out of being called Stryke Force on several occasions.
I am creating this thread for any other teams who go through something like this as well.

We once ordered 1500 wrist bands to give away. When we got the order the team name on the wrist band was X-Caps!

Re: Team Name Mishaps

2451 PWNAGE rarely has their name pronounced correctly.
Usually something along the lines of "Pawnage"

Re: Team Name Mishaps

It is a bit easier to chant "eleven oh eight" than "eleven zero eight" or worse "one one zero eight". I've definitely heard from people in the stands when "they're saying it wrong." Who knew announcers needed to know how to phonetically say team numbers? And other teams could prefer another way of saying it.

They sent us 1500 more with the right name on it. Not sure what happened to the bad wrist bands.

YES! To build off of that, it is 100% easier to chunk the number into 2 parts ex: (54)-(60); if you can. I have had some announcers call us team five hundred fourty six, zero

I was going to say give them to the right team maybe but I just looked it up and I couldn't find a team X-Caps.

Re: Team Name Mishaps

Our team name is Error 404. We're a rookie team, and there is another rookie team in Michigan with the name Error 404 as well lol.

Also people tend to say "Arrow 404" or "Team 404". We're slowly transitioning the team over to Waverly Robotics because of all that

Re: Team Name Mishaps

This is a team number mishap, in 2014 at Windsor I remember 1114 winning an award but the MC called them 1141 Simbotics.

Re: Team Name Mishaps

In a local newspaper article during the 2016 season the headline read “Beat Bots Look to Dunk”. They fixed it in the online version.

Wha...I could see "Five thousand four hundred and sixty", but to say that makes me think I'm writing a check. I don't think we've been "eleven hundred and eight" or "one thousand one hundred and eight", yet.

Re: Team Name Mishaps

I’ve been wondering how and why 1515’s official team name on TBA/FIRST has recently changed to “NASA MORTORQ 1515”...

I went to Milken high school, but in LA there is also a much better known Millikan high school. We get called the Millikanknigbts constantly.
