I always liked Team 326, if for nothing else than seeing how good the MC/GA’s were:
In FLL, there was a team named
[insert team name here]
The story is that they were filling out an online form, and one of the kids asked, “So, is that our team name?” It stuck. Team imagery was black and white a la the old “generic” brands in the grocery store.
Puns seem to be the ones that stick around in people’s minds or the creative mixes. I personally love 5940 B.R.E.A.D. and our own team 1280’s Ragin C’-Biscuits (we use cpp). Janksters is a great and Cheesypoofs holds a special place in my heart (not because they helped us saw a 5 inch bolt in half the longways).
My favorites are 2468 “Team Appreciate”, and the Thunder Chickens.
Our team name was just “Torque” the first year, but after the kids saw all the other cool names and they wanted to change it. They voted on “TorqueNados” because the movie “sharknado” had just come out.
I figure I may as well add to this thread as intended instead of my rebranding tirade. I love simple, elegant names. Usually without “the”, and almost assuredly without “robo”, “bots”, or “robotics”. A lot have already been listed, but:
Sadly Theodore Roosevelt’s Disco Haircut did not return (yet ) from the pandemic upheaval. In their place, I’d say 7454 - Huskies On Hogs is a contender for the craziest team name in Indiana. Beating out Team 5402 which was named, ‘Iron Kings and Berrybotics’ but just recently changed to ‘Wreckless Robotics’, which is also a great ‘pun’ name.
Gotta shout out to SHAM-ROCK-BOTICS for using an emoji in their team name, though. And I’ve always thought 1720 - PhyXTGears and SuPURDUEper Robotics were interesting choices.
