Strange Sports Question

Recommended Posts

There was recently an 'introduction' post from Mississippi.

I've always liked that state's name. It has a sort of 'ring' and 'flow' to it.

And remember how proud you were when you first memorized how to spell it?

That had a flow to it too. You'd never spell it one slow letter at a time.

While I was in this state of mind, it popped into my head that

"The Mississippi Marbles" would be a good 'team' name.

Have any sports teams ever used 'marbles' in their name?

I don't know! But you know you'd 'root' for them! witch! :P

Since I'm still in my psychedelic marble mood, I just thought of something fun.

I'm picturing a situation back in the marble heyday, where all the major manufacturers

might have had softball teams which played each other. What would the team names be?

I'm pretty sure 'The Rainbos' would be in that group.

Although, now that I think about it, these days team names don't always follow the

old-school rule of being the plural of something simple and logical.

So the Peltier 'Peerless' might be a good name too! ( :

My phantasy just strikes me. I literally 'hear' an imaginary radio broadcast live from the stadium:

"... welcome to this years Mississippi Marble Games Super Recess Cup. This is Jack Tellmann and we are expecting the greatest final ever. The California Cateyes versus the Peltier Peerless. The crowd is already shouting while the teams just line up ..."

'California Cateyes' sounds nice also ...

It does. It really does.
