Help me think of a softball team name


In June, we are playing MSN’s HR team in softball and some of us were trying to think of funny team names. MSN can be something like “the search engines”, but since our HR and Staffing team covers so many different corporate functions (ops, HR. finance, marketing, legal), we need to come up with something that is more general. Some of the names we came up with:

The Talent Warriors

The Strikes

Human Capitals

Personnel (only funny because it’s such a 70s term)

HR (Home Run) Hitters

The A Playas

I Want a Pony (I don’t know why that seems so funny to me, but it’s probably just me)

I have some other names here but none of them are funny enough. Can someone help us out? Gotta keep in clean and funny. Let’s hear some recommendations…

 

PS: I’ll let you all know what we go with and I’ll take pictures at the game too

    The Talent Merchants

    Partners in Crime

    Divas,Achievas and Believas

  3. Andy says:

    "Heather’s Hotties"

    Heh now there is a PC name for you. I can’t wait to see the pictures.

  4. Scott says:

    !Outsourced

    The Generics

    Want your paycheck?

    The performance review reviewers

    They who should not be named

    I’m here all week, try the fish. ba-da dum

  5. The Spandex Eleven ??

    Market Mayhem

    Hamil’s Brigade 🙂

  6. Ando says:

    How about "The People People"

  7. "The Strikes" is not a good name for an HR group’s softball team. I would also stay away from "The Layoffs"….

  8. How about The Catberts?!! 🙂

    I cannot think of any more. Enjoy the game.

  9. Philip Rieck says:

    You have to keep it clean, so my favorite "The Master Batters" is out.

    Only funny to HR type people would be "Fired Up"

    Again only funny to the "personnel" department would be "resume play" (but would be funner written than pronounced either way)

  10. Andy says:

    How about:

    "Homerun Resources"

  11. Pacrand says:

    Canadians with an agenda!

    (No, I don’t get it either….)

  12. Heather says:

    You guys are all so funny! I needed that this morning (forgot to set my coffee maker and had to settle for a cup off odd, coffeee flavored water stuff with a milk-like polymer added).

    Andy-I’m guessing that a team of about 15 people, many of whom are men, don’t want to be referred to tht way ; )

    I think there might be some winners in there!

  13. Heather says:

    Oh-I thought of some more…

    The Screaming Clients

    The Employee Referrals

  14. Nathan says:

    I Moved Your Cheese

  15. Chris Haaker says:

    Lousy With Flowers or

    Personnel Pimps

  16. JohnB says:

    I don’t know why, but I keep chuckling at Nathan’s entry.

    Some others:

    HR@Bat

    Rabid Recruiters

    Your bonuses are based on our number of wins

  17. Heather says:

    JohnB-me too…nathan is funny. oopsie, I’m late for my rabies shot ; )

  18. mike w says:

    The Resourceful Humans.
    <br>Heather’s Heavy Hitters.
    <br>The MicroBats
    <br>

  19. Noah says:

    The Great "Gates".

  20. mike w says:

    aww. my comments didn’t show up from yesterday. I think I had *The Resourceful Humans* and another one or two. But I don’t remember. 🙁 Oh yeah, *The MicroBats*

  21. The Fuming Helens ?

  22. Jo Masterson says:

    How about: “Undiscovered Talent”

    Have a great game,

    Jo

  23. Ando says:

    How about "The People People"

  24. HeatherLeigh says:

    Sorry MikeW—something weird going on with my moderation, but still it was almost surely user error (meaning me as the moderator).

    Ando-that’s very peoplesoft-ish…they call their employees people people. GOod name for them if we were playing them…perhaps we could challenge them to a game if we beat MSN ; )

  25. Canseco's Pop-a-Roids says:

    Its big in baseball!!

  26. patblue says:

    For some reason I can only think of highly inappropriate names for this softball team. I am of little help here.

  27. Roger Irwin says:

    sexual harrassment

  28. The Cutbacks says:

    The Cutbacks, nothing to with softball and maybe nothing to do with legal department.

  29. Renny says:

    Evil Petting Zoo (from Austin Powers)

    Ropes Course Ravens

    Kick OS

    A cool site to manage team is at sportsvite.com.

  30. goalie says:

    Our team has been trying to think of a name for a while know but apparently were not very creative. Can any one help us? We need a one word name like… Velocity is one we came up with. Were a girls 16 year old team and we have our first tournament coming up in a couple of weeks so if any one could help that would be great!
