Funniest team names: Food and Things Regional

Published: Wednesday, May 14 2014 6:51 p.m. MDT

Colleges and professional teams are named after a wide array of animals, professions and anything in between.

While some teams have generic names (i.e. Wildcats, Warriors, Knights), others go with more creative names to separate themselves from the pack.

We sat down as a team to find the whackiest sports names in the country. We had so much fun with it that we decided to make a 64-team tournament and allow you, the readers, select who has the silliest team name in college/professional sports in America (and Canada).

Voting will commence on the Deseret News Sports Facebook page.

Today we open the voting for the Food and Things Regional.

The Scottsdale Artichokes got their team name during the Vietnam War, with students wanting the least aggressive name possible. How "Fighting" got into the mix is anyone's guess.
