Death or Corky needs a new name

Pat King once said that whenever a team choses a new name, all the other teams
are going to try to come up with a play on words to twist your new name around
to make you seem like a bunch of idiots. Therefore, he always wanted to just be
done with it and call his new team "the Idiots". I tend to agree with him, and
I have been waiting for the appropriate time to make this suggestion. I can't
imagine a better time. So there you go, Steve. You should call yourselves "the
Idiots". We are.

P.S.  or you could face facts and call yourselves the Tea party.

P.P.S. I can't believe you guys cut Masher and Joel.

In a year where the New York Rangers purged the ghosts and finally
silenced the hecklers chanting '1940' and where the Boston Red Sox are
constantly haunted by refrains of '1918', will Boston Ultimate be barraged
by serenades of '1982'?  In an effort to turn a weakness into a strength
perhaps the new name for the DOG could be '1982' turning the most vicious
hecklers into the most ardent fans.  Just as the NFL this year will play
several games with uniforms from 25 or more years ago '1982' could
recreate the look and feel of Ultimate in those halcyon days where Boston
ruled the game.  Just stop cutting your hair now and practice those wrist
flips with a Wham-o and you're halfway there.  Mooney (MoonEE's original
name) will show you the way.  Get rid of the clam and the force middle and
just play hard man-to-man.  Nostalgia is in this year.  Take advantage of
it!

Sorry, but the constant posts and counter-posts of Jordan, MoonEE, Dix, Troy,
etc (heah, where's "Testosterone" JP in all this? Has his computer seat been
permanently occupied by his evil twin, Skip...er, Ed Hwang?), have FORCED me
to end this thread (hopefully!).

Now it started with trying to replace the name Tea Party. Now let's see, that
was a glorious moment in U.S. history when a small band of patriots faced an
overwhelming force and WON! Now, I ask you, is that an appropriate name for a
band that has made an art (under various and sundry names over the past decade)
of fetching defeat from the jaws of victory. I don't think so! And I therefore
agree that a change of names is indeed required.

Now maybe they should stay with a more fitting U.S.-history based name. How
'bout Little Big Horn, for Custer's last stand? How 'bout Bull Run, wherein
all of Washington, D.C. went to picnic and watch the Rebs rout the Union army?
(Also, considering all the bombast of the boys of Beantown -- nice
alliteration, eh? -- perhaps the BULL part is also a reasonable thought!).
Maybe we should consider Alamo? (But, then again, that lead to a victory down
the road which gave us, uhh,  Texas. Err, all things considered, maybe we
SHOULD consider Alamo, after all!)

But, then again, the Boston crew is gunning for a World-class name (note how
they now have taken to challenging a British also-ran team -- STAN -- for
"bragging" rights). So, perhaps to widen the scope, might I suggest Waterloo?
Or maybe Dunkirk? What about the Maginot line (heah, they could even rename one
of their patented slack-off defenses to that!)? I'm sure that afficionados of
history would be glad to add further suggestions!

It's already been done, by -you guessed it- Mighty Tired. It was a fearsome 6-1
zone (we did a lot of experimenting with zones) that, believe it or not,
produced several turnovers. i reccommend it only in certain wind conditions,
however. You also need the right back man to play the '1'. In our case it was
Jamison 'Tree' Hall.

Well, under certain circumstances my team would play a 0-0-7 zone. If the
other team actually dropped the disc before they reached our endzone all
of our players were required to lay down and laugh before we picked up the
disc.

Hey,

I know I should be the one to know this, but is New Jersey planning to
hold its own open sectionals this year, as in previous years, or are the
Jersey teams planning to join the PA/DE sectionals, as they did last
year.  As S.C., this concerns me greatly, and I could sure use to hear
as soon as possible.

Thanks,

Matt Weiss

Although I dont have personal experience with the Boston boys, from
the postings here I get the impression they should be called

The 4 B's ...Bastard Bragging Boston Bastards....

Bastards twice because they seem to deserve it...
Late night stray thoughts from up north...
