Naming a professional sport’s team is serious business. Unless you’re talking about minor league baseball, that is. The monikers that these teams get tagged with often reflect a characteristic, animal or product of the region they’re in, but they also administer a healthy dose of humor. The Manistee News Advocate lists their Top 10 favorites, and we’re adding one more:

  • Florence Y’alls (Florence, Kentucky) -- no mascot, just the inclusive “y’all”
  • Gastonia Honey Hunters (Gastonia, North Carolina) -- an aggressive badger
  • Binghamton Rumble Ponies (Binghamton, New York) -- a fire-breathing carousel pony
  • Norwich Sea Unicorns (Norwich, Connecticut) -- a narwhal
  • Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp (Jacksonville, Florida) -- yummy jumbo shrimp
  • Hartford Yard Goats (Hartford, Connecticut) -- a yard goat is a tractor that moves trains around the trainyard, except this guy is just a goat
  • Amarillo Sod Poodles (Amarillo, Texas) -- a prairie dog
  • Rocket City Trash Pandas (Madison, Alabama) -- a racoon
  • Burlington Sock Puppet (Burlington, North Carolina -- yep, an actual sock puppet
  • Carolina Disco Turkeys (Winston-Salem, North Carolina) -- a turkey in a white disco suit

RUNNER UP: Montgomery Biscuits (Montgomery, Alabama) -- a biscuit whose tongue is a pat of hot butter and fans who harass the batter with chants of “Hey, butter, butter, butter
