So, my fellow nerds … it’s time for another Tweetus … No, its nothing you should get checked out by your physician … it’s where you tweet us about a specific topic.
Sports Team Names
Many professional sport teams have names. The NBA team from Detroit is the Pistons, because of the influence of the city of Detroit on the automotive industry. The NBA team from Chicago is the Bulls, because of the city’s historic stockyards where a lot of meat was shipped to different locations across America. The NHL’s Maple Leafs and Canadiens are historic teams representing the country.
Curling rinks, on the other hand, are typically named after the skip (we’re not talking about the Olympics here).
But, what if we were to give some specific teams some names?
For example, would the Jennifer Jones rink be named the Winnipeg Warriors – conquering the competition? Would the John Schuster rink be the Duluth Underdogs – successful despite not being the favorite? Would Team Ulsrud be the Oslo Pants?
Tweet us @nerdcurl with your favorite rink and what their name should be … we’ll take the best ones and put them on the podcast!
