WICHITA WHAM. It's the obvious choice. Just think about it: a whole new meaning to the phrase "Knothole Gang."

Needs something a little more flaming then Wham. The Cowboys? Cause we just need to capitalize on that whole western theme shiat because it worked so well for "Cowtown," the "Wranglers," and not to mention "Wild West World"

/all flaming bags of poo
//the "Thunder" is where it's at
///and the Shockers
////from Wichita

The Wichita Whitecastles

(what?! if they're gonna name the stadium the "pepsi/miller/alpo/bubblicious-dome" what's wrong with naming the team after a sponsor?)

I doubt that they'll know anything about some damn monkey on trial in Tennessee that happened like, before dirt was around.

Oddly enough, Whitecastle got their start in Wichita. None currently exsist within 500 miles of Wichita anymore.

I was hoping to see the Wichita Bathroom Teabaggers when I clicked the link. Guess I'll just have to settle for Wham.

Correct me if I'm wrong but the site says that you can cast your vote as often as you like...

Ok. who's going to write the script for auto Wham voting?

"The Wichita Tornado Magnets?"

Or a more subtle "Wichita Whirlwinds?"

/Lived there for a while
//Could apply to many cities in Tornado Alley though
2007-09-06 05:36:43 AM  
... or the Mongooses!

That's a great team name. "The Fighting Mongooses".

I think 'Wham' is the perfect name. For anything.

"It's a girl!"
"Let's name her Wham!"

The Wichita Abortion

Or, perhaps, the Wichita Aborted Fetuses

They could play at Operation Rescue Park.

Gosling: I think 'Wham' is the perfect name. For anything.

"It's a girl!"

Mr. and Mrs. Dangler may want to think twice about that advice...

Wichita Blow

I'm thinking for the tornadoes, but I guess most of the minor league players will be snarking it up their noses as well.

It's already named Lawrence-Dumont Stadium, and happens to be one of the oldest parks in the nation, dipshiat.

As for sponsorship, in Wichita, we save that for the team names, or any sports building at Wichita State.

Of the 10 name options, 4 are obviously sponsored. 2 by Boeing, One by Cessna, and I can't remember who makes the Sky King...

Thanks, because I was about to give you hell for no voting. Instead, I get to give you my vote.

Pure win.
