What is the dumbest team name in all of sports?

Was a topic on 95.7 yesterday and wanted to hear your guys' opinions. Could be professional, a college mascot, a minor league team....whatever. What in your opinion is the dumbest team name in sports? Your answer is up to interpretation of the question. It could be because the mascot isnt manly, it could be because the team name doesnt make sense with the geographical location....whatever you choose.

Nominations?
Seahawks

Dodgers

Warriors

Not to defend a rival team, but a Seahawk is another name for Osprey, which is a large bird of prey that lives near the water. Nothing to do with a seagull.

Also, Utah Jazz might not make sense, but it sounds good phonetically. Although im generally not a fan of any team name that doesnt end in "S".

The worst team name in major sports is the Wild, and its not that close. There are some terrible NHL team names.
How about the Montgomery Biscuits? Or The Atlanta Crackers?
