Sheldon names his bowling team 'The Wesley Crushers.' What did you name your sports league team?

But perhaps that’s because I have an affinity for pop culture-centric sports league team names. (Who doesn’t?) My bowling team, for one, is named “We Drink Your Milkshakes,” since we felt we could intimidate our competition by referencing a scene from There Will Be Blood involving milkshakes, bowling pins, and blunt force trauma. (Fun!) And I guess it’s working, because we’re headed to the playoffs tonight! (That is, after besting a SyFy-inspired team, “Imagine Gutter.”)

Have you been inspired à la Sheldon? What pop culture project/person/event inspired your sports league team name, PopWatchers?
