TODAY’S COOL-NAMED SPORTS TEAM – UNIVERSITY OF ALASKA-FAIRBANKS

ALASKA-FAIRBANKS NANOOKS

Location: Fairbanks, AK

Division: NCAA Division 2

Conference Affiliation: Great Northwest Athletic Conference

Major sports: hockey, basketball, volleyball, skiing, rifle 

Site: http://alaskananooks.com/

Comment: The Nanooks combine two of my passions – college sports and silent movies as in the classic silent film Nanook Of The North from 1922. If not for the fact that Fairbanks, AK is named after a Vice President and not the great Douglas Fairbanks we would have a second silent movie reference here. Anyway, in honor of the wintry weather affecting much of the nation I went with this school from Alaska.
