Thanksgiving Week continues! I’m sure we all remember how the Pilgrims of the 1600s fled England to escape persecution for their horribly malformed faces (see left).
William Bradford sought out Professor Charles Xavier and together the two men parted the waters of the Atlantic Ocean so that Puritan Mutants could make their Exodus and walk all the way to the New World.

BRISTOL COLLEGE BAYHAWKS

Like all levels of college sports, the JUCO ranks have waaaay too many teams called Tigers, Eagles, Bulldogs and Wildcats, but here are the 20 Coolest Names.
20. BAKERSFIELD RENEGADES
Location: Bakersfield, CA
Comment: If you “walk the streets of Bakersfield” you’re bound to hear about the Renegades, who have a nickname cool enough to be a rock group or a band of mercenaries in the notoriously bad post-apocalypse movie 2020 Texas Gladiators. Hard to believe in just a few years the country will be full of those marauding gangs, isn’t it?
19. HIGHLAND SCOTTIES
Location: Highland, KS
Comment: You just knew a dog lover like me would include this team! And there’s no truth to the rumor that their original mascot was Star Trek’s James Doohan standing on the sidelines and saying “I need more time, Cap’n!”
18. ASA AVENGERS
Location: New York, NY
Comment: Insert your own Emma Peal or “Why is the Avengers movie taking so long?” joke here. This school has one seriously cool nickname and logo, don’t they? T-shirt sales must be through the roof! And I’m sure their call to practice is either “We’re needed” or “Avengers Assemble!”
17. GARDEN CITY BRONCBUSTERS
Location: Garden City, KS
Comments: No, that’s not a typo, they go by Broncbusters, not BroncObusters. Under any name and in any sport they kick major butts. And you just haven’t busted until you’ve Broncbusted, y’know? Continue reading
CHESAPEAKE COLLEGE SKIPJACKS
Location: Wye Mills, MD
Comment: Don’t call them the Flapjacks. Don’t call them the Blackjacks. Don’t call them Continue reading
SAINT CLAIR COUNTY COLLEGE SKIPPERS

Division: NJCAA (National Junior College Athletic Association)
Comment: You can insert your own Gilligan’s Island comment if you like, but I find the nickname Skippers to be Continue reading
QUINSIGAMOND COLLEGE WYVERNS
Location: Worcester, MA
Major Sports: baseball, softball, basketball
Comment: Quinsigamond is a mouthful, no doubt about it, and when you combine that memorable school name with the memorable team name Wyverns you have got the kind of magic that Continue reading
