    Best/Worst nicknames in sports or otherwise

    In light of the LA Clippers' bench naming themselves A Tribe Called Bench, I was wondering a) what everyone thought of the nickname, and b) what other unusual/terrible ones you've heard before, in the sports world or outside the sports world.

    ďUrgency,Ē Rhoads said. ďThatís exactly what I told our staff. Itís exactly what I told our players. Urgency in getting your job done. Thatís in a 100 percent rate of speed at executing your responsibility ó whether itís a fit, whether itís a tackle, whether itís a route, whether itís a cut-off block. Everybody needs a little bit more urgency in coaching and playing.Ē
