Not sure where to put this besides in it's own topic. My rugby team is holding a contest for a team mascot. We're accepting entries until this Friday at 11:59. I figured there were some creative minds around here, and also I've seen some pretty skilled MS painters. Artwork is not necessary for submission, but it's pretty fun. So yeah, enter some ideas, and you could win...something. There's not a prize listed, but being credited with the creation of a mascot is pretty cool, and so is a team t-shirt. :coookieesssss:

Mascot contest webpage.
Some info about Tallahassee, perhaps some inspiration here?
Also, stuff about Florida.
And some rugby lingo, if people feel like getting really creative.

So yeah, have fun. And, if anyone comes up with anything particularly hilarious, or just wants to, share it here.

How about "Mauling Magnets" for something Tallahassee related, or "Tallahassee Copperheads" for that deadly animal name.

I mean, like, old ICP joke aside, how do they maul?

If you're talking about NHL teams, you mean Blues. Jazz is (was?) a basketball team.

I'm not saying the name doesn't make sense with the sport. I'm saying the name just doesn't make sense. How do magnets maul?

I hope you're all submitting these, not just posting them here.

My lamest thought thus far has been: Florida's state bird: Mockingbird + rugby = MAULINGBIRDS. (Or, if you like, RUCKINGBIRDS)

I meant the New Orleans Brass, an old minor league hockey team. My mistake.

My point is it doesn't have to make sense. Mauling is a rugby term as well as a way to sound threatening and magnets have a prominent spot in Tallahassee, hence Mauling Magnets. No magnets can not actually maul people but look at damn near any mascot and they don't make sense. How does a bear play football? It doesn't its just a big dangerous animal that's native to the area. Rather than "Tallahassee Magnets" why not add a little alliterative flair and have "Tallahassee Mauling Magnets?"

Swallow a couple of neodymium magnets and start hovering one on the outside of your stomach and it'll do a nice job on your insides

Also, really hope the soundtrack CD for the movie is the stuff from the actual movie, because this might be the first soundtrack I've actually bought from a movie since like...fucking Pokemon The First Movie. Yeah, I bought it, I was like 12 when it came out, big whoop, wanna fight about it?
