I can't remember which league it is (East coast I think) but the name Macon Whoopee just is an awful name for a hockey team.

In Japan, I think Dr Randy Gregg played for a team called the Kikudu Bunnies. Surely, they weren't the Charleston Chiefs of Japan.

I'm glad you brought up Macon. A thread like this is lacking if we don't mention the Whoopee. Macon isn't doing much better these days, with a team called the Trax, in a league you probably never heard of, the SPHL.
