Thanks for all the tips...I'll pass them along to my neighbor. Funny that someone said Watermelons....he told me one of the kids came up with Kamikaze Watermelons.

One of my favorite kids team name / experience was a Squirt Ice Team playing in a spring league a few years back. I was at the rink waiting for some pickup and the kids were playing beforehand. I noticed that all the names on the jerseys looked Russian so I asked one of the parents what that was about. He told me to look closer at the names.

I then paid attention and saw Fetisov, Kasatanov, Kharlamov, etc....

Apparently, the parent told me that the kids were given red jerseys for the season and couldn't come up with a team name. About 1/2 way through the season one of the kids recommended the Red Army. They then went out and each picked a name from the 1980 Soviet Olympic team and had that name put on the jerseys. The kid who had Mikhailov actually had the K on the front of his jersey. Was pretty funny to see.
