10 Funny Intramural Team Names

No Game This Week

If you don't think you can beat the other teams on the court, maybe it's better to try and outsmart them. This name just might be enough to trick the other team into thinking no game has been scheduled, so they don't show up and you score a win by default. Anecdotal evidence from ESPN (and a bit of common sense) shows that it's unlikely to work, but depending on just how bad your team is or how badly you want to win, it might be worth a try. An intramural soccer team at Boston College used this name in 2011, and countless teams across the country have attempted some variation of this ruse throughout the history of intramural competition.
