Funny Team Names

Coming up with a team name is all about being yourself. Think of something and put your own comedic twist on it. Be random. The Gold Fish Bowlers for a bowling league is a perfect example and that just came right of the top of my head. I was looking around the room, saw the goldfish bowl and wala.

The next part of having a great team name again is creativity. Never use a team name that is out there. If you have seen it, others have as well and it will not be the ultra popular name you want it to be. For starters, never use the master batters because everyone has heard it. That name is also a bad choice because of its inappropriateness. The name that you choose reflects on yourself as well, so I would stay away from dirty names if I were you.

Below will be a list that will help you with ideas. I know this goes against creativity, but some people need the help. In this list I guaranty you that there will by the funny basketball team names that catch your eye and make you take a second glance at its greatness.

Like I said before, there is this list coming up of funny basketball names and they will make you the team that everyone talks about. This list isn't going to be just any list. This is going to be the hugest, most massive, most mammoth, titanic, vast, giant, very big list of funny basketball team names you will every see. (I cannot guaranty that.) It is a good size, but I would like to make it bigger so if you could comment or go to my website to add to the list that would be great.

P.S.S. Never make basketball about the money. Play for fun. That is the reason you started playing so keep it up. If you are playing for any other reason you should rethink why you are playing.

This Set Surely Has An Entourage Season 5 DVD

Season five blends so well with season four; one is just a continuation right into the other. And with season 5 out on DVD right now, you will surely want to pick it up and hang onto it.

If you are someone that has never seen this show here is the basic plot of the series. It is a hilarious series that revolves around an up and coming Hollywood heart throb, Vince Chase. The series follows the life of Vince, as his half brother Eric, manages his career to assist in his achievement of being in the Hollywood spotlight. However, it does not only follow the life of Vice, it also documents the lives of his half brother and his entire entourage.

Although I have been a fan of Entourage since the very first episode, this is by far my favorite season yet. First of all contains a certain amount of reality, which helps you stay focused on what is coming up next. Also, it is unlike many other shows at there today, because the story lines are paced perfectly and do not drag on. The show also has enough humor that you will keep laughing even after some of Vince's biggest failures. You do not laugh at him, however, you laugh because you can relate to what he is going through, and the struggles he is facing. Although serious at time, you will not find yourself in hysterics by the end of the show, it is a light hearted comedy, that gives you a look at the upbeat side of life. Of course another reason that I am in love with this series is for the gorgeous men that come on the screen week after week.

Season 5 was also a season full of guest stars and cameos. Some of my favorites include Bow Wow and Fran Drescher. Other appearances included Martin Landau, Kevin Pollack, Eric Roberts, Mark Wahlberg and T.I.

Entourage Season 5 on DVD is a must have 3 DVD set that will leave you laughing not only at the lives of these incredible characters, but at your own existence as well.

Retro Man, Halloween Costumes From The 70s Era

In the 21st century the 70s Halloween costumes is a favorite choice of outfits for those who like to dress up. For Halloween the retro look is cool; no wonder the hippie look for Halloween continues to be a popular option. When you think about big hairdo?s and go-go boots it is easy to see why 70?s Halloween costumes are a preferred style for those who like to dress up on this Holiday. Even though the 70s have long past, when Halloween comes around, you can still go retro and bring this decade back to life.

Hippies were a big, if not controversial, part of the 1970s. Bell-bottom pants and tie-dyed shirts were all the rage. Release your inner flower child with a totally groovy, hippie look. It can be fun to be one with nature, even if it is for only one night out of the year. Do not get too caught up in the lifestyle, though. If you plan to party with friends, I highly recommend you still bathe!

British music was popular during the 1970s as well. The genre became just as famous in the United States as it was across the pond. Consider Brit themed attire, complete with Sergeant Peppers-style jacket, either purchased or handmade. If you play guitar, why not practice a few Beatles riffs and bring your instrument along to really live the part.

If the hippy scene is not appealing, and you are not a fan of British tunes, consider going retro chic. Short dresses, bright colors, go-go boots, and a neckerchief will complete the look perfectly. Think of 70s Halloween costumes that resemble Daphne from Scooby Doo!

The reality is that there are many options to choose from when defining your 70s Halloween costumes. Strapped for ideas ? you can always mimic the style of famous, or infamous, people of the era. No doubt about it, if go-go boots and afros just don?t do it for you, there is the option of choosing 70s Halloween costumes that are more abstract rather than direct replicas.

The other thing to keep in mind is that you don?t have to use those obvious references, like the hippy, when coming up with your 70s Halloween costumes idea. Retro doesn?t mean that you can?t use a more obscure aspect of the decade when designing your costume. You could be a character from ?Star Wars? for example. Watching popular old movies can help give you some idea of which direction to take.

When you get the outfit together you?re not exactly finished. All 70s Halloween costumes should be taken to the next level by adding some acting skills to accompany the outfits. What were some common phrases or words that would fit your 70?s persona? You could even add a British accent if it works with the specifics of the outfit. At the very least, you may get some extra laughs.

Have fun designing the details of your 70s Halloween costumes; this is after all one of the most popular decades of the 20th century. With so many strong characters and personalities you?ll find that there are a myriad of options on how best to go retro with your costume. Don?t forget to add the extra bells and whistles of also acting the part. Doing these things can help you go beyond go-go boots and bell-bottoms; you can actually end up with some one-of-a-kind 70s Halloween costumes options. Edited by Hetsil Protage

Give Your Promotion Strategy An Advantage Through Lanyards

Irrespective of the kind of merchandising that an organization uses, the main purpose always is to form a positive impression on potential customers. Using lanyards is a very effective way of doing this.

One of the most well known and efficient forms of marketing at business events has been T-shirts printed with the name of the company. However, Lanyards are the newest addition in the repertoire of marketing tools. They are widely used nowadays, as potential customers often instinctively end up reading the business' slogan and name printed on them.

If made use of appropriately, lanyards prove to be very effective in corporate events such as industry exhibitions and conventions. The event can be made livelier be giving out lanyards to the attendees. By adding the name and date of the event on the lanyard, along with the company's symbol, you can make it serve the additional purpose of a memorabilia.

Lanyards hardly cost anything to the organization and they are lesser expensive than having t-shirts made for the occasion. They create goodwill among prospective customers and it is a known fact that they have a very good recall value.

Lanyards, apart from being highly inexpensive and impactful, also have other advantages as promotional items. You can use lively colours on them without irking people's eyes, which gives them a high visibility and draws attention. As they can be used for several purposes like displaying ID cards, they have a high functional value. Because of its varied uses, prospective clients can also take it home and find various uses of it, which gets visibility to your company for a long time.

Three Ways To Use Laughter To Get Through Life's Toughest Times

Ive never had cancer. But I can't tell you how many times I begged God to let me bear that burden. My son, a strapping 22-year-old junior at the University of Missouri, woke up with an aching chest that turned out to be a malignant tumor. Hes only a boy, I pleaded. Ive had a great life. Let it be me"not him.

After his diagnosis, much of what happened was a blur. Months of chemo. Surgery. Watching my son lose his hair, his appetite gone because everything tasted metallic, as all the while he wondered if he would have a girlfriend, a family of his own, a life

I'd spent twenty years studying therapeutic humor. I"d written about it, spoken on it, spent years of my life convincing colleagues, peers, and audience members that laughter plays an important role in our lives. Now, it was time to walk the walk. It was hard, I won't kid you about that. Finding something to laugh about during one of the toughest times in our lives sometimes required conscious effort. Yet sometimes, thankfully, if we would just let it, it would just happen. We'd find ourselves laughing at the situations life presented. Humor was a saving grace for all of us.

Sorrow has its hour. There were many tears. But joy has a claim as well, and there was laughter too. Lots of laughter.

My son has always been lucky in his friends. David's roommates provided him with great support and camaraderie, dubbing him "Captain Cancer" -- the superhero no one wants to be. One roommate, an artistic red-headed color blind Italian, begged to decorate my son's newly bald head with colorful markers.

He also found support at work. He worked as a bouncer at a local bar. The man he worked the door with was known as Tonto, and my son was The Lone Ranger. Following one of his treatments, a bunch of his buddies visited the bar. Afterward, David announced his new nickname, bestowed by his friends: Chemo-sabi!

Many patients long for humor during their healing process. Allen Klein, author of The Healing Power of Humor, surveyed patients who were terminally ill about their feelings about humor. A vast majority (80%!) wished to laugh more. They wanted more humor -- from the people around them. They also wanted the freedom to use humor themselves.

What is the best way to use humor? Ideally, humor is used proactively, to help heal the body and the spirit. Here are three ways to do this:

Play: We can create our own joy and wellness with play. Create a play list -- ten or more items that don't cost a lot of money that you enjoy doing. They can be simple, they can be personal, but they have to be fun. When you're feeling down, do an item from the list. This will make you feel better.

Make it easy to play by having fun toys around. Magic 8 balls, water guns, even the proverbial rubber chicken-- as long as it makes you smile, it'll work.

Surround yourself with pre-packaged laughs. Collecting funny books, magazines, movies and cartoons is a great way to keep the humor going. Ask people to tell you their funniest story or most embarrassing moment. Save jokes and funny stories. Spending time enjoying your collection can perk up even the toughest days.

Make Connections: Surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Spend as little time as possible with negative, downbeat folks who make you feel bad. Ask people to laugh -- and do your best to make them laugh. One laugh leads to the next!

To live well, you must laugh. That's one of the pivotal lessons I learned from my son. He's cancer free now, for four years. And he's also my inspiration: for his courage, his gentle spirit, and of course, his sense of humor. It's my honor to say that he's my hero.
