I’m not sure if this belongs here or in the Game Room…
My fantasy hockey league this year has an Arrested Development theme. Every team name is supposed to be something AD-related. I’ve watched the show several times, but I’m by no means an expert.
I’m sure there are lots of funny little quotes etc. from the show that would make a good team name. I know there are some big AD fans here; does anybody have any suggestions? It would be a bonus if you can give a little bit of background context from the show to explain the name.
“The Seawards”, or if you prefer, “The C-Words” (The Seaward was the name of the family’s yacht, but Lucille sometimes thought it was a word her kids used to describe her when they didn’t want her to know what they were talking about [Michael: “Gob, I want you to get rid of The Seaward.” Lucille: “I’m not going anywhere!”])
Mind the Poppins! - in the “Wee Britain” neighborhood of southern California there is a Mary Poppins doll attached to a zip line that flies through the air at regular intervals, knocking over people who don’t remember to “Mind the Poppins!”
Red McGibbon and the Bullets - based on Uncle Jack’s famous radio show, Red McGibbon and Bullet. You can use the catch phrase, Shoot me!
other key words from the show:
I’ve made a huge mistake!
The Big Yellow Joint
Blue Man/I just blue myself
Lucille/ Loose Seal
The Final Countdown
The Gothic Castle
Dipping into the Kitty
Justice is blind
Bob Loblaw, attorney at law
Les Cousins Dangereux
aaaah - there are too many to keep going on. I just don’t know enough about hockey to make any of these into some kind of neat pun.
Explanation: Martin Short appeared in a few episodes as a former 40s movie star, famous for his role in “Red McGibbon and Bullet: Nazi Hunters”. Kinda obscure. I think I’d personally go with The Lucilles (or The Loose Seals) or The Cornballers.
