I like fun names. I even gave this here blog a ridiculously long name because I thought it would be fun. I like to come up with fun names for posts because it's fun. Though I guess that goes without saying. But anyway. I very much appreciate when the tournament people go the extra mile and come up with an awesome name for their competition. I feel it enriches the whole registering and competing experience. Especially if they have the name on the nametags, medals, and trophies.
Did you know they have a tournament called the "Fun Tournament?" I don't even know where it is or what league it's in, but I really want to go for the name alone. Or what about the Penguin Parade tournament? You can't go wrong with penguins or parades. Both in one place? Ridiculously amazing. Between speechranks results and the Stoa calendar, I find ways to highly entertain myself with the names of various competitions.
Though they may not be quite as unique, the tournaments I go to have cool names too. Like, Concordia Challege, which sounds... challenging. Or San Diego Classic, which makes me think of classic things, like old red cars and record players. I don't know why, but it's true. And then there's IBC/ICC/Riverside/Highlands/Inland/probably a ton of other names. None of the names are particularly interesting, but I've always been fascinated that it managed to acquire so many.
It must be fun to name competitions. If I had to name a tournament, I would call it the Classic Challenge of Fun Parade. Or maybe the Competition Held At Near Distances Largely Encompassing Rome. I really like the acronym on that one.
What about you? What is your favorite competition name? What would you name your competition?
