Special shout out to NFL Fever for looking like a sports sim, but having bonkers teams and stadiums

The surprisingly in depth method for naming teams in Mario Superstar Baseball.

That team that just wore Ecko branded hoodies and dirt bike helmets in Madden 2002.

Only some of the nightmare inducing teams from NHL Hitz 2003.

And since it's fresh in my mind, shout out to Yukiko from Pia Carrot for sporting this bootleg Oakland A's merch which I thought was very random to find in a 90s dating sim/eroge.

(But then again, who didn't love [The Bash Brothers](https://ca-times.brightspotcdn.com/dims4/default/6157242/2147483647/strip/true/crop/2397x3582+0+0/resize/840x1255!/quality/90/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fcalifornia-times-brightspot.s3.amazonaws.com%2F6f%2F85%2F8741003d4086a236007d92630b01%2Fbash-brothers-poster-cropped.jpg))



I coudnt find any better footage, but madden 2003 had an unlockable team named the Giza Mummies.

the wipeout (here from wipeout 3) team designs have always been a favourite of mine

go pops, go red birds, go wolves, go monsters, go zephyrs



The stadium level in Max Payne 3 was incredible.

@Jax#12597 I like that yukiko from pia carrot is wearing the oakland atlantics, that's good stuff. I wonder what would happen if I wore that around here.

Also, in case anyone didn't notice, mutant league football did eventually get a reboot, but I feel like it didn't get a lot of attention (and I never played it):

brb going to get a Luigi Gentleman t-shirt screen printed.

Meanwhile, [punkjuck.com informs us](https://puckjunk.com/2018/12/27/10-things-you-should-know-about-blades-of-steel/) that in the Japanese version of Blades of Steel, the teams had nicknames! They were as follows:

Chicago Angels
Edmonton Bears
Los Angeles Hawks
Minnesota Wilds
Montreal Fighters
New York Devils
Toronto Eagles
Vancouver Bombers

(As NHL fans will know, this list is crazy for _several reasons_.)

not in the game automatically, but you can create a team in nba 2k5 with sonic the hedgehog as the mascot

@“bodydouble”#p12600 I’m dying to know what city The Fiber is representing.

Early 90’s Nippon Ham Fighters, back when they were still a Tokyo team. They changed their colors after they moved to Sapporo.

@“chazumaru”#p41949 Never knew about these uniforms. So much better looking than what they wear now!

@“whatsarobot”#p41952 Every color change in the NPB has been dreadful but the worst offenders were the Hawks forfeiting their distinctive Osaka-era green outfits for the Giants color scheme (under Daiei) then the Tigers color scheme (under Softbank).
