Los Angeles Raccoons
I’ve had a ton of teams here over the years… Vikings, Birch Leafs, and Lions, to name a few. But I’ve always been partial to animal-themed nicknames. When I started a team in the SFHL, I wanted to use an animal that’s native to where I grew up in the Adirondacks. I did some research and had a few in mind… Black Bears, Moose, Fishers. But one of the most prevalent animals in the region is the pesky raccoon. I couldn’t resist going with it… it’s probably the only animal that can be found both there and where I live now in LA. Raccoons, skunks, squirrels, and white-tailed deer… that’s probably it. So anyway, Raccoons it is. I swiped the logo from a graphic designer who made it for his fantasy team (the Boise Raccoons) and did some photoshopping… it had a skyline of mountains and stuff that I replaced with a silhouette of the LA skyline (including the Hollywood Sign!) And you’ll notice a tiny bit of lime green hidden in there… a nod to the Brewpens (my PCFL team, and the CHA’s first franchise). Here’s the original for reference: https://cdn.dribbble.com/users/58924/screenshots/1697582/boise_raccoons_shoulder_patch.jpg
Pucked in the Head
This was a fun time trying to come up with something funny and that can relate to me. Needed something that can stick in your head and that wasn’t used to much out there in Fantasy Hockey Land. I didn’t wanna have a name that was too dirty or vulgar either (i had many names in mind), being ex-tanker for the Canadian Military figured i go with something that we all knew and used pretty often (pretty often is an understatement)… F@ck!
Its my favorite word, it could be used in such wonderful and colorful ways.
I was trying to have a play on words with one of the things other divisions in the military would call us, had the choice between “gravy drinkers” (since we always rode around on our tanks they thought we were all fat tubs) and “zipper heads” (if you’re not wearing your helmet, you will end up splitting your head open trying to get out of that steel coffin). “Zipper head” was the one that i could relate to, i f@cked my head up so many times and voila the name came to me “PUCKED IN THE HEAD”. Figured after all those incidents go in and out of the tank, that my head was truly F@cked.
My design attempts looked like something a 4 or 5 year old drew on a napkin, sad but true i aint no Picasso. Had to use the google machine to find myself a logo. I found the logo fairly quickly, it was the only one that had anything to do with hockey and that i liked.
