List Rules Any team name of a professional sports franchise, as long as it's cool

These are the best sports team in organized team sports, as ranked by the wisdom of the crowd. Anyone can contribute to this list of great sports team names, which makes this ranking an accurate, real-time reflection of the crowd's collective opinion. Feel free to rank your favorites or add whatever team you see missing or isn't getting any love. Not surprisingly, a lot of the teams nicknames on the list feature things. That's to say, if a team is named after an animal, thing or a group of people, it's like to be on here. This is the reasoning behind seeing the New England Patriots, Cincinnati Bengals, Minnesota Vikings and New Orleans Saints representing the NFL. On the darker side of things, the New Jersey Devils and Chicago Bulls respective team names are meant to strike fear into their hearts of both their opponents and fans. But don't forget about weather elements either, which explains why Florida's own Miami Heat and Tampa Bay Lightning are on here. The weather, especially in the Sunshine State can be as daunting and intimidating as a team like the Chicago Blackhawks or Boston Bruins. No matter how you cut it, the teams on this list have the best names in all of sports and this Ultimate List is in your hands to select which of these teams has the greatest team name.
