What should our name be?

Help my curling team come up with a clever name for our tournament!

I'm terrible at coming up with a good name, my team is no help.... the tournament has a 'Comic-con' theme this year.

Any suggestions? :D

'Hammer' is a curling term and concept so "By Grobthor's Hammer!" would be my choice.

Also any Thor-related puns.

Are you seeking a name for the team, or a name for the tournament? (ambiguous syntax is ambiguous)

12 ounce curls? (in reference to beer)

This may not be a good team name but please for the love of god put "We throw Rocks at Houses" on a shirt. My curling club thought that sounded "creepy" and wouldn't let us :(

Not terribly Comic Con-scious (but slightly cosmic?):

Is the team all male, all female or mixed? Kids, young(ish) adults, seniors? Hardcore curlers or kinda casual?

mixed, all 20 somethings, very casual

great ideas so far!
