Help name my Ultimate team!

I need ideas for a name for a new Ultimate Frisbee team. Anything goes - but usually names are tied to the sport in some clever way. It's a mixed (men and women) team, playing in Ottawa, consisting mostly of 20 - 30 somethings.

I always thought the name "Gravity Kills" (although there's already a band with this name) would be great for an ultimate team.

YODA. I like it! Good job backseatpilot!

Whiskey Disc is/was the name of one of our local teams here in Madison, WI. Love it.

Best answer: Is the joke about the Frisbeterians* too stale?

*When you die, your soul gets stuck on the roof and Jesus has to bring a ladder to get it down. Yeah, that's all I got.

Response by poster: That's pretty funny. I'd never heard of that, Nebula. Certainly has potential.

Frisbeeterianism, n.: Worship of Frisbees. Doctrine teaches that when you die, your soul goes on top of the garage and you can't get it down.

I asked a similar question, and though most answers are very topical (we are a Jewish team), you might find some interesting suggestions.

The cleverest Ulti team name I heard was "Luke I'm Yo Yo Ma" (their logo was Darth Vader playing a cello). But obviously, that one's been done

Team names usually combine one or more of the following: chill, huck, ultimate, gravity, flick, run... so stay away from those if you want to be unique. You could try one of the (fun) internet band name generators.

You're going to say, "That guy is soooo not from Ottawa," but working off the wikipedia article on Ottawa, I've got:
Fringe Flickers
FUCKCU (from the CKCU Folk Festival... yeah, I know)
SuperEXIST ('course you could use a MeFi meme and make it [NOT SuperEXIST])
Ankle Rules (sounds nice)
Tales of Beaver, Beaver Tales, or tails
The Heebie Gee-Gees
Gee-Gee spot spots
Veal Dawtta Wha?
Force Ottawa, Force Rideau (as if calling your force side)
Disc O-train
Hull-Ottawa Anchors (kinda scans like "Whole lotta wankers" doesn't it?)

Ok, I'll stop there.

Response by poster: Great ideas, everyone! I think we're leaning towards Disc Throw Inferno right now, but it's not 100%.

I'm sure these will help any other teams with a similar plight this summer.

(And nice job DuVal on the Ottawa themed names. Pretty solid.)

Thanks, Chris, hope it helps.
Oh, and one more, MacKay's Dogs. Or maybe folks have forgotten about that already?
