Week 13 (FINALS) Team Name Recap

Judge: Stanley J. Cohen

Topic: Star Wars

McKisselRunN12Parsex (Mokass) vs ClevLando CalBreeson (Yoss)

Star Wars is the name of the game for the Team Name Game Finals! I want to get this out of the way first before I get to the judging. Last Weekโ€™s loss to Mokass in the Team Name Game Semifinals has absolutely NO bearing on how I will judge this matchup. Itโ€™s not Mokassโ€™ fault that Moses stinks.

So, to the very Han Solo centric team names.

McKisselRunN12Parsex โ€“ I had to check Mokassโ€™ roster like three times to make sure I wasnโ€™t missing somebody on his team named Par or sex or Run. I didnโ€™t account for the โ€œNโ€ I assume he wouldnโ€™t stoop THAT low for a team name.

I just checked again and it seems to be only JD McKissic. I like this name but it has one blemish. A 12 Parsec run is garbage. Han did it in UNDER 12 Parsecs. So why is Mokass celebrating losing? Could be a sign of things to come.

Halftime show

ClevLando CalBreeson โ€“ Lando! Listen to this description of Lando: โ€œLando made a career as a gambler, con artist, playboy, mining engineer, and businessman.โ€ Guy is a MFing roller and then gets to be portrayed by Donald Glover (TROY!!) in Solo. Not bad. Iโ€™m a big fan of using full players names (take notes, Mokass) and yoss got two here with Cleveland and Brees. HOWEVER I am not a fan of mispronouncing characters names in the team names. Iโ€™m being a stickler but Calrissian should have at least been Calbreesian!

Bottom line: Mokass used 75% of a players name, Yossi used 100% of 2 players names. Both botched certain aspects of their names. In the end I couldnโ€™t get past the Yoss pronunciation error and Lando DID lose the Millennium Falcon to Han Solo who then completed the (under) 12 parsec runโ€ฆ..so your winner is MOKASS.
