The best sports team name in the English speaking world

The New Zealand Herald reports the national badminton team is considering changing its unofficial name to something other than the "Black Cocks" - although I doubt that their fan base will ever let them.

"At the recent New Zealand Open, crowds were yelling out 'c'mon the Black Cocks'. "

The Register used this news story to create its entry for the "news headline with the most Neanderthal metaphor of the year," NZ finds Black Cocks hard to swallow.
