Minnesota Fighting Pike Arena Football League (1996)
If quality of nicknames determined athletic competition, the Minnesota Fighting Pike of the Arena Football League would have been a powerhouse. Others might have scoffed at naming a team after a simple fish, but the moniker managed to tie together the love for outdoors and fishing, toughness, and modesty so associated with residents of the Land of 10,000 Lakes. Sadly, this is not the case, and the Fighting Pike went 4-10 in their lone season of existence in 1996. The name was not the only part of the Fighting Pikes that was Minnesota to the core: the team roster was mostly compromised of players from the University of Minnesota (including former Gophers QB Rickie Foggey) and other smaller local universities. Perhaps the most famous Fighting Pike alumnus is Mike Vanderjagt, who enjoyed a long career with the Indianapolis Colts and New England Patriots and retired as the most accurate kicker in NFL history. Despite playing in the large Target Center in downtown Minneapolis, the Fighting Pike failed to find much of a fan-base due to a lack of promotion; the team neither had a television contract nor advertised their existence in the newspapers. Poor business sense, or too much Minnesota modesty? We’ll let you decide.
