Witty 'club' name needed, tonight!

edited May 2011 in The bottom bracket
I'm about to enter a Sportive with (hopefully) my 2 other cycling buddies.
There's a bit on the form asking for club name, which obviously we are not, but I would like to put something in.

Sadly though I can't think of a collective name for us to use, that doesn't being with W and rhymes with multiple anchors.

We have in common:-
Posties
In our 40's
We all live on The Poets Estate, (roads named Milton, Tenyson, Chaucer, Byron etc)
All ride Italian with Campag (although only 2 of us know what that means!)

Have fun

    OK, Postie John, here's what you do.

    1. Watch the classic film, and greatest fictional film, about cycling - Breaking Away (it won an Ocsar)

    2. Forget your thoughts about why Dennis Quaid became a bigger star than Dennis Christopher. It's obvious isn't it? I like Quaidd, but I always associate him with 'Any Given Sunday', which, to my mind is one of the best sports movies ever, Now, I'm sure many of you are now shouting 'Raging Bulll' or 'Field of Dreams' - both favourites of mine. To my mind, though, nothing's really captured the full experience of elite level sport, but I thought AGS got it as close as it gets.

    .
    3. Look at the kits. Cutters are all white. Just buy some white jerseys

    4. Get some local printer to printer 'Cutters' on the jersey

    5. Ignore point 2. I just have strong opinions of how sport is depicted on film (I understand it's probably harder than filming the Yeti)

    As a mate came round early with bottles of Hobgoblin and Old Peculiar I've not filled in my application, so you've got another 24hrs.
