13 Sports Teams Named After Sharks

shark week - sports teams named after shark

In case you didn’t realize it, it’s Shark Week.You should have realized it, of course, because it’s basically the third-best week of the year after the week between Christmas and New Years and spring break. But I’ll give you the benefit of the doubt. Maybe you’ve been really busy at work, or you belong to some weird religion that doesn’t believe in sharks.

But I digress. Like I said, it’s Shark Week. So today, we’re paying tribute to nature’s most fearsome dead-eyes predators with this list of sports teams named after sharks.

Now, right off the bat you probably assume, oh, there must be dozens of teams named after sharks. But sadly, that is not the case. Apparently people seem to be under the impression that you can only name a team after sharks if said team plays somewhere in the vicinity of an ocean. And this false believe severely limits the number of teams named after cartilaginous fish.

Someday, God-willing, this will change, and we’ll have tons of pro sports teams around the world named after all sorts of sharks. But for now, we’ll have to settle for the teams you see here.

Take a look, and may you and yours have a blessed and happy Shark Week.
