Gameday 8: Who really needs a "Crew"?

When it comes to nicknames for sports franchises, Columbus didn't just get the short straw, it got a coffee stirrer with a crack in it instead. Their ice hockey team is called the Blue Jackets. And the MLS team is the Crew. Besides Two Live and Motley, has there ever been an interesting anything with "Crew" (regardless of spelling) at the end? (If you say Cutting Crew, I swear to Jimmy Conrad I might go supernova.) Of course, I'm bagging on the yellow-clad boys from Ohio's nickname because... well... because it's too difficult to deal with the actual facts.
