Mascots and Monikers is a documentary series detailing the stories behind the names of your favorite sports teams.

What’s in a name? We believe there’s quite a bit. Everyone has a favorite sports team, college, or alma mater, but the truth is, not many of us know the history behind the mascots and monikers we have grown to love, each of which contains its own unique, fascinating story. You don’t have to be a fan of the team, or even the sport for that matter, to enjoy learning something new. More than just sports, these stories include interesting information and facts from a plethora of subjects. In case history was never your forte, our upbeat, short documentaries are accompanied by exciting footage and compelling images, a far cry from the boredom of a classroom lecture.
