: : : : : I hesitate to post this because rising health insurance prices (in the U.S.) have made most people a little touchy on the subject. But I need help. We are using a basketball theme regarding our charity drive this year. I work at a government agency that regulates the insurance industry and my team is the central office management staff. My only thought was "The Bucks," as in the "buck stops here." But "bucks" has a racial connotation. You can see why I need help with this. I'm not very creative.

: : : : Buckstoppers--not flagrantly racial, I think
: : : : Bureau Cats
: : : : Irregulators
: : : : Rulers
: : : : (if a federal agency) Bush Leaguers

: : : Triplicates

: The Compliance Alliance
: The Premiums
: The HIIPA Trippers

Great! Thank you. We're going to have several teams. So I may share some of these with the competition. Or maybe I won't.
