I found an neighborhood in Fishers IN that named roads after NFL teams. Strange enough I couldn't find the Colts anywhere. You would have thought that one would have gone first.

Maybe, when the streets were laid out, they were the Baltimore Colts?

This reminded me that in Scott County, in far southern IN, there are roads named for communities (Goshen, Plymouth, Jimtown, Concord) in far northern IN.  This is especially weird since the southern end of the state was settled far before the northern end.

This subdivision in New Lenox, IL is naming its new streets after baseball players.

Dexter Street in Denver. This is a case where the street name existed way before the Dexter book and TV Series came out.

Radio Station rd in Dixon, Ca. The name sounds tacky but it has some historical meanings though.

http://www.theradiohistorian.org/Dixon/Dixon1.html

NBC had placed shortwave transmitters in Dixon, CA back in the 1940's at the height of World War II to broadcast programming from NBC radio to the pacific rim at the time. That later became the VOA transmitters.

The name "Kuse" isn't funny to you unless you know this:  https://www.google.com/search?q=cooze

Making sure this was shared:  Career Path in Colonie, NY:

https://goo.gl/maps/rf5TQ35jrJA2

This would be even funnier if Career Path went downhill  :-D
I think it actually does!

Well yeah, unless it's absolutely level, it's bound to go downhill at some point.

There's also a Better Way just east of Appleton, WI.  I thought it was goofy myself.

We have "A Cleaner Way" here in Huntsville, AL, along with a street coming off of it called "Soap Circle".

Google Maps makes this fun.  Type in the name of what you think would be funny, and see if it finds a suggestion.

I just found a Breakdown Road near Pomeroy, Washington.
