    americanyouthfootball.org goes with PeeWee.

    however, Peewee and Pee Wee have came up on google searches.

    Two words.

    Pee Wee.

    If nothing else, that's how it is in hockey, which is where they got the term, I think.

    Plus, I fucking hate the two capitals in one word thing.

    Better yet, "youth football". Problem solved.

    So we have Funky Mountain, who has looked up the official name, and you guys still insist on something else?

    I added the space because I hate the double capital, and because that's how I always did if for hockey. I don't think there is any right answer, rather that consistency is the key.

    I don't call it the Micronpc.com Bowl presented by Weed Whacker at Acme Stadium, either. ;)

    Deviating from style and official designations pisses me off to no end, but it's happened at every shop where I've worked despite my protests. Bagging sponsorships to tweak corporate masters is one thing but scrapping official names and styles because "we do it differently here" is quite another.
