    Help

    A co worker of mine gave me this game, I have done this before but I can not for the life of me think what it is call when you do this. You are supposed to guess the name of the football team by using the words they give us. Here is an example....

    Iron Workers = Pittsburg Steelers

    Pope's Men = Arizona Cardinals

    Do you know what I am talking about?

    The nearest I can think of is 'cryptic clues' in crosswords, though these don't seem very cryptic.
