why is this being used
userTeamName = ""

instead of this:
userTeamName = askForTeamName #team name entered by the user

after calling the mainMenu() function

ok

so merely creating a variable outside any function...say at the top of your program...doesnt mean its a global variable

carCount = 0

def countCars():
   countCars = input("Enter number of cars")
   global carCount
   carCount = countCars

now carCount is a global variable
 
The human mind is a dangerous plaything. This tiny ad is pretty safe:
global solutions you can do in your home or backyard
