Anybody else sick of player nicknames these days? The good old days had Flyers with colourful names like Battleship,Hound Dog,Big Bird,Moose and The Hammer. That is great stuff, the fans could relate and loved the players.
Now nicknames consist of adding a y to the end of everybodies name…..BORING. Who needs Jonesy or Richy or Marty? Not me forget it, lets have some fun folks. Last year I started calling Afanasankov…”The Shark” and it stuck and it even made it to the dressing room.
Let’s have some fun here and start to come up with some great ideas for nicknames. I’ll add a nickname to some players and lets see if you guys like them or can come up with better names, I’m betting you guys will have some great ideas.
Upshall- The Buzzsaw
Coburn- The Stork
Knuble- Obi Won Knuble
Lupul- Top Shelf
Briere- The Cookie Monster(stole it 100%)
Timonen- The Lone Ranger(Kimmo Sabe)
Mike Richards- Kramer
Anyway that’s a start, have some fun and hopefully you guys will become regular visitors to this blog, I will try to post twice a week and I have some fun ideas.
