It’s game week! And… Shark week!!!
— Pete Carroll (@PeteCarroll) August 5, 2013
Just a 60 year-old man who gets as excited for Shark Week as my 6 year-old cousin. An all-around good guy who brings his sincere excitement everywhere he goes.
PS- I don’t buy into the hype of Shark Week, but I won’t knock people who get excited about it.
PSS- You know he loved ‘Sharknado’
Few things give me more of a stiffy than a good nickname. I’m not just talking about willy-nilly handing out monikers. The kind i’m talking about are the ones that always stay with you, the ones that have deep meaning and just roll off the tip of your tongue. So here is my list (in no specific order) of the best nicknames in sports today. I tried diversifying between sports as best I could or else they all would have been NFL players.
1.) J.J. Swatt
The man with tennis rackets for arms, J.J. Watt
2.) The Freak
Tim Lincecum, the kid who looks like he shouldn’t even be able to reach home plate, never mind 100mph.
3.) The Muscle Hamster
As much has Doug Martin wants to shake this nickname, he never will and we won’t let him! FEED HIM
4.) The Little Ball of Hate/Nose Face Killah
The small pup who’s ready to take on any big dog that steps in his yard. (He also has a huge schnoz)
The Bass Pro Shop car is the most badass ride in all of racing
6.) Beast Mode
Give this guy some skittles and let him run free.
7.) The Durantula
The only spider I like
Transforms into a touchdown machine when he steps his cleats on the field.
9.) The Flying Tomato
Red headed, Olympic and X-Games gold medalist? This tomato has got some grapes.
10.) The King of Kings
HHH aka “The Three H’s”
P.S. The greatest nickname of all time, without contention, is “The Great One”.
